The hour-long boat ride along the lake becomes of the most romantic things to do in Udaipur as evening culminates into night, filling the sky with stars. A boat ride gives a view of the various palaces of the city- The City Palace, Lake Palace, Jagmandir and Udai Vilas. We did our boating from Lal Ghat as it was very near from our hotel. One can also opt boating from Rameshwar Ghat in the city palace gardens.
