Jaipur is one of the must-visit cities in India. Each traveller has something that draws them to Jaipur and leaves them with a great impact. Tah and I also experienced the essence of the pink city.
As Valentine’s day was round the corner, we decided on living the King’s life. Yes, literally! We had book our stay in the fantabulous Alsisar Mahal. It was such a wonderful place with so many things to adore. You can check our video of Alsisar Mahal and its beauty. We would blindly recommend Alsisar Mahal for various reasons.
Market in Jaipur
On one of the days, we had been out in the streets and had observed so many things that was totally different than our recent stay in Delhi. After a super-duper lunch, Tah spotted her spirit animal, the goat and the pathway where it was standing. The pathway led to a market. What’s better than going and exploring it?!
We spotted local grown vegetables and fruits, small vendors sending various items like purses and street food joints. As we already had a wholesome lunch, we decided to sit at a tea shop there. People in the tea shop gathered there asking us various questions about our origin and profession! Tah showed some of our videos to them. What an amazing feeling it was to watch the videos we created, among total strangers in Jaipur!
Bye to Alsisar Mahal!
It was that time of our trip where we had to vacate our two-day luxury palace stay in Alsisar Mahal ! That was definitely a very bitter feeling.
Book rooms with Wego
We had booked another room for the rest of our Jaipur trip. We booked through the website Wego. This is one amazing website that we found and it is available in 130+ countries. You can find all the listings of various websites in one single place in Wego. With so many filters, you will quickly be able to find out the place of stay, quickly.
We finally reached our new place of stay! Led by a garden, was the entrance of the stay. We liked the room at the very first instance! It was definitely basic but clean. A cozy bed, table to work and a very neat bathroom was all that we needed. The price was as affordable as $11. Isn’t that a good deal! We also had an admiring view in the balcony, outside the room.
