Rajasthan holidays are like tumbling into a fairytale book. Tigers rule the wilderness and epic fortresses guard a blushing terracotta-pink city, where you can just as easily spot peacocks wandering through gardens, an elephant stuck in a traffic jam or a troop of monkeys leaping between rooftops. Queen Elizabeth II graces the guestbooks of the state’s royal residences, most of which are now hotels that would blow away the most seasoned five-star hotel guests.
Most visitors take a whistle-stop tour that only touches a tiny part of Rajasthan as part of the Golden Triangle – the first-timers’ holy grail combination of Delhi, Agra for the Taj Mahal and Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital. Beyond Jaipur, there are spectacular jewels strewn all over India’s largest state. Check in to a Bond villain lair-style floating palace; watch the amber glow radiate from a fort built by the same Mughal Emperor who built the Taj Mahal; and get a glimpse of the notoriously secretive leopard at a butler-serviced camp in the wilds of India.
