The Best 2 Day Jaipur Itinerary – How to Spend 2 Days in Jaipur

2 Days in Jaipur

Planning 2 days in Jaipur and seeking a comprehensive itinerary? Great, because we have got you covered. In this guide, we bring to you what we consider to be the best places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days. We also include the best places to eat, where you should stay, and all of our top tips, so that you can spend less time planning and more time enjoying this magical city.

Commonly referred to as the ‘Pink City, thanks to its signature tericotta architecture, Jaipur is one of the most visited cities in India. Packed to bursting with architectural gems, from enchanting palaces to ancient forts, it’s easy to see why.  Exploring Jaipur felt like a scene straight from the movies, and if you are even remotely interested in Indian history it’s an essential addition to your India itinerary.

At the same time, If I were to be truly honest, I would say that we had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Jaipur. On the one hand, Jaipur is everything we dislike about big cities – loud, dirty, and horrendously busy. On the other, we were fascinated by the organised chaos, which makes Jaipur, well, Jaipur.

Anyhow, there is a lot to cover for spending 2 days in Jaipur, so let’s get to it!

Is 2 Days in Jaipur Enough?

Jaipur is a vast, sprawling city with lots to see and do. But if you plan your 48 hours in Jaipur wisely, you should find it enough to get acquainted with the city. This Jaipur Itinerary ensures you cover all of the city highlights so by the time you leave, you’ll feel like you haven’t missed a thing.

We actually booked to stay for 4 nights in the Pink City, but both agreed that 2 days in Jaipur is more than enough. As I mentioned earlier, the city is busy and intense. So personally, I wouldn’t spend any longer than what’s really necessary.

Where to Stay with 2 Days in Jaipur

There is no shortage of accommodation options in Jaipur, catering to various budgets and tastes. However, to make the most of this 2 Day Jaipur Itinerary, it makes sense to locate yourself centrally. This way, you can avoid journey time eating into your valuable exploring time. I’ve made some hotel suggestions below, or you can click the link for a list of all hostels, guesthouses, and hotels in the city.

Hostel $ – Hostel Lumb’s Nest 

We stayed in a private room at Hostel Lumbs Nest in Jaipur, and we couldn’t rate it any higher. The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home and were completely comfortable with us being a lesbian couple. The room was spacious and clean, and we had a delicious local breakfast served to us every morning. My only complaint is that the location isn’t very central, but in the end, it was nice to be able to escape the hustle & bustle.

Check prices and availability for Hostel Lumb’s Nest here.

Budget $ – Treebo Raya Inn

Treebo is a popular chain of budget hotels in India, and their 3* establishments are always a reliable choice when seeking a value option. Located 100m from Jaipur Railway Station, Treebo Raya Inn is central enough to visit all top tourist attractions in Jaipur conveniently. For less than $20, all rooms come equipped with air-conditioning, wifi, and everything else you need for a comfortable stay. 

Check prices and availability for Treebo Raya Inn here.

Mid-Range $$ – Shahpura House

It’s incredible what you can get for your money in Jaipur, and Shahpura House is a prime example. Set inside a traditional Rajasthan haveli, this luxurious hotel resembles a small palace. The interior is breathtaking and provides an oasis of tranquillity to retreat to after a busy day of sightseeing. Featuring a swimming pool, spa, restaurant, and beautiful rooms, this is unbelievable value for money at under $100 a night.

Luxury $$$ – Taj Rambagh Palace

You can expect nothing short of 5* luxury and celebrity treatment at the former palace, that once served as the residence to the Maharaja of Jaipur.

The Best Places to Visit in Jaipur in 2 Days

I go into quite a lot of detail in this comprehensive Jaipur itinerary, so if you’re short for a time here’s a brief overview of the best places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days.

2 Days in Jaipur Itinerary

2 Day Jaipur Itinerary

A myriad of world heritage sights, bustling bazaars, extraordinary temples, and hidden gems make up the top places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days. Here is our suggested 2-day itinerary for Jaipur that ensures you’ll cover all of the city highlights.

Jaipur Itinerary – Day 1

From the cities most popular landmarks to a secret sunset spot, here is some inspiration for your first-day sightseeing in Jaipur.

