Living in Jaipur

The vibrant buzz of Jaipur is something to behold. As is typical of many Indian cities, the capital of India's Rajasthan state is rich in heat, colors, sounds, smells and tastes; it is a city for all the senses. As an expat living in Jaipur, you'll undoubtedly hear the city referred to as the "Pink City" at one point or another, an allusion to the pink stone used to build the city and many of its most famous monuments. Of these there are many, and expatriates in Jaipur have their work cut out just taking in the city's vast array of beautiful monuments, landmarks and main sights. The central Hawa Mahal Palace is a good place to start, and the nearby Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory is a truly extraordinary pleasure garden built for the epicurean Prince Jai Singh II, who founded the city in the early 1700s and after whom it is named. Expats living in Jaipur will be very unlikely to get around to seeing the whole array of other cultural points of interest and sites of architectural beauty in the city – but you can certainly enjoy trying.

Moving to Jaipur

The city is well connected to other regional centers by road and rail, with an array of intercity buses and coaches, and the old British railway line being well worth a trip for the experience alone – the romantic old trains, tea-sellers and beautiful arid landscape are not soon forgotten. Expats moving to Jaipur can also fly into the nearby Jaipur Airport, which serves a number of destinations domestically and internationally. Getting about the city is also about to get a lot easier, as the newly build Jaipur Metro is scheduled to open in mid-2014. Expatriates moving to Jaipur can get plenty more general information and advice on expatriation in the Expat Magazine, a comprehensive collection of articles on the InterNations website. We cover topics ranging from cross-cultural communication to expat finance and insurance, and we've also got a number of articles written by our InterNations members which are enjoyable and insightful to read.

Working in Jaipur

The city is a large one, with a population of just over three million people, and a burgeoning local economy of both traditional industries – its jewellery, gold and handicraft exports are well regarded throughout the region – and modern ones. As an expatriate working in Jaipur, you'll have to adapt to the city's incredible vibrancy and hot arid climate. It takes some getting used to, but expats in Jaipur and other Indian cities often find that after India, everywhere else seems a little 'slow'. This is particularly true for Jaipur, with its beautiful street shops (which generally trade half-inside, half-on-the-pavement) and its juxtaposition of a richly evident history with a bustling modern atmosphere. Expatriates working in Jaipur can get in touch with other global minds using the private communications and discussion groups on the InterNations website to organize meet-ups, socialize and find the city's international community.
