The Ultimate Jaipur Itinerary

After immersing myself in the laid-back charm of southern India and Kerala earlier this year, I was craving a bit more of a city vibe exploration. Here’s the Ultimate Jaipur Itinerary to enjoy the incredible spots the city has to offer… because what’s more perfect than the cultural richness and architectural marvels of the capital of Rajastan? 

Known as the Pink City, Jaipur boasts a unique hue that sets it apart from other cities in Rajasthan.

The origins of this distinct color scheme date back to 1876 when Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II ordered the city to be painted pink to welcome the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. I couldn’t help but wonder if the Maharaja who decided to paint the town pink was secretly a marketing genius.

This gesture was not merely an aesthetic choice; it symbolized hospitality and warmth. The tradition stuck, and today, the blush-colored facades of Jaipur’s buildings continue to enchant visitors. The city’s rich heritage is evident in its palaces, forts, and temples and I’ve prepared a 2.5 days itinerary for you to discover the main spots during your next visit!

Attention Instagram addicted! Spoiler alert: Jaipur is not just a city, it’s a full-blown Instagram paradise where every corner is a colorful building, offering a texture-rich photo opportunity

we were a group of 3 friends travelling together, therefore if you are a couple or travel alone, you might spend more as you won’t split the cost of the transfers/drivers/taxi. Tips are not included in the costs. Iddidn’t add the lunch and dinner expenses because this is depending on your style and budget. You will find what we spent in the section below, but we choose fancy places and treated ourselves (we had a birthday celebration!)