Discover Jaipur on an Organised Tour

For a hassle-free experience where you need to do nothing but make a booking, the Jaipur Heritage Tour is the best-rated tour on the market. On this tour, you’ll visit the cities most famous landmarks, including Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal, and the Jaipur City Palace. There will be air-conditioned transportation provided to make your journey as comfortable as possible. And an English speaking guide will join you throughout the day. For more information and to make a booking, check out the link below.

Patrika Gate

Patrika Gate is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Jaipur. Located 30-minutes outside of the city centre, the gate serves as an entrance to the peaceful Jawahar Circle Gardens. At the same time, it is considered to be one of the most instagrammable places in India.

While Patrika Gate is just one of the many architectural marvels in Jaipur, the grandeur design is truly sensational. We were left mesmerised by the vibrant and intricate walkways, that serves as a true reflection of Rajasthani culture.

Keen photographers will be in their element shooting at the Patrika Gate. However, if you want to avoid the crowds, we suggest getting there pre-8am.

Afterwards, you can enjoy a relaxing stroll in the gardens.  Featuring a jogging track and workout machines, it’s a popular work out spot among locals. Other facilities include a park area and picnic spots, so it’s a nice place to visit if you have little ones.

For more information regarding this spot, you can check out our complete guide to Patrika Gate here.

Patrika Gate Entrance Fee:  Free

Jaipur City Palace

When planning a trip to Jaipur, every guidebook, travel blog, and tour guide will tell you to visit the City Palace. And while we agree it is one of the most important places to see in Jaipur in 2 days, we wanted to share our honest opinion of the City Palace. Hopefully, this will help you decide if you’re going to pay the hefty entrance fee to visit.

First of all, there is no denying the sheer magnificence of the Palace Complex. A Unesco World Heritage Site and residence to the Royal Family, naturally there are no holds barred in its extravagance. On the other hand, we couldn’t help but feel it was a bit of a tourist trap.

After paying a hefty entrance fee compared to other city palaces in India (10 us$), we felt stung but hoped the price would be warranted. Unfortunately, this ticket only granted us basic access to the palace, and to upgrade would have been an extra 15 us$. It wasn’t a huge deal, but we were limited to certain areas of the palace grounds.

Anyhow, if you’re interested in the history of Jaipur or enjoy photography, you may want to consider adding the City Palace to your itinerary. But for backpackers on a budget, I recommend putting the entrance fee towards other tourist attractions in Jaipur. You can read our honest review of Jaipur City Palace here.

Entrance Fee: The entrance fee for foreigners to access the premises is 700 Indian Rupee – equivalent to around £8; however, if you want to access the unique museums and secret rooms, the price is 2000 IDR/£22.70.

JAIPUR CITY PALACE

The Jaipur Stepwell

Historically, stepwells were constructed to collect water for in times of drought in India. However, they do not only bear historical significance. The symmetrical design of the stepwells is another example of unique architecture that prevails throughout the country.

When we visited Jaipur Stepwell, we were thrilled to be the only ones there. After seeing some incredible posts on Instagram, we were surprised to learn that it is strictly prohibited to step foot inside the stepwell. Of course, like most things in India, a bribe to the guard would have soon eradicated this problem. But, we decided against it on this occasion.  

Entrance Fee: Free – That is, unless you want to bribe the guard to allow you on the steps.

The Jaipur Stepwell is a must visit when spending 2 days in Jaipur

Amber Palace

If you have to choose between the Jaipur City Palace and the Amber Palace, we recommend putting your money towards the latter. The Amber Palace was once residence to the Royal Family before they relocated to the City Palace. However, in our opinion, Amber Palace is the most impressive.

The grandeur structure, constructed from red sandstone and marble is easily one of the most beautiful places to visit in Jaipur in 2-days. Inside the palace grounds, you will find a series of pristine gardens, intricate courtyards, and spectacular photo opportunities, including a stunning mirrored room.  

While we suggest making Amber Palace a priority on your Jaipur Itinerary, we have to ask that you don’t participate in elephant rides. Many tourists opt for elephant rides up to the palace entrance, without knowing the horrors behind animal tourism. For more information, check out our guide to Amber Palace here.

