8. Rajasthan, India
India’s royal state Rajasthan is spectacular in any month but in January, it’s not only pleasantly warm but also promises a crowd-free, much cheaper vacation. Palaces are not jam-packed of tourists and you can get alluring deals in hotels. Golden-hued Jaisalmer, Pink city Jaipur, romantic Udaipur or the Blue City of Jodhpur, every gem in Rajasthan’s crown offers more than you can handle.
Rajasthan hosts a lesser number of tourists in the beginning of the year, so you can have the desert to yourself, ride camels, explore palaces from every nook and corner and wander about the alleys of these glorious Indian cities.
