Many travellers to North India confine themselves to the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. All these are worth visiting, but expanding your trip into Rajasthan — or for the adventurous, starting there — will not disappoint.

Nowhere in India is more colourful. From the blue cities of Jaisalmer and Jodhpur to the Amber Fort of Jaipur, Rajasthan’s cities — and historical textiles — have inspired designers and creatives across the world. Author Rudyard Kipling lived in Bundi for a time, providing inspiration for Kim and the Jungle Book.

So come to Rajasthan and admire its battle-scarred forts made of sandstone and marble, its hardy desert villages, and most of all, its people.
