Rajasthan is a colourful melange of magnificent forts, stunning palaces, diverse cultures, delectable cuisines and most of all warm people. Be it the red sands, the blue cities, pink palaces or the golden sunsets, only in Rajasthan, you’ll find every colour in nature’s huge canvas. That is why when I decided to do a solo trip; I wanted to visit this very place where music, art and dance are woven into every inch of its sand.
I started my first stint with the city of lakes, Udaipur. Known as “Venice of the east”, this city truly brings out the royalty and richness of yesteryear’s Kingdom. Udaipur has a romance of setting unmatched in Rajasthan and unarguably in all India. This city casts a magic spell on people through its grandeur setting, tranquil boat ride on the lake pichola, the lively arts scene and the bustling bazaar.
My stay in Udaipur was only for one and half days and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I had taken a place called “Greco House” very close to the palace; this made it so easy that all the major attractions were just a stone’s throw away. The hotel had a beautiful roof top restaurant overlooking the palace on one side and lake pichola on the other side. The view of the lit up palace from the rooftop was breath-taking. I spent my night just looking at the richness of the palace from here. Best part is the people who run this place are very friendly and caring. They had even given a blanket to save myself from the spine chilling cold weather. (Cons of visiting the place during winter) Good food, a warm blanket and this view with my playlist on headphones! What more could I ask for!
