    In the month of November this year, our families are planning a trip to Jaipur together for about 9 days. It would be the first time we would all be traveling to Jaipur.

    We know about the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur and that's about it really and we need some help in knowing what to do in Jaipur during our 8 days stay there, so we can arrange some kind of itinerary and be able to see all the tourist places there.

    When I ask about what to do in Jaipur it includes finding out about the sightseeing places as well as any kind of activities that we can take part in.
