Jaipur

India's official 'pink city', there's much more to Rajasthan's capital than its pink-red tinged buildings and historic splendour. This majestic home to erstwhile royals is complete with old-world charm surrounded by colourful markets and chaotic streets. A part of the 'Golden Triangle', Jaipur is a must-visit destination along with Agra and New Delhi. About 6-hours away from New Delhi, grand palaces and havelis surrounded by mighty fortresses make Jaipur a welcome respite from high-rise malls and urban living. Stop over for the cultural show at Chowki Dhani before you head on tothe world's largest sundial at Jantar Mantar, Amer Fort, and the Palace of Winds, Hawa Mahal, overlooking Johari Bazaar.

Things to do

Cycling Jaipur -Cycling anywhere is fun, but nowhere near as exciting as cycling around Jaipur can be, especially in winter.

Hike to Kuntalgarh -Head over to Amer Fort after breakfast, a mere 11 kilometres away from Jaipur, through ancient cobbled pathways towards the fascinating serpentine stairs that lead up to the fort. Built on separate levels, step out onto each courtyard for amazing views of the Aravallis beyond.

Gala dinner and cultural program -Think Rajasthan, think vibrant markets and culture. Synonymous with splendid singing and dancing, Rajasthan is renowned for its tremendously popular folk shows. The popular Kachhi Ghodi dance, sensuous Kalbelia dance and the enthusiastic Ghoomar dance are a lovely amalgamation of Rajasthan's cultural diversity.

Elephant village visit -Hathi Gaon'(elephant village) set up in 2010, is a mere 17 kilometres away from the city. Used in erstwhile battles and today's processions and festivals, the humble jumbo has made its impact in paintings and photographs through the centuries.
