Udaipur is probably the most romantic place in India. It’s a small city of gleaming white palaces, set on a lake and surrounded by a mountain range. Whether you’re visiting alone, or with a partner or friend, it’s a challenge not to fall in love with the place.
As the former royal capital, Udaipur feels exactly that – royal. As you wander round the 500-year-old City Palace or gaze out to Jag Niwas (the former royal summer retreat floating in the middle of the lake), it’s not hard to imagine the ancient dynasty in action.
But, as ever in India, it’s the contrast that gives Udaipur its charm. Move seamlessly from regal rooms and ornate balconies to the shabby streets of the Old Town, where you’ll dodge the cows and barter for treasures. Or spend an evening overlooking the ghats, the steps leading down to the lake, which really teem with life. You can spend hours watching children bathe in the shallows, women washing their rainbow-coloured saris and dozens of people hanging about, chatting to their friends.
Udaipur ticks three pretty crucial boxes: food, art and shopping. Here, you can watch a cookery demonstration in a family-run haveli; witness artists paint miniscule designs on to squares of silk; and stuff your suitcase with wall hangings, silk scarves and silver jewellery.
You can fill your days in Udaipur with countless exciting activities and still go to bed feeling rested and relaxed. It is absolutely not to be missed.
This one’s special. Relaxed but vibrant, traditional but up-and-coming, Udaipur’s got it all and remains a firm favourite for visitors to India. You might come for the sights, but you’ll stay for the overwhelmingly positive atmosphere here. Head over to our blogs to read what others have got up to in Udaipur.
If the Earth’s the body, then India is the soul - a land of spirituality, contrasts and rich culture.
