Weekend getaways are your best friends when you want to live your travel dreams with full time job and family commitments. And, Delhi scores a brownie point when it comes to accessibility to wonderful destinations. So, when we suddenly felt like going somewhere for the weekend, Jaipur became the natural choice. We headed to the pink city for a weekend date with chaos, crowd and royalty. This 2 day trip to Jaipur is super packed totally in contrast to our lazy trip to Nainital.
Best time to visit:
September to February
Where to stay:
Jaipur has lots of options from 5-star hotels to budget hostels. However, we stayed in an Airbnb home. (Ideal when travelling with a kid).
To reach Jaipur: Jaipur has good road, rail and air connectivity. So, should not be a problem planning your trip from anywhere in India.
With in Jaipur: Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and City Palace are at walkable distance from each other. So, you can walk or take an e-rickshaw. For, other places, Ola and Uber are easily available.
For our day 2 in Jaipur, we booked an ola rental as it is difficult to get cabs from the forts outside Jaipur due to bad mobile network and it is also hassle free as you will have the car with you for all day.
