    What Makes It Awesome

    Popularly called the Pink City, Jaipur has Hawa Mahal at the heart of the town, and as the name suggests, Hawa Mahal is indeed very windy and beautiful. It's very charming in its own way. One can spend hours at this monument with a book in hand, and while at it, also look at the bazaars below through the old tinted colourful windows. City Palace has Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal which is at a walking distance from Hawa Mahal, but people can also take tuk-tuk rides to the palace. The various bazaars of Jaipur - Nehru bazaar, Bapu bazaar, and Tripolia bazaar are famous for their dupattas, kurtas and silver jewellery {don't miss out}. Handmade decorative items too are a seller. Chokhi Dhani is the absolute best place to have the feel of the royal glorious Rajasthan. With camel rides, mehendi wali, jaljeera and golgappas, this place is a mini Rajasthan at a glance. The warmth of the servers makes you feel at home. The malpuas they serve at Chokhi Dhani need to be declared as our national dessert- they're that delightful.

    What Could Be Better?

    If you decide to stay near the old city, transportation is not a problem then.

    What's My Pro Tip?

    Students visiting the place, don't forget to bring your ID cards as they give student concessions. Search for a place to reside around the old city as all the tourist attractions lie inside the four walls {Chardiwari} of the old city.

    Anything Else?

    Albert Museum, the oldest museum in the city should be visited for a glance into the royal history of the city. For all the literature lovers, Jaipur Literature Festival is the 'it' festival and it takes place towards the end of January, so if you're visiting around that time, make sure to go and attend.
