Things you gotta know
1)Summers can be harshly hot and dry in Jaipur, hence light clothes made of cotton or linen is highly recommended. A sun hat and an umbrella are advisable. You must carry a high factor sun block and sunscreen lotion. A good pair of sunglasses are a must.
2)At daytime in summers it is recommended that one sticks to long pants/trousers or skirts than shorts. The sun is very harsh and even 15 minutes in the open can cause serious sun damage.
3)Please make sure you carry your medicines. The food is spicy for the non- asian palate and may cause stomach infections or acidity. Please carry antacids and digestive pills.
4)Also energy tablets or drinks could be of a huge use because the sun completely dehydrates your body so while sightseeing you may need these. If you suffer from asthma or sinus please carry your medicines, sometimes there are dust storms and it may cause issues for people suffering from these conditions.
5)Photographs should only be taken of places where they are permitted and if you wish to take a photograph of a local person you must get their permission first.
6)Stay close to MI Road or Pink City for easier sightseeing. Some budget hotels are available in Bani Park near the station which are not too far away.
