Rich in Age & Rich in Culture By Hannah Palmer

India’s home of culture, Jaipur, has become the perfect destination for middle to senior aged travellers as the city is abuzz with life and filled with colour and vibrancy.

The capital city of Rajasthan provides everything you would expect from the country’s tenth largest city with heritage-listed monuments to tuk-tuks swerving through streets to hand-made jewellery and textiles.

Jaipur provides a taste of everything for middle to senior aged tourists, whether they are (eat, pray, love)ing or discovering the country in curiosity.

Local tour guide, Devendra Singh Rathore, says many middle to senior aged tourists are drawn to this beautiful part of north-western India.

“India is a country of rich culture and heritage therefore tourists come to see the architecture and the beautiful forts, palaces and monuments,” Mr Singh Rathore said.

“The city of Jaipur does not cater to all ages as younger travellers prefer cities with evening life and bars, so the cultural aspects are more appealing to senior citizens and middle-aged tourists,” he said.

Phoebe Perkins, a senior-aged tourist currently travelling through Jaipur, decided to experience these cultural experiences and explore the world after her husband died two years ago.

She knew India would be the perfect place for this.

“I wanted to have an adventure and I hadn’t been to India before so here I am,” Ms Perkins said.

“Jaipur is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen,” she said.

“I didn’t know much about it beforehand, so I’m glad to have experienced such a beautiful place at my age.”
