If you visit Jaipur and take a look at the city from a neutral viewpoint, you will realize that apart from embracing the ancient history of the state and the city, it has also become in sync with the latest parts of globalization.

It is a city that coexists with the malls and the forts, bars and the temples in an interesting manner. It is a city where you will find youths wearing the latest brands of clothes and accessories and older generation wearing clothes shopped from the streets. In other words, Jaipur coexists with the best of both worlds.

Plus, a night tour of Jaipur sights is a must as without that you won’t see the amazing light and sound show at Amber fort or the amazing folk programs for travelers at Chokhi Dhani village near Jaipur airport.
