On 23rd October, we boarded our early morning flight to Jaipur from Bangalore for which we spent 2800/- per ticket as we booked it 7 weeks ahead. 6:40 flight reached Jaipur around 8 which was earlier than mentioned. Excited to have arrived early, we rushed out of the airport. We did a mistake of taking the pre-paid taxi. I recommend you to use Ola or Uber services as they cost you less. We reached our hotel which we had pre-booked. Hotel Kalyan near Hathroi fort. They charged us 1600/- for a room for 4. Room was clean and was worth the money. We had breakfast at the hotel's rooftop restaurant and left to explore Jaipur. All through our journey we used Ola cab services which we found were cheap and convenient way to roam around for a family of 4. We first visited the Hawa Mahal. The cool breezy palace was a treat to eyes. Later we went on to see the very famous City palace. We rented the audio tour guide with 4 head phones and enjoyed the history soaked beautiful city palace and museum. This palace is a must visit.
Then we went on to the Jantar Mantar which is pretty amusing. I recommend you to take a guide here because without guide you wouldn't understand those scientific Marvels.
Tired and all sweaty, we planned to have a quick lunch and head to Amer palace. Aah ! This majestic beauty. Amer palace is so wonderful and mystique. Those gardens, high altitude peek-booths. No words can explain their beauty. (The jeepwalas here try you charge you 400/- . beware of it as it is not that far to trek, I suggest you visit this in the morning and trek all the way till the palace)
Evening we went on to catch the Light and Sound show at Amer Fort. This, my friends, is something you SHOULD NOT MISS. The story of Jaipur in Amitabhji's mesmerising voice and Gulzar saab's words will carry you to another world. I was speechless after this show. While coming back, we saw Jal Mahal on the way from the banks and had dinner at the Khandelwals
