Udaipur is a great place, with beautiful lakes and wonderful people. I was specially attracted by Chittorgarh, and Haldighati, about which I have read so much from my early childhood, and always wanted to visit.
My wife is a postgraduate in History, and I, a scientist by profession have always been charmed by the history of Rajasthan. I am now 60 +,have been in a number of places in India and abroad I am glad I could at last visit Rajasthan and Udaipur in particular.
Udaipur is a nice city of Rajasthan. You need 2 days stay here to cover the main city, rest of your extra days can be utilied to visit nearby places like Shreenathji, Chittorgarh, Kumbhalgarh, Mt.
Abu etc. Mostly days are hot, but morning & evenings are pleasant. I am happy with my tour plan, which was self made. I was in Udaipur for 3 nights in 3 different hotels, Hotel Ram Pratap was at the top amongst all 3, I tried.
It is a wonderful historic city with lots of cultural and historic attractions around, rich in fold music & dance, history, palaces, folk arts and crafts and beautiful lakes.
Compared to other Indian cities it is still small and unspoilt without much pollution, crowding or other problems. It has retained its old charm of a Rajasthani small city with long traditions and proud history. Absolutely aplace to visit and revisit. It has world class hotels and spas, very relaxing and enjoyable.
Be prepared for steep hills and steps- great shopping in the bazaars- the city palace is tout free so a very relaxing time can be spent drinking coffee and viewing the lake.
We enjoyed the boat ride
Udaipur was one of the nicer cities we visited in our trip to India. It's far less cluttered than Delhi and Jaipur, air is better (almost clean) and the people are nice.
I recommend finding accommodation right at the center, next to one of the lakes. There are great hotels there, within walking distance to main attractions. There are great things to do in the day and at night and it's good to be near them. Food is also good at many local restaurants in the center. We visited at the fall, which made everything enjoyable. I suspect that summer temperatures can be very high, making travel difficult.
Udaipur was definitely the highlight of my recent trip around Rajasthan. The minute I arrived at the railway station, I felt the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The area by the lake, especially the view of the Lake Palace at sunset, is ridiculously beautiful. Lots to see, I didn't even get around to the City Palace museum, preferring to get happily lost in the maze of tiny, fascinating streets.
It is one city that you should include in your trip to this part of India. The lake and the beautiful hotels in and around it would make your trip worthwhile.
There is also a lot of local handicrafts within easy reach in shops nearby.
It is one of the best cities of Rajasthan. It is situated on bank of lakes Pichola, Fatehsagar etc. you can go for visit from late july till november.
It is famous for valour of rajput king Maharana Pratap.
Udaipur has to be one of the great attactions in Rajahstan - and there are many. The Grand Palace, the Lake, the old city and food are just fantastic.
Highly recommended, but stay near the Lake to make the most of it.
It is one of my favorite cities in India. Udaipur is an easy town to get around, even if you do get lost in the narrow inner lanes of the old city.
People are friendly and helpful. If you get away from the frenetic shopping around the City Palace, there are deals to be had. Weather is lovely except for May, June, July.
Small city easy to visit walking around, nice and relaxing view of the lake. Many shop of handcraft good are available with good quality products.
It was the most beautifull city we've visited in India. Very clean, romantic. I would really recommend it to everybody visiting this area.
Udaipur is a relief after places like Agra and Delhi. It's laidback, beautiful to look at and enchanting to wander around aimlessly.
There is enough active things to do (hiking, Horseriding, bike riding) that you can mix in with any sightseeing to avoid the monotony that I find of the latter alone.
It is a nice city to visit. It has a nice lake and the palace it is worth to visit. It is more organized than other places in India
Nice place for tourist and some site seeing ! enjoy your holidays for 2 night 3 days & carry on to chittorgarh ! keep it relaxed !
Udaipur is truely said to be "city of lake" and it has very panaromic view . although being in Rajasthan it has very green belt.
and only hill station of Rajasthan is Mount Abu which is just 2.5 hrs away from udaipur.
This city is full of lakes and old forts City Palace is the place you must go Some lake view restaurant you also can't miss
Best real palace no doubt! Lake superb. Must eat at Jagmandir Island restaurant. Great value even better venue and senic!
Beautiful city with great history and culture and good entertainment and food Peaceful yet not boring; Friendly people;
Udaipur is a Royal city, where romance is in the air. The lakes of the city provide a serene environment for relaxation.
Fantastic holiday destination as the place is naturally beautiful with lot of historical importance to Indian history.
You will start loving the place as soon as you arrive.
visit the cafes for cheap and cheerful food, city palace is a great landmark but the inside leaves much to be desired.
My experience is that Udaipur has lost its charm. The autorikshaw's run without meter and want an exhorbitant amount.
The city palace which is the primary tourist place is nothing great! There is nothing to see in Udaipur. Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Jaisamand, Jaipur are better than Udaipur.
Best place baadi lake. Best place for lunch and dinner Ambrai. Best Local dish Laal Maas served at Jaiwana Haveli.
Its the place where you should just relax and take it easy. Worst time to visit is from April to Sep. Best time is Oct Nov and Feb. Its very hot during summers and not advised to be there Overall its a lovely romantic place
Based around the lake, and fairly small, Udaipur is much more relaxed and peaceful than many places in Rajasthan.
There are some great places by the water to sit and relax, eat a slow lunch, and have a couple of drinks. India generally is still getting to grips with tourism, but here they seem more experienced than many places in catering to the needs of foreign travellers. The settings by the lake are stunning, and this would make a wonderful location for a honeymoon or a romantic get-away.
I think the town can be cleaned up and that would raise the opportunity to have more tourists stay longer.
Because you can include that in the tour then.
Udaipur is a great place to spend a few days relaxing with a bit of sightseeing and shopping thrown in.
A wonderful city with it all from palaces, to lakes, to Shilpgram ethnic park; to gardens with a zoo.
Very cute city. Surprisingly polluted though, because so much motorbikes at the main tourist street.