Day Entry Fee into Amber Palace is Rs. 500 for foreigners and Rs. 100 for nationals.

Night Entry Fee into Amber Palace is Rs. 100 rupees for both foreigners and nationals.

*Budget Tip – If you plan on visiting other attractions in Jaipur, you may want to consider purchasing a Tourist Composite Ticket. This allows you access to 10 attractions in Jaipur at a discounted rate. Tickets can be purchased online.

*Travellers Tip– The Amber Palace is considered one of the best places to visit in Jaipur at night when dazzling light displays adorn the grounds. Alternatively, you can check out the light and sound show which focuses on the history of Jaipur. Tickets are available to buy online.

Amer Fort View Point

Hidden gems can be hard to come by in ever-popular Jaipur; however, the Amer Fort viewpoint offers a peaceful retreat from the congested city. Located across the lake from Amber Palace, several watchtowers boast a spectacular view of the fortress and city below. If you have the energy, you can also walk the perimeter of the fort in search of different vantage points.

I think we owe thanks for the viewpoints solitude, to the rather challenging stairs to reach it. It isn’t necessarily a long hike, but it’s strenuous enough to get the heart rate soaring. If you’re in good shape, you’ll reach the top within 15-20 minutes max. As well as being a place of serenity, the Amer Fort viewpoint is an underrated sunset spot in Jaipur.

Entrance Fee: Free.

Jaipur Itinerary – Day 2

From temples teeming with monkeys, to a spectacular fort for sunset, let’s plan day 2 of your Jaipur Itinerary.

Jaipur Instagram Tour

Accompanied by an English speaking guide, this tour is perfect for travellers who may need assistance taking photos at busy Instagram locations in Jaipur. Bearing in mind that tripods are not allowed in most tourist attractions in Jaipur, this is a worth-while tour indeed. For more information and to make a booking, check out the link below.

Galta Ji (Monkey) Temple

Galta Ji Temple is probably one of the most intriguing temples we visited throughout our time in India.  While the official name is Galta Ji, most refer to it as Monkey Temple, due to the thousands of monkeys that occupy the grounds. As well as being a tourist hotspot, the temple complex is a sacred pilgrimage site for Hindu devotees. 

Although the monkeys are a key attraction at this temple, what we loved most was the location. Built amidst a mountain pass, natural springs from the mountain replenish the temples 7 holy baths. In these ‘kunds’ as they are known to locals, you will find pilgrims bathing in the sacred water, believed to cleanse away sins and revitalise the body.

It is recommended to visit the temple early If you want to avoid the crowds; however, we actually enjoyed watching all the spiritual ceremonies unfold.  I suggest heading up to the higher levels of the complex where you can observe from above and take it all in. If you need more info, you can check out our guide to Jaipur’s monkey temple here.

Entrance Fee: Free to enter, 50 Rupees camera charge

Explore the Pink City by Foot

Our favourite way to go Sightseeing in Jaipur was to travel on foot. Not only will you cover some of the best places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days, but you’ll get to immerse in the culture.  Jaipur is a fascinating city, and you’re in a land of extraordinary characters.  We loved interacting with the locals, sharing some stories over a chai before moving on to the next stop on our itinerary.

The only advice I do have is to be mindful when taking photos.  Too often we see tourists pushing their cameras into peoples faces without having communicated with them first.  The key is to be respectful and try to suss out the situation.  More often than not, the locals are only too happy to let you take a photo.  And you might find you take a lot more from the interaction than just a picture.

Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal, or the Palace of Winds, is the crown jewel of Jaipur.  Historically, the palace was built in the late 1800s, for female members of the Royal Family to observe the city without being seen.

The remarkable architecture of the complex includes 953 small windows, carved with intricate latticework and resembling the pattern of honeycomb. We for one were taken aback by its majestic appearance, and would, therefore, consider it to be one of the best places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days.

While many pay an entrance fee to explore inside the Hawa Mahal, we decided it was enough to admire from the outside. We would often head to one of the rooftop cafes across the road, where we could enjoy a drink and snap some clean photos.

