Known as the "Pink City" because of the color of the stone used for many of its notable structures, Jaipur draws visitors with its chaotic street life and a slew of colorful bazaars selling everything from handmade pottery to tie-dye scarves.
Kids will enjoy Jantar Mantar - Jaipur and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ele Experience Farm and Balloon Rides. There's more to do: take an in-depth tour of City Palace of Jaipur and look for gifts at Fair Deal Textile.

Mahabalipuram — 5 nights

Once an important sea port city in the ancient Pallava kingdom, Mahabalipuram today draws in visitors with UNESCO-listed monuments and temples carved out of rock during the 7th and 8th centuries CE. The structures showcase the decoration and form of early Dravidian architecture, and their distinctive designs, striking coloration, and scale still create an evocative atmosphere when studied closely and when seen as a whole.
Do some cultural sightseeing at India Seashell Museum and Monuments at Mahabalipuram. Attractions like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and DakshinaChitra Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Covelong Beach in Covelong (about 34 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shore Temple, stop by Apollo Books, Head underground at Trimurti Cave, and stroll through Wide Beach.
