The total cost mentioned above does not comprises of the Flight expenses from and to Hyderabad. Keeping that aside the total cost to explore Jaipur will be 500o.

Even though public transport is available, its better to use Ola Rentals, Jaipur day outing plans are available in Ola and I opted this feature, I roamed total Jaipur in a day and it costed me about 1000 rupees.

Jaipur is all about Forts and palaces. Even now they are some royal families in Jaipur.

You can also make Jal Mahal your last stop so that you can come to this place in the evening and have a walk at this lakefront walkway and do some shopping.

After Jal Mahal had Rajasthani thali at local hotel (Sri Balaji Veg Restaurant on the way to city center). There are no particular restaurants or hotels to suggest good rajasthani thali, you can try as per your wish.

And the last and final stop was Albert Hall museum. This place is very special. This place got a connection with the name of Jaipur as The Pink city. Albert Hall museum is named after the spouse of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert of Coburg & Gotha. He laid the foundation of this place in 1876. In order to welcome him to the city, the Maharaja then painted the city in Pink. So the city is called Pink city as you can see all of the building in the city center are pink.
