Nowhere screams culture more than India; immerse yourself in the colour and sensory overload as you explore the awe-inspiring city of Jaipur. Jaipur is a sprawling, historical city of royal architecture; where you truly experience the heart and soul of India. This is the capital of Rajasthan which buzzes with a collaboration of old meeting new; watch rickshaws and motorbikes dodging camels while the local drivers call out to their potential customers.

Situated at the heart of the city is the City Palace which continues to overlook the city while housing the former royal family. This trip is a world away from normality and will rush your senses into overdrive for the duration of your stay.
