Udaipur Tourism Guide (Rajasthan)

Few places in arid Rajasthan can compel travellers with an unwavering charm like Udaipur does. The scenic backdrop of the Aravallis, old Havelis, and the shimmering lakes embodies the essence of Udaipur tourism . Famously known as the ‘City of Lakes,' Udaipur’s beauty and aura are unmatched with glistening lakes, picturesque forts, colorful bazaars, timeless streets and lovely countrysides.  Families and friends can plan a fun trip to Udaipur, but the romantic ambiance of this town makes it most suitable for couples. A travel guide of Udaipur shows popular attractions in Lake City including Lake Palace and Lake Pichola as well as information about shopping in Udaipur and list of hotels in Udaipur. Carry a tourist map of Udaipur if you're looking to go for self-guided sightseeing. Also check out flights to Udaipur in advance to avoid very expensive flights. Dubbed as the Venice of the East, Udaipur is truly a perfect destination for culture seekers, nature lovers, honeymooners, and families.

The best time to visit Udaipur is during the winter season from September to February when the weather cools down considerably. Udaipur has a variety of fun tourist experiences like sunset boat cruises, haveli tours, desert safaris, ropeway excursions, craft fairs, museum tours, and vintage car shows. Weave romance-laden tales by the five lakes in Udaipur: Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar, Jaisamand Lake, Udai Sagar Lake and Rajsamand Lake. Udaipur tourism also includes spicy food, like Lal Maas- which has a lively mixture of red chilies, mutton, and herbs.

Shopaholics will have a gala time here exploring the ancient and colorful bazaars of Udaipur. Embrace the Rajasthani culture by shopping for traditional souvenirs, paintings, and artisanal products here.

You can visit Udaipur tourist places like the five lakes, City Palace, Eklingji Temple,  Saheliyo Ki Bari, Jag Mandir Palace, Gulab Bagh Zoo, Doodh Talai Musical Garden and the Vintage Car Museum. Explore the old-world feel of the ‘Venice of the East’ and take horseback rides on the lovely country slopes here. The City Palace Museum Udaipur entry fee includes the fees for the light and sound show. However, when here make sure to check out the City Palace Udaipur Light and Sound Show timings as well. Make sure to find out some facts about Udaipur history, before going.


Immerse yourself in the diverse cultural environment of Udaipur and enjoy the alluring beauty of lakes, forts, and vintage car museums.

 

Unwind on this Udaipur trip with a sunset boat cruise on the surreal Lake Pichola. While on this cruise, enjoy the beauty of elevated hills, decorated temples, lofty palaces, and bathing ghats on all sides. Marvel at the architectural and classical wonders-City Palace, Kumbhalgarh fort and Sajjan Garh Fort. Witness the excellent combination of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture at the City Palace on this Udaipur travel guide. Tourists will love the peaceful environment of the Sajjan Garh fort that overlooks the Fateh Sagar Lake.

 

Udaipur tourism guide also involves a tour of some historical wonders like the Bagore ki Haveli, Jagdish Temple, Pratap Smarak, Saheliyon Ki Bari, Shilp Gram and Bhartiya Lok Kala Mandal.  A trip to Udaipur is incomplete without a ropeway excursion across the city that offers beautiful aerial views.  This ride also takes tourists to the Karni Mata temple where you can seek blessings from the Goddess.

 

As part of Udaipur tourism, brave the blistering heat to explore the Udaipur Lake Palace that lies on the Jag Niwas Island.  Enjoy a fairytale rendezvous here where the rooms are painted in pink stone works, lotus leaves and winding archways. The pillared terraces and fountains add to the charm of this palace.

 

As part of a Udaipur travel guide, tourists can also go on fun cycle tours to explore the city. You can cycle through Jagdish Chowk, pass by the famous Clock Tower, pick up spices at the Bada Baza before heading to Lake Pichola, and spend some moments of solace there.

 

Pick up some exquisite handmade papers, cloth lanterns, puppets, wall hangings, Pichwai paintings, batik prints,  tie and dye and bandhani sarees.  Some of the famous bazaars in Udaipur are Bada Bazaar, Rajasthali, Sadhana Emporium and Hathi Pol.

 

Udaipur travel information also includes exciting horse rides around the Aravallis where you may be able to spot antelopes, blue bull, and chausingha. Enjoy the thrill of vintage car collections at the Vintage & Classic Car Collection Museum.

 

The romantic grandeur and ambiance of Udaipur is perfect for a holiday retreat and makes it a perfect tourist hotspot.

He refused to take us to the place which we asked him to take. Hence was not that happy with our Driver but the beauty of Rajasthan made us to overpass ! We had a great trip to Rajasthan, it was one of our best trip. No words to describe the beauty of Rajasthan. Thanks to Carlo travels for making our trip the memorable one.

    FAQ's of Udaipur

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Udaipur is one of the most popular travel destinations in India and as such, is full of reliable places for solo travellers to stay. As long as the necessary precautions are taken and a general awareness is practiced, there is nothing wrong with Udaipur as a city for solo travel.

    Obviously, the best season to visit Udaipur is the winter season from October-February, that is when the temperature is pleasant and the city can be enjoyed peacefully. Having said that, monsoon is not too bad either and it can be a good idea for low budget travellers to go at that time. Summer isn't a very good idea as the temperature during the day is in between 40-45 degrees celsius.

    The City Palace of Udaipur is a must visit to introduce yourself to the architetural brilliance and the royal elegance of what once was in the city. A boat ride around Lake Pichola seeing the sights and especially th Lake Palace in the middle is also not to be missed. Bagore Ki Haveli museum is another item on the tourist checklist. Lastly, the Jagdish temple and the Eklingji temple are must visits for religious significance

    There are plenty of hotels in the lal ghat, gangaur ghat area and both are ideally located for tourists wishing to be near all the attractions in Udaipur as lal ghat is walking distance from a lot of the major places to visit in Udaipur.

     

    Lake Pichola, Udaisagar Lake, Fateh Sagar Lake, Rajsamand Lake, and Jaisamand Lake are the five major lakes in Udaipur.
