Hi everyone, This is my first try as a travel blogger. So, pardon me for any mistake.
A quick introduction about myself: I am 23 year old guy from Himachal Pradesh working in a MNC in GURGAON. I love to explore places in my short 2 days weekend & I try to explore at least one place in a month. Recently, I got a chance to visit the beautiful city - Jaipur, Rajasthan.
12 Aug,2018- Sunday morning at 7'o clock, We took our sleeper volvo bus from dhaula kuan bus stop which I booked using Travelyaari.com app.
I prefer sleeper Volvo buses as they give me enough rest & sleep, so that I have more energy & time to explore the city. The bus reached Sindhi camp bus stop,Jaipur at 01:30 PM in the afternoon.
Bus Ticket cost: 1100/- for two person.
Pick-up: Dhaula kuan @ 7:00 AM
Drop: Sindhi-Camp @ 01:30 PM
From Sindhi-Camp, we booked a Uber cab to our Hotel which I intentionally booked near to Amer fort. The Hotel name is Amer Haveli which is just opposite to the entry gate of Amer fort. The Hotel is fantastic has rich feel of Rajasthan traditional architecture. It has open dining place & traditional looking doors & windows in their rooms.
Room cost for for two per night : 1800 /-
We reached our hotel at 2:15 PM. The reason why I booked the hotel closed to Amer fort is to have enough time to explore the wide-spread Amer fort.
3:30 PM - Entry to Amer fort:
When you'll enter Amer fort, you will be astonished by the wide-spread view of Amer fort. You'll see birds flying in the blue sky, structures spread through the extent of your eye-sight & a destination.
There are multiple options to go up to the Palace including elephant ride & battery cars. You can even walk to the palace, it not more than 1 KM distance. The main palace has beautiful architecture & has great view of the whole area. It took us 2-2.5 hours to view the whole Amer fort.
As we were roaming around for continous 2 hours, we went directly to our hotel to have meal & rest.
It was almost 6:30 when we went out to check the market area. There are 10-12 shops in a smaller area near to fort which includes some sweet shops & some generic shops. Don't miss to taste the most delicious sweet of Rajasthan - Ghevar. You'll easily find it in local sweet shops.
And with sweet taste of Ghevar we finish our first day in the open dining area of our Hotel with a nice view of Amer fort before us.