*Travellers Tip – For an underated sunset spot in Jaipur, head to Tattoo Cafe across the road!  The Hawa Mahal is also one of the best places to visit in Jaipur at night when the entire building is lit up.

Entrance Fee: Tickets inside Hawa Mahal are 50 Rupees per person for Indians and 200 rupees per person for Foreigners.

Brave the Bazaars

Experiencing the delirium of the city bazaars is one of the most exciting things to do in Jaipur.  The tantalising aroma of street food & chai. The burst of colour of traditional clothing and spices. The energy of the locals wheeling and dealing.  In short, walking among them is a show-stopping delight.

If you plan to buy at the bazaars, you will need to master the art of bargaining.  Haggling with the charismatic vendors can be great fun, and you will bag yourself some bargains; however, be sure to haggle sensibly and pay what you think is fair for the item.

If you want to take home some souvenirs, saris, gemstones, rugs, and puppets are all traditional items of Jaipur.  Be warned, it’s easy to get carried away! You can find some of the best markets in Jaipur located around the Hawa Mahal area.

Places to visit in Jaipur in 2 Days

Nahargarh AKA Tiger Fort

Nahargarh Fort is a tourist hotspot Jaipur. Located high in the Aravali mountains, the breathtaking fortress provides an unrivalled view over the bustling city below. The fort is famed for being an architectural wonder, as well as being one of the best sunset spots in Jaipur.

Historically, along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh helped form a defence wall around the old Royal City. The name ‘Nahargarh’ translates to Tiger Fort in English, so I can only assume wild tigers once roamed the same mountains. As you sit atop the walls of the old fort, it’s easy to picture the scene. After all, Jaipur was once a barren desert city.

It has to be said, the only advantage of the pollution in Jaipur is that it makes for an epic sunset. The sun appeared hazy and ethereal as the sky set on fire in pink and orange hues. By this time, people were clambering atop the walls of the fort to get a photo. Security guards patrol the area asking people to come down; however, it doesn’t prevent people from getting a picture at one of the most Insta-worthy locations in Jaipur.

If you visit during the opening hours of 10 am and 6 pm, you can access the attractions inside the fort.  These include a palace, sculpture gallery, and wax museum.  Otherwise, you can explore the perimeter of the fort for sunrise or sunset. See our guide to Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur for more info.

Entrance Fee: 200 Rupees for foreigners, 50 rupees for Indians, discounted rates for students.

Other Places to Visit in Jaipur in 2 Days

While the above itinerary should keep you busy over your 2 Days in Jaipur, you may have some spare time or wish to make some adjustments. With this in mind, here are some other exciting things to do in the city.

Albert Hall Museum

Another hidden gem in Jaipur is the Albert Hall Museum.  Many are unaware that this museum even exists, but if you are a history buff it’s worth adding to your Jaipur itinerary.  The museum houses a collection of historical artifacts, and in true Jaipur style, the architecture is sensational!

Gatore Ki Chatriyan Cenotaphs

Just a short journey outside the center of Jaipur, you’ll find a collection of royal tombs where Jaipur’s maharajas are laid to rest.  While it may be lesser-heard-of site in Jaipur, this serene and peaceful spot is truly worth a visit. The name Gatore comes from the Hindi phrase “Gaye ka Thor” which means “resting place of the departed souls”.

World Trade Park

The World Trade Park shopping centre could not be any further from the traditional architecture of Jaipur; however, you will no doubt be just as impressed by its futuristic design. As well as an abundance of high-end shops, the centre incorporates a cinema and an innovative indoor food street.  If you are spending more than 2 Days in Jaipur, we highly recommend you check it out.

Celebrate Diwali

One of the most significant and magical festivals to be celebrated in India, Diwali is known as the Hindu festival of light.  Held annually during the months of October or November, Jaipur is one of the best cities in the country to celebrate.

We were fortunate enough to be in Jaipur for Diwali and it was an unforgettable experience.  The city comes alive with the festivitie.  Houses, shops, and streets are illuminated in bright lights.  This is to signify ‘light over darkness’ or ‘good over evil’.  Think Christmas, but in India, so it’s a lot more wild!

Jaipur is one of the best places in India to celebrate Diwali.

