Day 1

There are number of options available to reach Jaipur and it depends on your own convenience. So we opted for Rajasthan Roadways Super Luxury. We started at sharp 9:00 AM but we reached there at 3:00 PM Instead of 2:00 PM ( arrival time).

As we were on short trip so we don't want waste our time so we planned our visit on the same day we reached as it opens in the evening hour. It was a wonderful experience those who want to see the village life of Rajasthan must mark this place on their wish list.

As you enter the premises you will observe the art on the walls and people giving entry tickets in Rajasthani attire. The entrance itself will make you excited for the place.

The meal package is the entry ticket in itself. There is not much difference between the 750/head and 950/head meal. So the choice is all yours but I will suggest you to try traditional village dinner.

You will get so many dishes to taste that you won't get time to see and have a look at dishes. The people keep you entertained and keep serving the cuisines. Both of us loved Chorma, Daal Baati. It was really delectable.

Day 2

Rajasthan is known for its royalty and palaces and so how we can miss this palace. Please note if you are visiting this place must hire a guide to understand it better. We hired a guide and he charged us Rs. 300. It was a very good experience as he covered each and every place of the palace.

At this place you will find the art inspired from both Hindu and Muslim culture.

All these three forts can be visited together as they are in the same route. If you are not so interested in history so you can skip the later two and can go for shopping(do not skip Jaipur is good for shopping).

While coming back to the city you will get the view of Jal Mahal as it is not operational you can see it from road side only and you will find some street hawkers there to kill the time. So shop and enjoy.

Jantar Mantar is another one of such historical place where you must hire a guide. It will cost around Rs.200-300 but it is worth to know the place.

On the day 3 we covered up Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and City Palace as these places are nearby. We covered it by 1:30 PM so after this we went for a movie at Raj Mandir Cinema. If you want to visit this then please pre-book your tickets else you will stuck like us waiting in queue for tickets.

On next day we boarded our train from Jaipur Railway station to Delhi. Jaipur is a place which can be covered up in 3-4days easily. If you just want to have some change then you must visit here for short trip. And ofcourse do not forget to purchase Bandhej Saree or suits, Jaipuri quilts and jewelry(really cheap) and do not forget the rule of bargain.
