Discover the 'Pink City' the right way $15.00

Welcome to the ‘Pink City’. The capital of Rajasthan and one of the must-visit stops in the Golden Triangle. A city that can feel unrelenting, repellent, exhilarating and magical all at the same time. There’s no such thing as too much. Over the top and opulence knows no limits. Here Maharajas welcome their guests by painting a whole city pink (the colour of hospitality and hence it’s name). Ok, ok, you got us. It was done once back in 1876 for a visiting British Prince, but still, warmth radiates from within this walled city like an open kiln used to heat its blue pottery masterpieces. Towering 16th century hillside forts still command over the city. Polished precious stones appear from holes-in-the-wall down narrow dusty back alleys. It has beckoned the likes of Kate Winslet and Oprah Winfrey. It has inspired the collections of legendary fashion tycoons near and far. Its otherworldly attractions have stood the test of time for hundreds of thousands of selfies. Whatever you’ve heard about your friend’s friend’s cousin’s sister dropping about three dress sizes is all liesssss! These lip-smacking thalis, fiery curries and warm doughy naan have foodies up-sizing not just their palates. Remain open-minded because whatever reaction the city elicits, it will be a strong one. But by the end of your trip you will have mastered the art of emotional flexibility (with a little help from your yogi) at a level that rivals the tuk-tuks’ skillful swerves around cows on the road. Holy Cow!
