TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palms Jaipur
Hotel Palms is a fairly modern hotel there were a few alterations taking place during our stay, but staff were helpful and rooms comfortable and clean. The terrace designated for lunch and breakfast lacked shade but it did overlook some nice gardens. The location was within walking distance to markets etc.

Salem thinks I exaggerate, but I thought it was almost on par with a Broadway theater! OK, that is probably a bit of an overstatement, but if it were in the US, it would certianly be a live performance theater, not film. ...
today we set off on a 6 hour minibus journey to Jaipur but not before stopping off at India gate,a vast memorial arch for the soldiers of the imperial army that fell in the first world and third afghan wars. The drive took us through fertile plains until we started a slow climb into Rajasthan. Occasional large rocky outcrops appeared in the mist,the fields became smaller and there were more wooded areas including palm trees. We started seeing monkeys again gathered near the fruit ...
... closing time. The Royalty was "in" so their flag was flying and a bunch of the palace was cordoned off. The museum was interesting. Beautiful clothing (a sari uses 5-6 metres of fabric) and the usual selection of daggers/swords/guns. Some camel-guns looked like about 1.500 calibre, with the ramrod also acting as a monopod. I wasn't allowed to take photos :-(.
Kids flying kites everywhere (including downtown), ...
