Summer is upon us and we just cant help but throw back to Rajasthan. Krishna and I both went there during the cooler months last year and can’t help but overwhelm our Instagram feed with all the architecture and art we saw there. It’s been a while since we wrote a travel post - don't worry, a Singapore one will soon follow - so heres to the second addition of the PureSpaces Travel Diaries dedicated entirely to our favourite Royal city of Rajasthan: Jaipur!
Palace hopping is a thing - between Hawa Mahal, City Palace and Ajmer Fort, you’ve got you're main tourist bases covered. Once you’re done, do a Palladio hop, believe us, it’s worth it! The interiors at Cafe Palladio are cute and quirky, making it the perfect lunch spot while sultry Bar Palladio across the road is a great way to end the day with a drink. We also recommend Spice Court for Lal Maas and Kheema Bhati, Anokhi Cafe and Zorrow for some mind blowing vegetarian food (yes, you read that right, oxymoron we know)! Jaipur is an art, craft and textile capital! Make sure you do a bit of street shopping and check out Ayush Kasliwal’s store, The Blue Potter Store and Arihand Arts. All these places were recommended by Tanushree our office coworker and Jaipur native. This fantastic place is a huge source of inspiration for us and we’d love to go again and again but for now, you can always stalk our wistful #tbt’s on Instagram.
