One of the most colorful cities in the country, Jaipur offers an insight into the royal era. The bustling and bumbling city brings together a unique mix of the old and the new that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Jaipur’s handicrafts, jewelry, and Clothes will turn you into a shopaholic on the spot and its interesting mixes savories and sweets, from Kachoris to Ghewar, and the mighty Rajasthani thali will transform you into a foodie. Amidst all of this, Rajasthan is quiet famous for the historical monuments that will blow your mind.
As the largest state in India, exploring the whole of Rajasthan will take much more than just a few days (although very exciting). We had a chance of being in the city for 2 days.
Almost all the city’s attractions can be covered in two days. You can simply take an auto-rickshaw or a cab to drive you around to explore colorful lanes reflecting the vibrant culture and tradition of the state. But we decided to rent scooters.
Early morning we arrived in the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur. We booked an hostel after arriving. Don't worry about reservations you have got plenty of places to stay in Jaipur. Leave your luggage at the hotel and head to explore the pink city. You will notice straight away that many of the walls and structures are painted pink. Originally, this was done during the regime of Sawai Ram Singh to welcome Prince of Wales in the city in 1853.
