6 Colourful Destinations Around the World You Need Visit Immediately

  1. Jodhpur, India

Nestled in Rajasthan, lies the famous blue city of India, Jodhpur.  You can grab the best view of the highlighted blue city from the fort above.  Thousands of tourists’ flock here to get a glimpse of the gorgeous blue buildings.  The reason behind the blue?  It is said they are painted blue because the locals believe this keeps away the insects, which over the years have eaten through walls of the buildings.  It is also believed that the houses that are painted blue are those of the Brahman caste, the highest of the Hindu caste.  British Airways offer flights straight from London into India making it easy to visit this beautiful city!

 

 

  1. Jaipur, India

Jaipur is another incredibly colourful city in India but instead of blue, this city is called the pink city.  When Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales came to visit in 1876, the entire city was painted pink for their arrival.  In India pink is the colour of hospitality, so to welcome the new guests to Jaipur the old city was painted pink. Ever since then the city has kept the theme of pink and you can still see the pink coloured buildings within the old city walls today.

  1. Chefchaouen, Morocco

The blue city of Chefchaouen, located just 3 hours’ drive from the ancient city of Fes, has become hugely popular in the last few years.  This city has been painted bright blue since 1492 by the Jewish community who have a tradition of painting their buildings blue.  Ever since then the town has kept that tradition and been painted the brightest and most beautiful shade of blue you can imagine.

 

 

  1. Júzcar, Spain

This is another entirely blue town instead this one is located in Spain.  Júzcar was painted by Sony Pictures to promote the new Smurfs movie, and since then thousands of tourists flocked to see this colourful town, which is home to only 250 people.  Since the movie came out, there have been disputes between Sony and the village as tourism drove this little place to be a hot tourist destination by using its colour and reference of the Smurfs to their full advantage.

  1. Lavender fields, Provence, France

From mid-June until mid-August the fields of Provence, France light up a stunning purple colour as the lavender blooms.  If you want to miss the mass crowds of European families, then I recommend you visit before mid-July when most of the children go on holiday.  Also, get up early or visit late in the day to get the perfect photograph if that’s what you’re there for!

  1. Rotorua, New Zealand

One of my favourite places on earth is Rotorua located in my home country, New Zealand.  The Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is lathered in assorted colours.  Rotorua is a geothermal playground and the most active volcanic place in New Zealand.  In the park, you can see colourful mud pools and even a geyser.  The pools colours range from bright lime green, bright oranges, and blues, nearly every colour of the rainbow!  Rotorua is one of the most colourful places on earth and what makes it so interesting is that this is natural, no paint required!

    Those photos are beautiful. I really want to go to Cinque Terre with the gorgeous colourful houses. The lavender fields of Provence must be amazing to see and smell!

    What a lovely idea for an article. The only one I have been to of those is Rotorua in New Zealand. Those lavender fields in Provence are gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to visit Jaipur too. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    Gorgeous locations and I haven’t been to any of these spectacular locations, but I’ve been close in Morocco, the blue city is stunning – saw something similar in Rabat, the capital. You picked some real gems here.

    I’m definitely in love with vibrant colors and I appreciated your suggestions! I knew Chefchaouen, the lavender fields in Provence and Jaipur but I’d love to see Jodhpur with my eyes, it looks pretty!

    All the places look awesome Anita. I would add Granada, Nicaragua to this list, as a multi color town. Not dominated by any one color but goodness the place has so many vivid, eye-popping, fascinating coloring through most of the buildings, from homes to places of commerce. Like a rainbow when you walk down the street.

    Chefchaouen is one of the places I intend to visit one day. I also recommend Tomita Farm in Hokkaido, Japan for colorful flower fields.

    The lavender fields of Provence are just incredible. I’d go back anytime. India has long been on my bucket list and Jaipur looks so pretty! I love how the color pink means hospitality. What a fun fact, but also a great welcome “message” to visitors who understand the significance.

    What a great idea for a blog post! I love the forts in India, and of course, the blue buildings of Morocco and well known. The lavender fields must be really spectacular in real life, as well as Rotorua in NZ. Hope to visit all someday!

    I love the theme of this post! You’ve definitely chosen some gorgeous, colorful sites! I’m happy to see that 1/3 are in India since I’m going there in March! I wish I wasn’t allergic to lavender, because those lavender fields look magical!

    Those lavender fields look amazing! The older I get, the more of a flower nut I am becoming. Thanks for sharing this colorful post.
