Royal Rajasthan Tour (5 Nights 5 days)

 

Royal! That's how a five day Rajasthan trip is to be complemented. The name Rajasthan literally means the land of kings which you can see why, as you visit the magnificent palaces of Udaipur, stay at the heritage hotels, wander through the Imperial forts of the always pink always chaotic capital of Jaipur & experience the glorious history of the gallant Rajput clan.

 

The journey to Rajasthan which generally is a part of the Golden Triangle tour( New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) which may vary according to your schedule , however in almost all the itineraries Jaipur is your gateway to the desert state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is quintessential India. Forts, palaces, maharajas & snake charmers, history, colour & pageantry combine to the project of dream India. Albeit a political centre of Rajasthan & a bustling commercial centre, it's traditional character survives.

 

 

Day1

Royal Gaitor is there to quench it , which is surrounded by straggling village where the monuments bear intricate but subtle carvings have the marble cenotaph of Maharaja Jaisingh || is particularly impressive. A trip to Jaipur without shopping is like going to Napa without tasting it's wine. If shopping is your kind of stress buster , it is your heaven. Rajasthani crafts, textiles, art works & of course, gems can be nice souvenir to take back, however there is a cardinal rule : bargain! As sometimes the genuine price for the merchandise is the fraction of the price it's being sold on. So, dont feel awkward when Bargaining comes to the level of haggling as it is quite common. Also, any price which is mutually agreed is the real price. To add up in your list of precautions is : beware of the friendly young men trying to get you the best deals through their uncles'/brother's/cousin's shop; commission is what you end up paying. Having the shopping done now its the time to hit the sack. Before you sleep just prepare yourself a little bit for the next day to avoid last minute panic.
