Udaipur is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Hence there are tons and tons of articles written about the city to help you plan your travel. So while we were planning our trip, even I went through all these blogs to gather information
However, there were a few things that I discovered as I explored the city myself. So let me walk you through these lesser-known facts about Udaipur to help you plan your travel better, whenever that happens
- Narrow-Narrow extremely Narrow lanes. To my surprise, the entire city is connected through these tight lanes as opposed to having usual city roads. Therefore don’t even think about traveling around in a four-wheeler. Rent a bike, take an auto or walk around but just don’t opt for a car.
- Udaipur is also known as the city of lakes and rightly so the major attraction of the town is its beautiful lakes. Therefore if you want to make most of your stay then definitely choose a property with a lake view. Now you don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket for that. There are many hostels and Airbnb offering lake view accommodation. So hunt them down and wake up with the most spectacular view ever.
- Udaipur is known for its luxurious feasts. But trust me you ought to try the smaller authentic Rajasthani restaurants. They generally have a buffet system with a price of somewhere around 400 per person. Trust me its great value for money and in all likelihood will offer you a more authentic experience than those pompous five stars
- Now since there are lakes, there definitely will also be boat rides. Yes, there are and you must take one if not many. But please remember that days in Udaipur, like most places in Rajasthan, are extremely hot. We literally got burnt to death on a February afternoon while we wore thick jackets during the evenings. So if you want to make the most of this ride, then plan your boat ride around the sunset
- And finally, try keeping a minimum of three days for a trip to Udaipur. Trust me there is a lot to see and every bit is worth it. The city palace itself is spectacular and more massive than any other that I have been to. So definitely come and travel with substantial time on hand otherwise you won’t be doing justice to this rather exorbitantly priced city
