This is my 1st post here at, but not the last. I plan to share some amazing facts, sights and reasons on why a traveler must visit Rajasthan at least once in their life time. So to assist all those are are planning to visit Rajasthan, you will find below links quite useful.

Popular road trip from New Delhi to Jaipur

To explore Rajasthan by road, most travelers come from Delhi as international airport is at New Delhi. From here one can either catch a train from Delhi to Jaipur to hire a cab from New Delhi to Jaipur which cost like $50.

On route one can also stop at attractions like Neemrana fort and Neemrana Boali, the haunted fort of Bhangarh and I will also suggest to visit the Step wells of Abhaneri.

At Jaipur, one can visit attractions like:

  • Amber fort
  • Jal Mahal
  • Jaigarh and Nagarharh fort

All these attraction are in Amer. In Jaipur one must see:

  • City Palace
  • Hawa Mahal
  • Jantar Mantar
  • Albert Musuem
  • Pink city markets
  • Chokhi Dhani

One need to give at-least 2 days to explore all the above destinations. One can easily found accommodation in Jaipur as its full with budget and luxury hotels.

Places which one can explore near Jaipur

Travelers can explore some amazing tourist sites which are within 100 km radius of  Pink City Jaipur. Such destinations are:

  • Nahargarh Biological Park
  • Abhaneri Chand Baori
  • Panna Menna ka Kund
  • Ajmer dargah and Pushkar lake temples

So if one can stay for 3-4 days in Jaipur than all the above destinations (in and close to Jaipur) can be visited by hiring a local cab. Plus you can also rent a car from Rajasthan tour and visit cities like Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer in a week. Rajasthan car rental fare starts from Rs 9 per km and they charge minimum for 250 km per day/ 

And one of the major reason that why travelers visit Jaipur is Shopping. As Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan which is very famous for its handicrafts available in various cities like Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur etc and all can be bought at good price at Jaipur. Like a single place to visit all markets in Rajasthan. This is also the main reason that Jaipur has so many hotels and resorts.
