I booked Airbnb with retd. Colonel and his wife, I wanted the home like space as I was going to spend most of the time working and being it was a long stay I need company of people around.
This turned out to be the best stay of my life, it was like I am visiting my own uncle aunty house. They treated me like family, took me along to their farmhouse, aunty herself booked food for the guest and they were also there to talk to all the topics in the world. They helped with going around, shopping, got the best driver as I was travelling alone(I just love when I get pampered).
The more you travel, the more stories you have to share. Ture with every journey you meet new people, see new culture, new experiences.
My travel started with the hiccups, the car got trouble twice on the way to Nagpur to catch flight. I boarded bus, got back to me car and then on second breakdown took auto and reached the airport just on time. And thankfully the flight was delayed so I could .
The day started with hiccups but ended with sweet gesture from my host, who came to pick me up from the airport bus stand. The Udaipur airport is 22km from the city, there is a/c shuttle that runs at the flight timings. The last drop is the center of city, from where you can get auto/cabs to get to your hotels. For me, my host came himself to take me home.
If you plan to stay in old city, check with your hotel if they have parking and most of the old havelis can be accessed only via tuktuk.
I planned to explore the city at slow pace covering places in evening post I log out and I have 4 holidays to go around the city.
Ideally to cover Udaipur and around, you need 3-4 days minimum. Udaipur water supply depends totally on its lakes, which are recharged by the rain water. The kings of Udaipur had done marvellous job in building embankment on the mountains so the rain water flows back to lakes.
