I had this trip on my mind since many days, but couldn't get my hands on the perfect day or timings or whatever.  Well then finally I and a friend randomly decided to go to Jaipur. What made this trip so special was that this we both are females and it was our first time planning and executing a trip alone. With a budget in hand and our hotels and tickets booked we started an adventures journey to "Jaipur - The land of Royals".

Day1 - It was 2N/3D trip, we started from Delhi on Shatabdi and reached Jaipur by 10:30 where the first thing we did was book a day trip with RTDC which has its office there at station itself, the tickets were meager 350/- p.p., after that we went to our hotel and left for Chokhi Dhani in the evening, where we got the entry tickets for 550/-p.p. (inclusive of dinner), we had an amazing time there amongst beautifully decorated village, we had the authentic Rajisthani dishes, our stomachs were full but our taste buds were still lusting over the sumptuous food. Well the day 1 had to end and we had to get our rest so we left for the hotel at around 11 pm, but the place has just started to get its share of visitors.

Day2 - Our RTDC tour started in early morning at 9 am and ended at around 6 pm. In between we saw almost all the major attractions in Jaipur, like Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jal Mahal, Nahargargh and Devgargh Fort, Jantar Mantar, Birla Temple, Had lunch at roof top of Nahargargh (provided by RTDC). Guide also provided by RTDC, The only expenditure we had to bear was of the entry fees for every monument.

Day3 - We left our hotel at 12 and went to the famous Johari Bazaar in the heart of the city. I must say it was the bestest part of the whole tour as it includes "shopping".

Well to conclude a trip to Jaipur is must and it is very economical as well, and being a female I can say Jaipur is safe at night too, it has everything, malls, movie halls, it is getting its very own metro in some more time. he best time to travel will be November to December or else the heat will definitely kill you. 

It is a giant big clock adjacant to City Palace, it is an observatory made by Jai Singh in early 1700's and it still is the largest and most accurate clock. If you like to see what great scientists and planners Indians are, and if you are even a bit facsinated about astronomy, this place is a must visit.
Within the walls of the city, this is a beautiful place with all the beautiful gardens and a blend of Mughal and Rajisthani architecture. It is the best place to know the culture and history of Rajputana fmily which ruled Jaipur.
It is a beautiful temple, made from marble on a hill top which gives an amazing view of the City.
A place where you can lost all track of time, It is basicall a summer resort for the royal family..in the middle of artificially created reservoir "Man Sagar" made in reign of Madho Singh, the place is so beautiful and serene that you can look at it for hours and still want to be there for couple of more hours. One can not enter the Mahal but can see it from far, Well it is Jaipur's own Marine Drive.
Hawa Mahal is the landmark of Jaipur, it was constructed by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh to enable the ladies of the Royal Household to be able to see all the Royal Processions happening in the city, it has a museum in it too depicting the royal clothes, armours, ammunition.
This is an extravaganza of Royal architechure, sitting on the top of Jaipur the fort's main purposewas maybe to overlook the whole city and to protect it from the north end, but it also offers a spectacular viw of the city, it has a garden restraunt too where you can have your meal overlooking the beautiful Jaipur.
Amber is situated around 10 kms away from Jaipur, here you can see the beautiful blend of hindu and mughal architecture. Also the main attraction maybe that it is used in many of the bollywood movies and some television series too.
