Why You Should Visit Jaipur
Fondly named as the Pink City, Jaipur is known for its colored architecture and offers many fascinating cultural attractions which have led to its status as one of India’s most popular travel destinations. The city boasts some of India’s finest architectural gems like the Jal Mahal palace on the Man Sagar Lake or the stunning Amer Fort just outside of Jaipur, so sightseers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to devising an itinerary. Any visit to Jaipur wouldn’t be complete without seeing the maze-like bazaar with its fragrant spices and exotic wares where you can pick up some memorable keepsakes of your journey.

If you are a UAE national you can apply online for an e-visa before traveling to India which is valid for up to 60 days. The weather in Jaipur gets very hot on a level similar to the UAE between April and June with highs of up to 40 degrees, although you can expect cool temperatures in the mid-20’s over the winter period. There is also a brief rainy season in the region beginning in July and ending in August so you may want to avoid this period.
