Alila Fort Bishangarh, one of the many Jaipur heritage hotels arrange guided tours which is a must do activity to start off Jaipur.


See a floating palace

The storeys of the floating palace are visible depending on the water level in the man-made lake Man Sagar. Even though it would be an exciting location to be a hotel or a restaurant due to environmental pollution aspects this has been held off.

Visit the palace of winds

The Hawa-Mahal is a building that you come across in Bollywood movies and is known as the palace of winds as it has 953 windows spread around the building making it one of the exotic places in Jaipur.


Shop for rugs and carpets

If you visit Jaipur and do not shop for carpets and rugs you have not lived the experience in Jaipur to the fullest. You will see the amount of work that goes into creating these beautiful works of art that are so intricately detailed and stunning.


Visit a palace fort on the hilltop

Built from pale yellow and pink sandstone this palace is the crown of the village which adds grandeur and beauty to the village. The palace which is also known as the Amber Fort is a must-visit location in Jaipur.


Walk around a palace village

The mechanism that has gone into making the water catchment is a technique that shows the development in the minds of those who lived in Jaipur back in the day. After a visit to the palace above the palace village is an interesting location. Shop for exquisite jewellery.

Jaipur has been long known for the stunning jewellery and coloured stones that they work with. There are many who come to Jaipur to find detailed exquisite jewellery that are timeless pieces of art. There is a museum known as Gyan Jaipur where a 1000- pieces personal collection of the family patriarch is displayed.


Taste local ice cream

Kulfi is the Indian version of ice cream which is a delightful treat after a warm day sightseeing in Rajasthan. Kulfi is thicker, creamier and takes longer to melt than ice cream. There are so many different flavours you can try as there are many exotic flavours than the general flavours that you will come across anywhere else in the world.
