What does Jaipur have in common with Paris, New York and London? Well, they all feature in this comprehensive list of 50 most beautiful cities in the world. Compiled by Flight Network — a travel agency owned and operated in Canada — the list was charted in consultation with some of the world’s top travel professionals, including travel writers, bloggers and agencies.
The Indian city of Jaipur, also popularly known as the Pink City, has been ranked 48th on the list, above cities like Beijing in China and Athens in Greece.
Jaipur, with its many forts and palaces, all immaculately maintained, draws tourists from all corners of the world. International travellers consider the city as one of the most stunning destinations in India. While there are many interesting places within the 18th-century city, those popularly visited are the Amber Palace, the Palace of the Winds or the Hawa Mahal, and the City Palace.
