Awesome trip of Jaipur

Jaipur is an awesome to spend your holidays. Do check Google for hotspots. Nahargadh fort, Amber Fort, Jail Mahal, Birla temple, Moti doongri temple, World Trade Park, Jawahar Circle Garden, Central Park are some of the most to be visited places. Do try traditional Rajasthani food at Chokhi Dhani

Review of Trivandrum, Kanyakumari, Madurai

The overall experience was a good one. The south Indian People ask for more money from North Indias and this is not to highlight any caste, region, religion, or race of people. But this is the genuine experience that was bothersome. The Tamil Nadu auto waalaas and the market people ask you high rates as a tourist.
