Anyone looking for an interesting place to visit on their holidays to India could try the Blue City of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, one travel writer has suggested.

In an article for the Telegraph, Tim Jepson said that although it is not known why all the locals began to paint their houses blue, “the effect is sublime” and would certainly make an interesting talking point in the holiday snaps.

He pointed out that there is also plenty to do in the city, with the Mehrangarh fortress and the Umaid Bhawan Palace – where Elizabeth Hurley was married – being particular highlights.

In addition, savvy travellers could look out for a bargain at the destination’s numerous textile and furniture shops, or use the city as a portal to the Thar Desert, Mr Jepson suggested.

Anyone taking holidays to India soon should be aware that the country is malarious and as such, the appropriate vaccinations must be sought before the trip.
