Boarded the train from Delhi at 2 PM and reached Jaipur by 7 PM ( P.S never book a passenger train). The city had changed a lot. I took Uber and reached my hotel - Peppermint near Bani Park.
The hotel was pretty decent but the food was bland (literally no salt or spices).
I had made an itinerary long ago and was strictly going to follow it. First day for Fort hopping and the second day for shopping!
Day 1 - Fort Hopping
Unfortunately, my day started late because the driver took some other family for sightseeing instead of me. I had to wait an hour and a half. When I finally sat in the car and reached Chand Pole, I forgot my camera batteries in the hotel room. *so much stress*
I grabbed my camera batteries from the hotel and officially started my day. I started recording the prominent market spots like Chand Pole, Bada Chaupar. For those of you don’t know, I’m a Rajasthani, and it was captivating knowing your roots. Women were wearing Ghagra Choli, speaking in local dialect, I have always been fascinated by this.
Although I have my fair share of childhood travel memories in Rajasthan, but there was always something different about Jaipur.
One the first day, I visited these places, and I’m going to give these in pointers so that you don’t TLDR it!
1. Jaigarh Fort: Enroute to the fort, you get the best aerial view of the city- tiny houses, Jal Mahal in the middle of the lake and a ground.
