Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and is one of the most visited cities in the country by foreign tourists. Its royal charm and heritage value are instant crowd-pullers. So, an experience of this historic city with an India luxury tour should always be on your mind. Let us see how Jaipur can mesmerize you:
a. Amer or Amber Fort: You haven’t seen Jaipur if you haven’t seen the Amber Fort. It is the best attraction of the town and is so rich in history that you will feel completely overwhelmed. A personal tip would be to always hire a guide. Guides are not that expensive and would cost you around Rs 100-200. Without a guide you will miss out on interesting trivia and may find it a Herculean task to explore the length and breadth of the mammoth fort. It is here that you shall come across the palatial rooms of the medieval kings. The view from the fort is also hypnotic. During the evening, the light-n-sound show is held and is very informative and engaging. Luxury tours to India can be chalked out to include the show. The show lasts for an hour and is aired in both English and Hindi.
b. Hawa Mahal: Hawa Mahal or the Palace of the Winds is a monument which has got history and class written all over it. Unlike the Amer Fort, it does not have much to offer and so there is no need to take a guide. You can use the staircase and climb to the top to peep through the various ‘jharokhas’ or windows. The view is fascinating and is a photographers’ delight.
c. Albert Hall Museum: If you are interested in museums, then Albert Hall Museum won’t disappoint you. It has an eclectic collection of coins, arms, weapons, ornaments and costumes belonging to the rulers of bygone centuries. The Egyptian Mummy is the highlight and the best reason why you should book this luxury India travel.
d. Jaipur Zoo: Jaipur Zoo is another attraction you can visit especially if you like animals and birds. Though the zoo is nothing extraordinary, it does have its quota of tigers, panthers, bears and wolves. Crocodiles and deer of all kinds are also visibly present.
e. Chokhi Dhani: India luxury tour without a visit to Chokhi Dhani would be a big loss, since it is a very famous attraction of the town and has also spread its wings in other parts of the country. Apart from entertainment, games and great food, you can expect plenty of folk music, folk dance and even folk magic show. The entry price would be around Rs 450 per person, but you will get more than your money’s worth.
