Jaipur ranks with other cities of Rajasthan (Udaipur, Mount Abu, Jodhpur, etc.) as the most exciting and popular destination. Jaipur, which is generally known as the Pink City of Rajasthan is a house to some of the majestic forts and palaces, which makes it the most loved place to travel in Rajasthan for many expatriates and tourists.
Whether you are travelling for a short duration or long, it is always good to have a rundown of items – which you should include in your bag. Here is a checklist of 10 items – you should include in your backpack while traveling to Jaipur.
A tour without a camera would be a dull affair. Going to places and not clicking pictures? Well, you’ll repent not taking camera with you. The city of Jaipur has a lot of majestic forts, magnificent palaces, lush green gardens, awe-inspiring public work of arts – which are worth capturing.
Sharing your travels with a stranger - listening to their story is such a wonderful feeling. The city has a lot of hidden stories – of culture and arts, from palaces to roads. Not only these, but your travel stories too would be amazing here.
Keep a Journal and a pen with you, and scribble your priceless moments and stories which inspired you. Reading through this journal later in your life will not only make you miss Jaipur but also these stories.
Toiletries are pesky space – fillers. Keep the count of your toiletries minimum and you’ll have the smooth travel. We recommend you to include soap, paper soap and a sanitiser in your backpack. You can buy other cosmetics and toiletries from Jaipur market.
Keep you backpack light. Keep only basic clothes in your luggage and enjoy the amazing vistas of Jaipur city. While some women would want to include a number of dresses and jump suits; two pairs of clothes would be enough for your short visit. If you wish to explore Jaipur for longer duration, we suggest you not more than 4 pairs of clothes.
The most frustrating and item of the luggage is a pair of shoes. While some people add a variety of shoes ranging from stilettoes to flip flops to their travel checklist, we recommend you to keep it basic. A pair of sneakers or sports shoes would be enough for every road you travel in this royal city. From the rocky meandering ways to the flap asphalt roads of Jaipur markets, a pair of sneakers or sports shoes will be your best companion.
Keep a small bag with most necessary medicines and pills in it. Traveling to a beautiful place like Jaipur, and suffering from high fever, punishing headache and upset stomach would only make you feel worse. After all who wants to fall ill during a holiday!
Traveling increases your knowledge and books add adjectives to it. Keep a book in your backpack – preferably a travel book (Jaipur Inside India Series or DK Eyewitness Travel Guide), read them while travelling.
A few of the important things to include in your backpack are power bank, adapter, USB Cable and other stuff. Finding a charger point or socket on the top of Nahargarh or between beautiful Aravali ranges would be an arduous task, and therefore Power bank must be included in your backpack.
How amazing and serene it would be to look at the calm Aravali ranges while travelling to the city and listening to soothing music. Without music, travelling would be dull.
