A comprehensive travel guide for Jaipur

Be it foreign or domestic tourists, Jaipur has always been on their priority list of places to visit. So understandably, the colourful Capital city of Rajasthan, replete with majestic forts, palaces, temples and bustling bazaars, has been much explored by tourists. But here comes a travel guide, “Love Jaipur, Rajasthan” which claims to give a new take on the city.

Written by Fiona Caulfield, the 168-page travel guide has eight sections covering the best places to eat, drink, shop and explore in the city.

Caulfield says, “Unlike mass tourist books, using this guide is like being chaperoned by a good friend.” Jaipur, she feels, “is a destination that offers travellers rich rewards if it is explored more fully.”

The book, released at the recent Jaipur Literature Festival, also includes mini-destination guides to Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer and Agra as well as some destination hotels and itinerary advice to tourists for touring Rajasthan.

More guidebooks

Caulfield is the creator of the Love Travel brand of guidebooks. The book on Jaipur is the fourth title in its India series.

Besides, the one on the Pink city, it has brought out guidebooks on Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai. Its future projects include travel guides on Kolkata, Kerala, Chennai and Goa.

“Love Jaipur, Rajasthan” is available in both lifestyle stores and bookshops at a price of Rs.1200.

Ten per cent of sales profits of these guidebooks go to the Love Travel Foundation to support social and environmentally conscious organisations.
