If you are one of those special people who feel that a weekend without shopping is no weekend at all, then you just cannot miss visiting the many markets of Jaipur on your day tour. This cultural capital is the capital of mind-blowing shopping.
Shopaholics will have a hard time keeping a tab on their purse strings, as temptation is just about everywhere. Just head down to Old Jaipur and shop for clothes, home décor, jewellery, footwear and all types of accessories.
Shop for Rajasthani textiles, hand-printed, block-printed and Tie-and-dye clothing, and jootis (traditional Rajasthani footwear) at Bapu Bazaar. Pick up the perfect accessories for your recent purchases from Tripolia Bazaar (lac bangles and trinkets) and Johari Bazaar (famous for gold and silver jewellery with precious gemstones).
For ready-to-wear clothing including beautiful lehengas, suits and sarees, head to Nehru Bazaar; here you can get almost everything - jewellery, trinkets, bags and shoes to match your new wardrobe and much more. Get beautiful carpets for your living room, marble artefacts to brighten up your study or bedroom, and Jaipuri light-weight quilts and jackets for chilly evenings. You can get all of these in any of the markets mentioned here.
For ready-to-wear, without the bargaining hassle, head to one of the Malls in New Jaipur; Gaurav Tower is a popular one. Have fun shopping! And, in case, you are worried about extra baggage, you can always get your products shipped to your home address for no extra charge. Just make sure that you are shopping at a reputed shop to avoid being scammed.
