Jaipur shopping tips
Keen bargain hunters will enjoy surfing the markets and bazaars for the ultimate hidden gems. It is often advisable to trawl the markets in the morning and the evening, out of the heat of the midday sun. High-end brands and name products can be found in the malls and it is vital to keep bartering in perspective and only haggle down to a price that you are happy to pay rather than getting caught up in the banter and demanding an unfair discount.
