Jaipur as seen from Amber Fort
My choice of a touristy city that I like is Jaipur.* I usually avoid the big tourist attractions as they have so many hassles involved with them. Or at least I just visit them once.
But I still like being in Jaipur. I last visited Jaipur in 2008. And I realized that I had not seen so many of the city attractions in spite of being there many times before. I particularly recommend the City Palace for its breathtaking architecture and wonderful museum. I am sure I have still not seen all that the city has to offer.
But the biggest reason I like Jaipur is because of the shopping it offers. I am sure I get sucked into tourist traps there but I so much like the colors of Rajasthan be it fabrics or jewelery. Every time I visit the place I end up shopping which is quite rare for me!
