Trip to Jaipur from Hyderabad

by kroy1811

Dears,

Plan to go to Jaipur from Hyderabad. Can anyone suggest which Indian budget airlines to use ?
Or is better to arrange everything via travel agency in Hyderabad ? Can anyone suggest which agent to use and its contacts, please.

Thank you

There is NO direct flight from Hyderabad to Jaipur at present.

Better suggestion would be to go to Delhi from Hyderabad and then change to go to Jaipur.
Lots of budget airlines operate to Delhi from Hyderabad. From Delhi budget airlines operate to Jaipur.
Some of the budget airlines are Go Air, Air Deccan, KingFisher, Indigo etc..

.Check their websites.You can book available cheapest tickets on line.The earlier you book, the cheaper would be the price.I don't think travel agency's assistance is required.

Thanks Suru

Can you suggest a hotel, budget in Jaipur, near pink city or maybe other locations which is touristy and where I can arrange my travels from ?

yes you can plan from pink city of jaipur, there are flights to bangalore, kolkata and delhi, bombay from these places.

so after jaipur, u could go to kolkata and visit eastern indian cities like gangtok, darjeeling which are well connected by air from kolkata. once you reach bombay you could do a trip to the western ghats of lonavala, go to strawberry country called mahabaleshwar, drive to pune and move on to goa.
there are many options and depends on yur time factor.

for any queries in jaipur u may ask me at shomad@rediffmail.com

yes u can fly from delhi to jaipur or take a volvo bus which takes 6 hrs to bring you to jaipur. the road views are excellent as u get to see the aravalli mountain ranges. there is a stopover after 2 hrs for food and toilet use. i find the bus very confortable and the trip enjoyable. try it.

there are many travel hostels here in jaipur which are close to the rail and bus station and perhaps u could write to

jaipurtravel@yahoo.com

who run a hostel for travellers and also arrange tours cheaply--around 25 dollars per day as room rent. other options are try a bed in a dorm in the youth hostel in jaipur and u can book it thru their website at
www.yhai.org

but it is 5 kms away from the city so u have to walk or take a bus.

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Stared Down

by keeweechic

On the opposite side of the lake, I wandered further up the road. This is where the cows and water buffalo connected with the underpassage to the lake. Don’t ever take these beasts to be placid. On two occasions within minutes apart I was stared down by one of these beasts, so much so that I knew instinctively to keep moving. The last one was enroute underneath the road out to the lake area with a baby in tow. She stopped, looked up at me and made me grateful that I was on a level that I was, and she couldn’t get to me.

Laxmi Misthan Bhandar (LMB)

by TomorrowsAngel

The Johri Bazaar has the best sweet shop in Jaipur, looks to be true if you count the number of locals in the shop.
The cool cavernous shop is filled with a huge selection of sweets (and some savoury snack items) displayed behind glass counters.
The paneer ghewar (honeycomb soaked in treacle) is claimed to be the best in India, but I reckon the rasmalai was the best.
There is a restaurant leading off the sweet shop (see my restaurant tip section for the lowdown).

Getting Around

by keeweechic

You can take a metred Auto-rickshaws to get around easily in Jaipur. You might need to ensure the meter is in fact turned on or at least agree to a price beforehand. The un-metred cycle-rickshaws are cheaper but slower. Taxi’s are unmetred in Jaipur, so agree on a price also.

The Walled city

by PCuk

Jaipur is a large city of around 2million people,however the main points of interest are in and around the walled city.You will enter by one of the 7 gates,the main one being the Tripolia Gate,which was used by the royal entourage.Crowds would line the gate sides and watch the maharaja and his family with their elephants and horses pass through on the way to the palace.Today it still only used by the royal family.

Jantar Mantar

by mallyak

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the Rajput ruler of Amber and the founder of Jaipur was a learned man and an astronomer who was deeply interested in the workings of the celestial bodies and so built the Observatory, known as Jantar Mantar. The name 'Jantar Mantar' comes from Sanskrit's 'Yantra Mantra' meaning instruments and formulae.
Sawai Jai Singh II was commissioned by Emperor Muhammad Shah, to make corrections in the astronomical tables and to confirm the data, already available on the planetary positions. Sawai Jai Singh II took seven years to finish the task. He built the first stone observatory in 1724 in Delhi. The Jaipur observatory was built in 1728. There is actually a fascinating story in relation to the construction of the Observatory. According to the story, Sawai Jai Singh II sent his envoys to various parts of the world. The emissaries came back with manuals and astronomical tables besides tons of data on the advances made in the fields of astronomy. La Hire's "Tables" was one of these manuals, and impressed by it, Sawai Jai Sing II ordered the observatory to be constructed according to the data available in this manual. Amazingly, after Jantar Mantar was built, it was discovered that the Observatory was more accurate than the Table itself.
