This time when I visited Jaipur for a weekend I thought of traveling Jaipur in a different manner, on a bicycle which gave me many advantages, beating traffic in crowded spaces, saving the costs of cabs to visit the local attractions and more importantly doing my little bit to save the environment.
I took a Raleigh MTB geared bicycle for my 2 day trip to Jaipur from Pink pedals (http://www.pinkpedals.co/) for Rs. 550 a day which was totally worth the experience I had. The first day I reached Jaipur during the day and took my cycle and sped off to try the famous local eateries and nearby attractions. Eateries included:
1. Rawat Mishthan Bhandar for pyaaz kachori and mava kachori
3. Pandit Pav Bhaji
4. Chaat at Chawla's
and nearby attractions:
1. Hawa Mahal, built in 1799 with red and pink sandstone, it has a unique five-story exterior is akin to the honeycomb of a beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas which were made in order for the ladies to observe everyday life and festivals celebrated in the street below without being seen.
