Must do: The capital of Rajasthan is an assault on the senses. From the smells of street food to the bustling markets to the vivid beauty of the Amber Fort and Floating Palace (Jal Mahal), adventurous travellers will want to spend more than one weekend here.
If you pack one thing, it's... Hand sanitiser (not that this place is particularly dirty, but in our experience some public facilities don't have running water).
