Rajasthan was always on my travel check list and with limited time available due to our current busy schedules the thought of covering the entire state on my first trip seemed unrealizable. You need a nothing less than a month to explore complete Rajasthan- Udaipur , Jodhpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Mount Abu, Ranthambore, Bharatpur etc, so I decided to start with the best- Romantic and whimsical ,Udaipur will make you fall in love at first sight. The city of lakes is home to Rajputana forts, ornate palaces, resplendent temples, busy markets , stunning architecture , serene lakes and most romantic sunsets .
On Day 1, we stayed at The Tiger by Lake Pichola (my cover pic is the room view-trust me! ) . Great location, awesome hospitality and friendly staff; totally worth the stay. This deal cost us about 2500 per day for a group of 4
On the first day rented cycles and decided to explore the city on our own as most of the talked about spots were close to our place of stay. Started with Jagdish temple (known for the James Bond - Octopussy shots) then rode till the vintage car museum. If you crave for Rajasthan thali then Natraj is a must visit restaurant which is about 2kms from Lake Pichola
Day 2: Second day we decided to rent a cab (which is pretty reasonable- negotiate well). Hired a car for local tour - started the day but covered Maharana pratap museum ,Fatehsagar lake , Saheliyo ki baari( a natural fountain garden which works on 'Natural' gravitational force-awesome isn't it)