Best Places to Eat in Jaipur

With so many places to visit in Jaipur in 2 days, you can expect to leave your hotel before sunrise and return after sunset.  To avoid burning out, it pays to eat well and keep hydrated! At the same time, food is a huge part of the Jaipur experience, so check out our favourite restaurants for some of the best food in the city!

Best For Lunch: Tapri the Teahouse $$

For a classy lunch without breaking the bank, we highly recommend this trendy rooftop establishment.  The extensive menu includes a fusion of cuisines, and we couldn’t help but get food envy everytime a new dish came out of the kitchen. Not only that, but the atmosphere and service were second to none.

Best For Sunset: Tattoo Cafe $

Located across the way from Hawa Mahal, this cafe is the perfect spot to escape the bustling streets of Jaipur. While we would enjoy coming here at any time of day, we particularly loved coming here for sunset.  Watching the sun disappear behind one of the most iconic buildings in India was a surreal experience.  And if you hang around until it’s dark, you’ll get to experience the palace illuminated. Oh, and the food and drinks are pretty good too!

Best For Dinner: 25 Degrees East $$

We enjoyed some of the best food of our India trip here, and while it is a little on the pricy side, you won’t regret the momentary splurge. 

Best For Street Food: Anywhere $

Many visitors are anxious about trying street food in India;  however, it’s a huge part of the experience and you should try your best to get on board.  Concerns about getting sick are valid; however, there are steps you can take to avoid the dreaded Delhi belly!  You can find street food stalls all over Jaipur, and it’s the cheapest way to indulge in the delicious cuisuine.

Tips & Advice for Travelling Jaipur

Jaipur is a vibrant, wild, and exciting place to travel. At the same time, it can be overwhelming, confusing, and even sometimes scary. So here are some travel tips and advice that we accumulated during our time in Jaipur. Hopefully, it will help ensure a fun, safe, and stress-free trip of a lifetime.

Best Time to Visit Jaipur

The best time to visit Jaipur is during the Indian Winter, which runs from October to February. During this time you can expect perfect weather for sightseeing – Ie. The temperatures are cooler, and there is very little rain. It’s also the period where many festivals take place in India such as Diwali. If you are sensitive to the heat, you may wish to keep mornings and late afternoons free outdoor activities, as the lunchtime hours get incredibly hot all year round. It’s advisable to avoid Rajasthan altogether during the months of Summer or Monsoon.  

Getting Around in Jaipur

If you’ve got just  2 days in Jaipur, the easiest and cheapest way to get around is by scooter.  The cost is around Rs. 500 for 24hrs; however, the roads of Jaipur can be intimidating for even the most experienced driver.

Another option is to get around on tuk-tuks.  This can be cost-effective if you are in a group, but be sure to haggle as the drivers are opportunists when it comes to tourists.  

There is also a reliable public bus network in place in Jaipur. You can check the city of Jaipur website for more information on bus routes in Jaipur.

Our favourite way to get around Jaipur is by using the Ola Taxi app. Similar to Uber, taxis are ordered directly through the app. Not only can you book single trips, but it’s an affordable way to hire a driver for the entire day!

Getting Around in Jaipur
Tourist Composite Tickets

If you plan on getting around all of the best places to visit in Jaipur in 2 Days, you may want to consider purchasing a tourist composite ticket. For a discounted rate, the tourist composite tickets allows you access to 10 attractions in Jaipur, including Hawa Mahal, Amber Palace, and Nahargarh Fort. Tickets can be purchased online here.  

Dress Code

Wherever you go in India, it is important that you dress appropriately.  It is recommended that female travellers respect the local tradition of covering shoulders and legs from the knee upwards.  Not only is it respectful, but it will help to avoid unwanted attention.

The dress code for men is a little more relaxed; however, it is recommended to avoid revealing vests or tank top.

Safety in Jaipur

The topic regarding safety in Jaipur and India, in general, is as complex as the country itself. Every individual has a different experience, and while there are many horror stories, we can honestly say we encountered nothing overly negative ourselves. By that, I mean we were not the victims of crime, theft, physical/verbal abuse and the like.  

