Jaipur is one of the most beautiful cities in India. From the historical landmarks to the breathtaking nature, you will certainly enjoy your stay here. But, if you’re traveling from New Delhi for example, you should know that the journey itself will last up to 6 hours by car. 

Although there are many interesting stops on the way, it is still a long car journey which can be exhausting even when you’re traveling with your friends. This is why we have made a list with some ideas for games you can play and different activities for your long car ride.

Listen to an Audiobook

Listening to audiobooks is another way to be entertained for a longer period of time. Audible is one of the most popular websites for audiobooks, where you will find podcasts, audiobooks and radio plays.                A good idea is to pick something that you haven’t read before, as you can be traveling alone or as a group, and still have a lot of fun when you’re experiencing the title for the first time. It will also give you another topic to discuss on your trip and you won’t get bored for a while.

Play Games Online

Another good choice is to play online games. You don’t need anything more than your smartphone or a tablet that has an internet connection and you can download most of your favorite games on your device. There are also multiplayer games you can play as a group, like AdventureQuest, Critical Ops, Crossy Road and more. 

For anyone that enjoys playing games of chance, there are also a lot of online casino sites where you can play for fun or for real money. You can pick everything from table games like roulette, baccarat, craps to slot games in numerous variants. Gambling on online casino sites is also available in India.

In fact, playing casino games online has become more popular in recent years with 80% of the population gambling at least once a year. The main advantage of playing in an online casino in India, is that you will be able to play in Indian rupees and you’ll also find Indian games like Teen Patti, Andar Bahar among many others.

Record the Trip

This is probably one of the most constructive tips, while everyone might be taking selfies or photos for social media posts. You can film a video, make a photo album with a similar theme like your feet in each location or stop, photo of every souvenir you have bought so far, photos with every person you’ve met on your ride, etc. 

It will be a bit different than posting everything on social media sites, as you might be self-conscious about some photos and videos, so you pick and choose what to capture. But, when you’re making a project that you can actually share with future generations like a scrapbook from your trip, you might have a different perspective and find yourself capturing different moments from the journey.   

Prepare for Your Stay

Jaipur is a wonderful city that you’d love to visit again. But, when you’re staying in the city for the first time it’s also important to make any last-minute preparations and check different sights, shopping destinations and landmarks you would like to visit or book a guided tour of the city. 

You can take a walking tour with a local guide or book a professional historical guided tour, for example.

If you’re traveling with your partner you can check out different romantic restaurants in Jaipur and make dinner reservations. For anyone that is traveling alone, we recommend visiting famous street-food places where you will find traditional dishes and snacks.
