Udaipur in a day !

9th Mar 2015

Udaipur's charms lie in it's narrow byelanes leading to the more touristy landmarks. The colour of the textiles and handicrafts is something that stays with you. Beware of the intercity traffic- We were caught up in a traffic jam caused by an elephant ! Udaipur can be easily covered within a day or two. We stopped at the local market outside the City Palace and shopped for handmade wooden key chains, leather bound diaries and earrings for a good bargain.

We spent not more than Rs.7000 to be divided among 5 people.  

Each artifact has a story to tell. Brilliant for those with patience, for fast trackers the monotony builds on after a while. The entrance fee without a tour guide was approx. Rs.680 (5 people) with the use of a camera
A beautiful drive through a natural reserve. The monsoon palace is situated atop a hill. I highly recommend catching a view of the sunset. A beautiful end to the trip. Without a tour guide we spent approx. Rs. 450 on the entrance ticket along with the car entrance fee.
A serene lake where one can engage in boating activities. You can find a multitude of snacking options on the banks of the lake.
Didn't really see much of the island. Traveled with a bunch of impatient travelers. Nevertheless, wouldn't trade my company for the world.
We stopped for breakfast on the highway itself at this decent dhaba like place. Lunch was at a tiny restaurant overlooking the Lake Pichola. Brilliant view, decent food coupled with lovely company. For dinner we stopped at a restaurant right outside Udaipur towards Ahmedabad. Our total expenditure on food for the trip was approx. Rs. 2700 (5 people)
