Day 2

There are many good german, french cafes in Udaipur. We had breakfast at Cafe Edelweiss (since 1999 in Udaipur). Then we went to City Palace.

Ticket rates are ₹300 per person. This palace is amazing. You can see Rajasthani art, some exceptional crystal work and the history behind it. It takes around 3 hrs to see City Palace. Then you can also visit Crystal Art Gallery. You have to buy tickets for this.

We had a lunch at Rainbow Restaurant. Again amazing food.

After taking some rest in the afternoon we took Lake Pichola Sunset Boat Ride. The cost is ₹250 per person, if you buy tickets from place near to Rainbow Restaurant. Don't take boat ride from City Palace, it's unnecessary costly.

We spend some time on Udaipur streets to know its history and culture. Narrow streets, happening places make you feel refreshed all the time.

We had dinner at Garden Hotel.
