Be inspired by the beautiful cinematography of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and jet off to India with the country's premiere airline, Jet Airways, to discover Jaipur and Udaipur where the movie was set and shot.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which hits UK cinemas this week (24th February ), follows a group of British retirees played by top British cast including Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson who decide to "outsource" their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India. Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure, they arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self.Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined, they are changed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past.

From £659 (including taxes and surcharges) per person, you could be following in the footsteps of The Best Exotic Marigold cast to experience Jaipur for yourself. Jet Airways flies to Jaipur via Mumbai and Delhi.

The film adaptation of Yann Matel's bestseller Life of Pi directed by award winning Ang Lee is also being filmed in India and is  anticipated to beautifully showcase Kerala and Pondicherry. The movie is due to be released at the end of the year.
