Royal and Budget stays, All the Lake view facing Havelis are absolutely gorgeous, well-maintained and offer a royal experience at steal-worthy rates. My personal favorite is Lake Pichola Hotel, which was an absolutely beautiful. From the service to the rooms and the food. Loved it!

We also stayed in Thamla Haveli for a day, which was a steal, value for money.

Shopping, Fabrics, colors, antiques, clothes, shoes and souvenirs,Udaipur has them all. Moving from one street to another, you can easily spend more than a day shopping. Make sure you visit Hathi Pol and Bada Bazaar for great deals.

Art and Culture, I absolutely loved walking around in Udaipur. Not only is it picturesque and offers great photographic opportunities, but the streets and walls are multi-coloured and filled with art and graffiti.
