Best Things To Do In Jaipur
An otherworldly combination of old and new, Jaipur is a must visit. The things to do in Jaipur includes adventure activities, temple hopping, visiting the many forts and palaces and so on. You can also spend time by the lakes, visit the museums, sample delectable local dishes, and shop to your heart’s content.
The iconic city offers you a chance to indulge in the mainstream as well as offbeat activities, so make sure that your itinerary offers you time to do both. Some of the offbeat things to do in Jaipur include a Jeep Safari at Nahargarh Fort to experience a rush that comes from being face to face with rare wildlife. For the more adventurous soul, a ride on a hot air balloon is a must do. With panoramic views of the city and its many attractions spread beneath you, the ride is sure to mesmerize you. Other offbeat activities in Jaipur include Quad biking, zip-lining and playing games of paintball. For activities such as these, you would require a couple of days extra, so plan accordingly. Most probably you can get to take part in these activities by simply asking your tour operator or your hotel staff, and they can point you in the right direction. Try to finish your sightseeing before embarking on these activities, which might take up the entire day.
However, if you are on a tight schedule and are looking for things to do in Jaipur in one day, a day long tour of the many forts, palaces, museums, and lakes will keep you busy for sure. Keep a couple of hours handy for shopping and trying out the street food. For shopping Bapu Bazaar and Johari Bazaar are ideal, offering handicrafts to apparels, jewelry to textiles, and footwear to accessories. Remember to bargain for the price you want, although with some handicrafts it is difficult to set a price if you consider the hours of work that has been put into it. Sampling the street food and the local cuisine is a must-do when in Jaipur. Their most popular options include Mawa Kachori, Mirchi Vada, and Pyaz Kachodi.
