Take awe-inspiring, serenely calm palaces and temples, surround them with a buzzing metropolis where vibrant streets are alive with buzzing motorbikes, incessantly honking buses and scurrying monkeys, drop it all in an arid hill landscape dotted with traditional villages, serve with sizzling temperatures and fiery cuisine, and you have something like Jaipur, a city totally geared towards hosting immersive experiences in a hectic, get-up-and-go culture.
It’s a little like India in a snowglobe. You’ve got all the get-up-and-go attitude of the emerging global powerhouse, as street hawkers and heaving crowds buzz with noise that rises into the hot air with the fragrant odours of street food stalls, and city slickers flock to shiny office blocks.

Complete the picture with a vibrant arts scene and rich culture, and you’re left with Jaipur, a unique city rich with immersive experiences just waiting to be discovered.
