This must have guide contains savvy insider knowledge that a traveller craves. The passionately curated guide is designed for the discerning luxury vagabond who wants authenticity in style. The book has eight sections, including an overview of the state with 'must knows' and 'must do's’ and presents the best places to eat, drink, shop, stay, be pampered, get fit and explore.

Author Fiona Caulfield, takes her readers beyond the obvious Jaipur and Rajasthan tourist attractions and unlike mass tourist books, using this guide is like being chaperoned by a good friend. The entries are 'love stories' personally sourced from in-the-know locals including chefs and chaiwallahs, artists and architects, photographers and princesses. Fiona then personally tests every entry, checking that it really is the best experience in its category. Whether it be riding an elephant, assessing a fortune-teller or finding the best rooms, so you can be sure all of the recommendations have met her exacting standards.

Like a book of secrets Love Jaipur, Rajasthan reveals true insider experiences in the city ranging from the best samosa to the inside track on where to buy the world’s finest couture jewellery. The guide also celebrates the artisans and master craftsman who keep Jaipur’s unique craft legacy alive and gives you access to the designers who are ensuring Jaipur’s place in the future, creating superb contemporary craft and modern design.

The best experiences are not obvious. They are hidden in the narrow lanes of the old city where the five-star chef indulges in his favourite street food. They are in the home studios of designers and in the workshops of seventh generation craftsmen. This book is not just about simply getting a sense of Jaipur - it's about digging deep into its heart.

The first edition of Love Jaipur was launched at the Jaipur Literature Festival in 2010 and was the best selling book at the festival. Since then Love Jaipur, Rajasthan has become regarded as THE guide for discerning travellers to Rajasthan.

“These cherishable guides are a gold mine of local know how. I was so impressed. For one thing, it's their appearance: each is hand-bound using old Indian paper making techniques, with a hand-woven, khadi cover and sold in a khadi pouch with a silk trim. Caulfield's local knowledge is compelling, especially her encyclopedic shopping savvy - always handy in India. I'll never shop in India again without her. The loving way she compiled them is a rarity.” Financial Times
