The “Pink City” is the capital of Rajasthan and was built in the 18th century. Jaipur is home to several important forts: Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort — which was never conquered in battle and was considered the strongest of the three – and Nahargarh Fort — the smallest of the three but offers the best views of the lake. Two palaces are also among the city’s landmarks: City Palace and Jal Mahal. Temples, monuments, gardens and museums are also tourist attractions.
Goa mixes in a lovely way its Portuguese past with the Asian present. It’s one of the most important beach destinations in South Asia and welcomes over 400,000 foreign tourists each year. Although the beaches are the main attraction, there are plenty other things to do in Goa.
