I live in Jaisalmer since my Birth, and very much familiar about the city. I am Hospitality student and professional. Jaisalmer is also called as Golden city. Jaisalmer has so many sights to watch while you are in Jaisalmer. The ideal itinerary for jaisalmer is 2nights and 3 days. One in the city in Hotel and second night in Desert with desert safari.
You can watch :-
Fort- Jain Temples and Museum
Havlies Patwa Haveli, Salim Singh Ki Haveli
Lakes- Gadisar Lake and Amar Sagar Lake
Jain Tmeples- at Fort, at Amar Sagar and at Loudharva
and Sam Desert /KhurI Desert.

Peakest time of jaisalmer is - During Diwali (oct-Nov) Christmas & New year (25-31 dec) and Desert Festival (Feb 12-14 feb)
You should be very careful while entering to jaisalmer and escape and ignore the Bike riders and convencers who will convence you about booking the hotel and safari in cheap rates( they can convence you by giving your card in trains, buses and also through bikes while you are in your car.)
Kindly book the hotel from authroised booking agent or online or directly from the Hotel. Dont get in touch with this type of Touts.
