Blue Guide India
The Only Printed Guide You Will Need
By Amazon Customer
This is the standard for Indian guide books. It doesn’t cover the hotels and hostels in any kind of detail, but it doesn’t need to, you can find that information online. It does cover the cultural attractions in exquisite detail. On several occasions I found the guides I used almost parroting what was in this book. I spent six weeks in South India and referred to this book on an almost daily basis. It is thick and bulky, but I appreciated having it in paper format so I could refer to it even if I had problems recharging my devices. It could use some updating for some of the attractions in terms of admission details, etc, but still well worth purchasing.
