How To Cover Jaipur In 1 Day

Nearly 3 centuries since its commencement, the pink city of Jaipur isn’t

pink anymore. Jaipur is a fascinating and historical city which provides

range of unique and charming activities and attractions. Jaipur typically
requires two or three days to fully explore but unfortunately, due to

of time or any other external factors may only allow for a single day

to discover the city. But I am here to provide you a suggested itinerary
for a 1-day tour to Jaipur, which includes only the most popular and best
sections of the city.

The day will be divided into two parts; where the first section leads to
the city center of Jaipur and the second section travels to the Amer Fort
and the Jal Mahal. If you love to ride an elephant up to Amer fort then

palace must be visited during the morning, as the elephants perform a set
number of trips per day. The second section of the day (Amer fort)

a taxi or rickshaw because it is 8km outside of the city center.
