A May 2000 trip
to Jaipur by actonsteve
Quote: Jaipur is quintessential India. It is the India of Maharajah's palaces, rajput warriors and elephant rides. The old city is coloured salmon pink and it's streets are full of camels, autorickshaws, sadhus and bullock carts. This is the India you have travelled thousands of miles to see......This is Jaipur...
There is a reason for Jaipur's popularity and the sights here are some of the best in India. The City Palace can be generally walked to from your accomodation but others such as the fabulous Amber Fort need an autorickshaw or a bus that leaves outside the Hawa Mahal. Jaipur is very rewarding but you can feel you are a moving target in this city for beggars/rickshaw-wallah's etc. If you are sensitive to this then maybe base yourself in Bharatpur and do Jaipur on day trips.
