Jaipur holiday packages have always been in great demand owing to its vibrant culture, tourist attractions and delicious cuisine. The capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur has extremely hot summers and cool winters that are a result of the semi-arid climate of the region. To come here, tourists can take flights from Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Sharjah, Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Likewise, trains to the Pink City, as Jaipur is often called, can be taken from Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi, Jabalpur, Agra, Kathgodam, Puri, Ahmedabad and Haridwar. The two best things to do during holidays in Jaipur are sightseeing and shopping.
Jaipur needs no introduction when it comes to sightseeing for it has a horde of peculiar sites. Beautifully decorated residences of former maharajas, such as the magnificent City Palace and Jal Mahal, and grand medieval fortresses like Amber Fort, Nahargarh Fort and Jaigarh Fort are well known. Among the most famous places of interest, included in most Jaipur holiday packages, is Hawa Mahal. It has five storeys and 953 windows, from where the women of the royal household used to observe the local festivities. Another popular attraction here is Jantar Mantar – the observatory of Maharaja Jai Singh II. The Albert Hall Museum houses a rich collection of weapons, artworks, sculptures, musical instruments, carpets and costumes.
The prospect of buying some amazing local and ethnic items is another reason as to why holidays in Jaipur are planned by a large number of tourists. Some of the most popular markets here are Johari Bazaar, Chaura Rasta, Tripolia Bazaar, Bapu Bazaar, Nehru Bazaar and Mirza Ismail Road. Johari Bazaar houses numerous stores, selling silverware, dyed fabrics and ties. Iron items, utensils, trinkets and textiles can be bought in Chaura Rasta and Tripolia Bazaar. Exquisite shoes, made of camel skin; and locally-produced perfumes make Nehru Bazaar and Bapu Bazaar frequented by locals and tourists alike. Woodwork, blue pottery and brass items can be bought from the shops, located along Mirza Ismail Road.
Shopping and sightseeing are two of the best activities to do, while travellers are in this part of the country.
