Peppy Pink City


Just like Calcutta, Jaipur has its own unique flavour, distinct from that of other cities, where you may find its long history blending perfectly well with the winds of modernity, yet leaving no signs of destructions as ruins of its ancient past.

As we had only two days to make the most out of this beautiful city, we mainly focused on the food, shopping and few popular tourist attractions.

An overnight train from Mumbai, still consumes first half of your day, leaving only the later half for heading out anywhere. Therefore, we kept our evening reserved for sumptuous Rajasthani meal at Chokhi Dhani, where we could also get a flavour of State’s art and culture.

The next day was all about hopping to tourist places in the city and testing our bargaining skill, while buying knick-knacks and handicrafts in the local market. What we could cover in day were, Hawa MahalJantar MantarCity Palace and the local markets. Our best buy for this whole trip was authentic Jaipuri Razai (quilt) which is known for its light weight and comfort.

Our last day (read, half day) in Jaipur, was a rush-rush one, with only time to visit the Amber Fort and Jal Mahal, and catch the train back to Mumbai. We definitely regretted having such less time to visit this wonderful a city.
