How to Get There

Hi guys, I'd like to share about my experience in India. India is not about Taj Mahal, because beside Delhi and Agra, Jaipur is one of must visit city in India. For reach Jaipur, you can train from Delhi which need 6 hours trip. FYI, Jaipur is one of the most crowded city in India but they have so many interesting places for visit. From Jaipur Station, you can take bus to Amer Fort with fare about RS10.
