My Guest Post for Indie Travel Podcast: 4 Things To Do In Jaipur!

I had recently written a guest post article for Indie Travel Podcast, an independent travel hub with regular audio and video podcasts along with articles by travelers from all over the world hosted by Craig and Linda Martin. I am very happy to see the same going live today.

Following is a small preview of the post -

Jaipur is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Everywhere you look it’s like stepping back in time, with its colorfully-attired women, men in their spotless dhotis and equally colorful turbans and the sight of the camels finding their way amid the vehicular traffic. You can’t help but be amazed at what this city has to offer; you can shop, take in art and culture or just enjoy the city’s romance...
 Colorful Pots in Jaipur

Here's the link to the complete story - Four Things To Do In Jaipur, India

So, kindly head over to Craig and Linda's space to read the entire thing. Thank You!

  7. Beautifully written Arti. Jaipur also reminds of the pink shades that can be seen all over, and the camels that rest on the sides of the road, which I've never seen anywhere in south india. I loved every bid of Jaipur..And the temple, forts, Chowks, bazaar and katchoris..Din't taste Jelabi though :(

  11. I can see how Jaipur City is a center of tourist attraction. The shot of Fort is great, and so is the temple.
    Shopping sounds exciting. Some may be good at driving a hard bargain. That must be one of the things people enjoy.
    Thank you for your beautiful post, Arti.

  18. Hello,
    I came across your website and found it very enjoyable. I just had a couple of questions so if you could e-mail me back that would be great!

  19. Thanks Arti for a really interesting oversight of Jaipur! My husband went there back in May and said it was too hot for him but I think that was the worst time to go. I'd love to check it out sometime. When is the coolest time of year to go?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Jaipur is very beautiful. I had to google it for its location.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Arti Nice to read your post.Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you everyone. I am glad you liked the guest post. :)

    @Alexandra Jacob Can you please leave your questions here along with your e mail-id so that I can get back to you with the answers?

    @EmmaK You are right. May is the hottest and should generally be avoided to Jaipur. The coolest months would be either January or February and they are the best time to visit the city.

    @gigihawaii I think I missed out mentioning the state. It is capital of the state of Rajasthan in India.

  23. Hi,Arti.
    I love to see the many colorful pots in Jaipur.I would like to pick one to display in my living room! They are beautiful.

    Have a nice weekend.

  26. Looks like Jaipur offers everything I expect when travelling abroad. Your writing is so intriguing, Arti, that makes me in the mood for being in the city. Architecture tour would be perfect for me as personally I prefer the state of somewhat erosion as natural progression to the renovated architectures. I must be careful not to get lost as I tend to wander into farther and farther being absorbed in taking pictures – surely I’d be into that. I’d also enjoy people watching, especially women in such colorful clothes, and eating so that I’d gain weight.

  31. Arti,
    What a fascination Jaipur is!! A trip to Amer Fort is a kind of Time Slip for me, taking me to the olden days. I feel the structures are quiet story tellers of the long history. I love this tranquil and solemn atmosphere.
    I also want to try Jalebis.
    Thanks a lot for giving me a fabulous trip!!

  33. Govind Deoji Temple is so beautiful. I feel it Arabian building. The color of people's clothes are individual. I think they fit the southern country.
    I have to improve my bargaining skill till I willvisit Jaipur.
    Thank you for great photos!
