I consider myself fortunate enough as I have some friends who live in Jaipur, and if you're a traveller, you know a local is the best guide. So after my visit to Hawa Mahal, I headed to Indian Coffee House near MG road for some good south indian breakfast and even better conversation with a friend!
If you're in Jaipur there are a few places that serve you good breakfast and this ICH was one of them! The cheese omelette, the Idli/Vada Sambhar and the Dosas are reli(sh)able along with the filter Kaapi (coffee). I would not recommend any non-vegetarian dish at the place. Rajasthan has better places for that.
Now, as a tourist, during the day time one can visit the City Palace, The Albert Hall Museum, the Jaigarh fort and the Nahargarh and Amer fort as these are some of the major attractions in Jaipur. But, as I said as a tourist one would visit this!
So we headed to some instagrammable places in Jaipur, first one of which was the Patrika Gate. The place is located on the JLN road and holds a significant spot in the history of Jaipur. This gate is the ninth gate of Jaipur and acts as a North-South Corridor. With magnificent architecture and beautiful surroundings, this place can be an add on to your trip if you are not looking for conventional things in Jaipur.
It was already lunch time and Rajasthan is a Paradise when it comes to food, although this was my seventh visit to the state but this place always has something new!
I had in mind I'd be going in for the conventional Rajasthani food for lunch but the fellow mate took me to a fast food joint named GVD. We had a sandwich and a GVD-special Pattie along with a cold coffee and believe me, it was delicious. If you're around WTP then do give it a visit! Your tastebuds will feel good.
After the lunch, we went to the mall for some shopping (don't judge me, we did just coz we had nothing to do) Well I'll skip the mall part. Here's a suggestion, if you're up for shopping, you can visit Gaurav Tower if at all you're okay with more options in less price.
After the mall, we realised it was early evening and this is when Jaipur turns colourful!
