Udaipur, touted as the Venice of East, is on almost everybody's bucket list. Despite being a native, I'm still enthralled everyday by it's beauty & splendor. Here's how you can enjoy a day in the 'City of lakes' without burning a hole in your pocket!
Start your morning with a beautiful sunrise at Fatehsagar Lake (Cost- NIL)
Walk along the stunning lakeside & enjoy the peace and serenity it offers.
Take a tour of the City Palace to immerse yourself in the royal magnificence (Cost- INR 350)
Spend your afternoon discovering the city's hidden jewels (Cost- NIL)
You can also visit Jagdish Temple, Saheliyon ki bari, Sukhadia Circle, etc. The market at Hathipol is where you can buy handicrafts or Rajasthani clothes, jewelry, etc. at cheap rates.
Spend the evening at Jagmandir, an island palace situated in Lake Pichola (Cost- INR 1600)
A boat from the City Palace would take you to Jagmandir while you relish watching the sparkling palaces & hotels surrounding the lake. The entry fee is inclusive of dinner of the same amount! (P.S. Make a reservation by calling them earlier in the day)
