Jaipur...where 'Pink' is the royal colour

From Uttar Pradesh, let's take you towards Rajasthan, a state steeped in heritage and culture. Jaipur does soak up the summer heat massively, but the city is much more exciting and interesting than imagined. Before moving around the 'Pink City', you need a luxurious stay at one of the elegant hotels. Jaipur has everything you need - magnificent palaces, glorious forts, heritage hotels and an engrossing past.

With tickets to Delhi, if you desire to travel back in time, this is the city that lives up to the expectations of every kind of traveller. Walk down the lanes where the kings and queens strode once.

Shimla...the queen of the hills
Well, let's move towards the coolness of the hills in Himachal Pradesh. Shimla is known as the summer capital since the British Raj in India and it's an all-time favourite not only for international tourists, but for the locals also. Many Delhites flock towards the misty atmosphere of Shimla mostly during the summer holidays.

If you crave snowfalls, December to February are the best months to encounter a whiteout. Being an old, charming city, it has the touch of an European town, especially the with the design of the Christ Church Shimla. Walking down the Mall Road is extremely rewarding. Right from tiny cafes and aromatic restaurants to Lakkar Baazar, the market for wooden articles, you'll fall in love with this lovely hill station.
