To coincide with the release of new British movie, the SECOND Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, TOTAL HOLIDAY OPTIONS has put together this new and exciting private journey that not only takes in some of the sites of this much-talked about film, but also has you staying at locations where the movie was shot based on the availability of the hotels. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is in fact Rawla Khempur, a charming rural palace hotel situated about an hour to the north of Udaipur. Combining this with more famous sites in Delhi, Agra; including the Taj Mahal, Knota castle which featured as Viceroy, Jaipur to explore monuments and bazaar, Jodhpur where Sonny’s marriage took place and Udaipur will give you a great blend of both the mainstream and the offbeat, in one of India’s most colourful locations.
