We all wait desperately for the Jaipur Literature fest that is an annual affair. While visiting it we do plan to roam around in Jaipur and make the most of our time there.
So, we bring to you simple yet fun things that you can do while your stay in Jaipur –
Shop at our own Bapu Bazaar
We think of a thing and it’s a guarantee to find it there. From the world famous Kohlapuris to those churans to die for, it has it all. Unleash the jewellery collector in you and buy as many jhumkas as you can from the multiple shops, while you’re there. Look for tiny shops, almost like a hole in the wall in main Bapu Bazaar to get bed covers and quilts with typical Jaipur motifs.
Eat the mouthwatering Pyaaz ki Kachori
Gorge on Pyaaz ki Kachoris at Rawat Mishthan Bhandar – that has been selling some of the best kachoris in town since 1972. Make sure to pack some for later because you’re going to crave it for sure! The kachoris are available from 6 am till 10 pm. It definitely is a must have everytime you visit Jaipur.
Chai at Tapri
Who doesn’t love chai?! Take a tea halt at Tapri Pratham, an offbeat tea shop that caters to contemporary tastes with a touch of tradition. Enjoy a bun maska or go for our favourite Cheese Chilly Toast with a hot cup of Cutting Ishpecial tea.

Visit Anokhi museum and cafe
Anokhi is famous for its textile production and has a number of outlets around the country selling popular indian and indo-western attire. Take a break from shopping, even if you might not need one, and enjoy a comforting meal at the Anokhi Cafe. Made using fresh organic products grown locally at the Anokhi farm, the food they offer is both, healthy and tasty.
Take a road trip to Tilonia and shop for some unique prints
