A Word of Caution for Air Travellers:

If anything in the shopping list includes a sharp object or souvenirs which can be objectionable, take a look at the rules as defined by your air carrier. Also, if it includes a bulky item which adds to the number of bags you check-in, make sure you are allowed to check-in the number of bags you are carrying. Be it Air India, Indigo or Jet Airways check in, doing a check-in before leaving the airport will help you understand the baggage rules of your flight and allow you to make necessary changes to the size or numbers of bags you intend to check-in if needed before you reach the airport.

Whether you like something contemporary, traditional or a blend of both, there’s something for everyone in Jaipur. Take a break and head to some of the most traditional markets of India. From Bapu Bazaar to the small alleys of the city, it’s truly a shopper’s delight!
