4) Jodhpur, India
One of the many gems in Asia, India boasts some of the most alluring places in the world that you should explore! While others are awed by the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra, not many know about Jodhpur, also known as The Blue City of India.
In order to catch a better glimpse of the blue scene, don’t be afraid to delve further into the older quarters of Jodhpur. Right here is where you’ll find a sea of blue houses that are painted under the orders of the city’s founder, Rao Jodha. While it is still uncertain as to why blue was chosen, some believe it to be because of its priestly links with the Brahmins, a superior class in the Indian caste system. Whatever the reason, it has created a charming view that all would enjoy. Go to Mehrangarh Fort built on a 125m tall hill for the best overview of the city. Remember to wear darker coloured clothing and pair it with this Time’s Arrow Micro Helene Shoulder Bag to capture a picture deserving of its appellation.
