"Pink city with gray shades"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted Dec 31, 2017
We visited Jaipur in Jan 2017. We're staying at Umaid Mahala.
Unfortunately the trip turned out to be completely underwhelming and disappointment for number of reasons,
1. Umaid Mahal- It's imitation of period building unfortunately they couldn't pull it off.
2. Very poor hygiene and staff though honest in their effort was not fully qualified to work in hospitality.
3. Food was a disaster, looked like chef is still figuring out how to make idlis.
4. There is your company affiliated to hotel that provides vehicals,
The vehicles in bad shape and the driviers are very dubious they seem to have been on payroll on many restaurants and shops across the city not to mention these shops and restaurants are scamming tourists.
T. One of the biggest scare in our travel was shop called 'Rajasthan textile development corporation' aka the name resembles to a government organisation however it is elaborate scam just stay away fro this shop and do not buy a single thing from them.
To sum it up Jaipur disappoints you on every front and appeats to be one big scam city. I would recommend tou stay away from Jaipur, instead visit Udaipur or Jaisalmer.

This was my best trip with the college grip. It was so adventurous and relaxing. You can see the best heritage sitesike hawa Mahala Birla temple etc. It's a great place for photography adventure relaxation and more. You will enjoy more in the evening or night as Jaipur is hot and humid place

It's a nice place to visit with your family and friends at any time of the year ... The food is nice with the speciality of Dal bhati and the heritage culture in chokhi dhani is jaw dropping ... More places to visit are Hawa Mahal, nahargarh and also the jecc ..

"Architectural beauty"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Nov 30, 2017
Jaipur is very touristy. Everyone from the cab drivers to restaurants take good care of tourist. The whole of pink city is seen only in old town. The new buildings don't bother to make the pink city theme. But new arches that has come up in all directions including the one by a builder and developer is made with pink paint and trellises architecture.
One needs at least 3 days to visit important places without any leg pain. If one needs to go to Ajmer and Pushkar, please add another day. All the forts are worth the visit - but not on the same day. By evening most of the attractions close off. So one night with Amber palace sound and light show and one night at Chokhi Dhani village, is a good plan. May be shopping and enjoying the bargaining game at Bapu bazaar one evening.
Every hotel arranges taxis for sight seeing. Otherwise there is Uber at any time. Especially to the air port Uber charges only for the travel, say Rs. 230 whereas the taxis charge both ways Rs. 500. All are very reliable.
At Jaipur one can manage without knowing any Hindi also.
There are traffic jams at office hours in busy roads. But the taxi drivers know about it and take different roads to reach the airport. But Jaipur airport is messy with long queues and no proper sign boards. So it is better to arrive 1 hour earlier than the boarding time.
Seeing many foreign tourists itself an attraction at Jaipur. Few of them took my photograph to show an old lady in elegant saree.
Though I visited in November, the day was hot needing cap and goggles and night cold with sweater and shawl.
I got a cushioned top from Bapu bazaar for Rs. 800 for evening trip to Chokhi Dhani. Enjoying Jaipuri food was done at Chokhi Dhani. Nothing interesting except different type of halwas. One hard ball to be broken and eaten with a sweet dish - I did not like it.
