Jodhpur is a fairly good representation of these qualities
Jodhpur isn't nearly as well laid out as Jaipur is. Winding and narrow streets and an absence of street signs can make navigation difficult for the outsider. That is why we recommend that you take a guide or a local person along on your in-Blue City Trips.
