The Pink city, Rajasthan s capital lures travelers and charms them with majestic forts, palaces and bustling bazaars. However many visitors find their stay in Jaipur limited to a mad dash about the tourist sights before continuing on a whistle-stop tour of Rajasthan. Author Fiona Caulfield believes that Jaipur is a destination in and of itself that offers travellers rich rewards if the city is explored more fully . She believes that Rajathan's capital needed a stylish and authentic guide that helps the time-poor traveler discover the absolute best experiences in the city ranging from the best chai wallah to the inside track on where to buy the world s finest couture jewellery. Giles Tillotson, acclaimed author of Jaipur Nama opens the book with an insightful essay, where he shares new perspectives on the city.

As founder of Love Travel Guides, Fiona believes that falling in love with a city is just as exciting as falling in love with a person. Your senses become more engaged and you simply feel more alive, she says. The simplest criteria for inclusion in the guide was 'does this place help you fall in love with this city?' If yes, then it was in; if no then, it was out. Simple. Love Jaipur, Rajasthan, celebrates Indian luxury and pays homage to India s rich craft legacy being itself completely handmade in India. Love Jaipur, Rajasthan is printed on paper that is handmade in Jaipur and handcrafted with care by local fashion designers and crafts people.
