Guide to Jaipur


28 Kothi

A small simple friendly boutique guest house located in Civil Lines. This is where I stay while I am there, a safe haven for a single female.

Jobner Bagh

A luxury guest house.  Beautifully designed this is a wonderful mix of new and traditional.


Cafe Palladio

An absolute oasis of calm in amongst all the wonderful colour and sounds of the city.  Best place for tea.

Jaipur Modern

A global menu, so everyone is happy.  Supporting local farming communities, Jaipur Modern is associated with organic farming initiatives.

You can also shop here at the same time - some real gem items from clothing to Homewares.


Bar Palladio

Even if you only drink a lime soda its worth the trip just to gawp at the stunning designs.


Phool Mandi Flower Market, at bottom of Hawa Mahal Road

Get up and go before breakfast, its a delicious and inspiring feast for the eyes.  

A visit to Bagru where I work with my printers.  There are lots of workshops you can partake in there.

A walk through the back streets behind the Hawa Mahal, off the tourist trail, where real life goes by. So many inspiring doors and sights to see.