Having said that, there were times when we felt uncomfortable and scared. Sometimes it was warranted, other times, it was not. You see, the biggest issue for us travelling India as a lesbian couple wasn’t even our sexuality, it was our gender. Being a foreign woman in India arouses a lot of attention. And like I said earlier, what we recognise as socially acceptable behaviour is not necessarily the same in Indian culture. For example, staring, taking photos without asking, or invasion of personal space can come across as intimidating, even when it’s not. 

So girls, be prepared to carry yourself confidently and don’t be afraid to say something should anybody cross the line. Unfortunately, there are many reports of women being groped by local men. If you find yourself in this position, it’s best to call him out, as other locals will step in to help you and probably give him a slap while they’re at it.

Otherwise, the biggest threat to tourists is petty theft crimes such as pickpocketing and bag snatching. We suggest keeping your belongings close to you at all times and use a small padlock or compartmental bag to keep your valuables safe. When travelling at night, avoid being alone in parks or dark areas.

Finally, It pays to make yourself aware of the common scams in India, so in turn, you can avoid them.

Travel Insurance

With that, don’t even think about going to Jaipur without travel insurance. Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. If the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you’ll want the best cover money can buy.

For this reason, we always recommend World Nomads for travel insurance. They are affordable, offer a variety of packages and add ons, and allow you to make amendments to your policy while travelling. Say, for example, you go scuba diving or hiking a mountain, World Nomads will amend your plan accordingly. It’s a super handy feature that we’ve used numerous times including the time we trekked to Annapurna Base Camp.

If you need further convincing, read our article on why you need travel insurance. Or get an on-the-spot quote from World Nomads using the form below.

Tripods

Most tourist attractions in India forbid the use of tripods within the grounds.  Expect to be reprimanded by security guards if you attempt to use one.

Alcohol, Drugs, & Parties in Jaipur

If you’re looking to party, Jaipur isn’t the place. You’ll want to get yourself to the likes of Goa, Manali, or Hampi. But if you enjoy a few drinks of an evening time, alcohol is easy to find at many bars and restaurants. Just check in advance so that you’re not disappointed when you go to order. 

The local drug of choice is, of course, Bhang. For those of you who don’t know what Bhang is, it is an edible form of cannabis. You’ll find Bhang shops all over Rajasthan, selling Bhang Lassis – a tasty beverage mixed with milk, sugar, and fruits. Or alternatively bhang cakes or cookies. Bhang forms a big part of ancient Hindu tradition, and they believe it cures many ailments. It produces a similar effect as smoking cannabis; however, it can last longer and also take a lot longer to kick in. If it is your first time experimenting with Bhang, it is worth educating yourself on the effects before partaking.

Social Etiquette in Jaipur

Jaipur is one of the holiest and most socially conservative cities in all of India. It’s important to keep in mind that what might be socially acceptable in your home country, is likely to be viewed entirely different here. Thankfully, most Indians are forgiving toward foreigners to a certain extent; however, to avoid unwanted attention and embarrassment, it’s good to know the dos and don’ts. In which case, I recommend this article regarding social etiquette in India, which includes dress codes, table manners, temple etiquette etc.

At the same time, you’ll likely be surprised by some of the aspects of Indian culture. And in all honestly, you’ll probably be offended from time to time. But again, it’s important to remember that the culture is entirely different from the western world, and embracing the unique Indian culture is all part and parcel of the experience.

Stay Connected in Jaipur

If, like us, you rely on the internet when you travel (let’s face it, who doesn’t anymore), we have the perfect solution. After coming home to too many hefty phone bills and buying countless international sim cards, we were desperate for an affordable solution. 

That’s when we discovered TravelWifi. TravelWifi’s portable pocket wifi allows us to quickly and securely connect when we need it the most. Click the link for more information on coverage, packages, and the latest offers.

Otherwise, you can pick up a local sim card at most major airports. We used Vodaphone and it was reliable throughout our stay. You will need your passport and visa to register for a sim card and it can take up to 48 hours to activate.

  1. A love hate relationship for sure! It’s a place that stressed me out a lot while I was there (and I’ve been to 75 countries), but it’s still intriguing and I wanted to keep exploring. I would definitely recommend someone travel other places in Asia first, but definitely dive into India when you’re ready, and this is a great write up to help guide the way!
