Travel has always been a huge passion both before kids and also now we have kids . Travelling with kids now brings a whole new dimension to travel . Seeing the world through our little ones eyes is one of the most rewarding experiences.
Our stop in India was 90 % work so our tourist tips will be limited however we did mange to fit a little site seeing in while we spent the week in India . We travelled with both our boys one aged 6 and one who turned 4 the day before we left- so our travel tips are relevant to these age groups.
Hopefully we inspire you to take the adventure with your kids - enjoy !
Places to stay :
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza : New Delhi Rohini we cannot recommend this place enough . The selection for breakfast was great . The rooms spacious and very comfortable.
Places to eat :
Due to our tight timescale we ate mostly with our suppliers families and within our hotel due to tired kids from a full day of activities .
We had a driver which we strongly recommend . We found this a great way to get around with kids and within a tight time frame which we had . But be prepared for traffic and lots of it . Short distances can take hours - but the country side viewing and animal spotting ( camels, monkeys , elephants ) makes driving in India an exciting adventure for the little and big kids.
Place to visit :
Delhi - we had a city tour with our driver in which we where lucky to have a taste of the sights . Our time in Delhi was super limited and with many road closures due to President Obama visiting it made it tricky getting from place to place .
We visited the India gate and Chandni Chowk.
Jaipur - So many exciting things to do and visit in Jaipur . One of the Highlights for us was the Amber fort . We had an elephant ride up to the fort with the Kids and they loved it! - It was a real highlight. The kids loved exploring the Fort the small passage ways and stair cases in the fort was a big adventure of hide and seek . The kids also got to see monkeys and a snake charmer which was high on their list to do and see why we visited India .
