Discover the fabled Pink City
With its rose-coloured buildings, Jaipur, or the Pink City as it’s known, is a popular stop on the tourist trail. Our Jaipur holidays will give you the opportunity to explore this, the capital of Rajasthan.
Visit the evocatively-named Palace of the Winds with its unique filigree-like facade. Its walls were built this way to provide a screen behind which the women of the royal household could watch the festivities on the streets below. Or, take a tour of Jaipur’s fascinating Jantar Mantar Observatory with its collection of astronomical instruments dating back to the 1700s. Of course, The Amber Fort is a must. Constructed of red sandstone and marble, this opulent palace is Jaipur’s principal tourist attraction. A sprawling complex divided into four main sections, this magnificent edifice combines fortification with exceptional beauty.
Informed by expert guidance, insight and the benefit of first-hand experience, our Jaipur holidays will help you uncover the charms of this colourful city. Whether it’s an early morning cycle ride, a tour of the local markets (prepare to haggle) or a flight in a hot-air balloon for a bird’s-eye view, we’ll give you experiences you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
