Which is the best food place in Jaipur ? What are the places which we should visit in a 3 days trip ?
Jaipur is really amazing place for food and traveling. If you are planning a 3 day trip then you should visit: 1. Nahargarh fort (must go for sunrise and sunset) 2. Jal Mahal ( its in the way to Nahargarh) 3. Old city ( roam and explore) 4. Albert Hall Museum That would be sufficient for 3 day trip. Rest for food, every place has its own test. Just look, tempt, and eat.
