Travel Diaries: Udaipur, Rajasthan – Day 1

Road trips are a lot of fun but I’m going on one right after Udaipur so I decided to travel to Udaipur by train and back by flight. I left delhi in the evening and reached Udaipur City’s train station early in the morning at 8:00.

The station is clean and the train journey was quite comfortable.

We reached our hotel in our Zoomcar and grabbed breakfast and headed straight to the market.

There are a lot of interesting markets in Udaipur, the one I liked the most -Bada Bazar. Even though a lot of the shops were not open because it was Sunday we still found a lot of stuff to buy.

We then went straight to Ambrai for lunch. Don’t miss this restaurant when you are at Udaipur because it has the most spectacular view of Lake Pichola. You can also spot the Taj Lake Palace hotel, Jag Mandir, Udaivillas, etc. from there.

After lunch we spent time at the Manji Raj ki ghat. We stayed there till sunset.

It was the most spectacular sunset I’ve seen in a long long time.

We then went to the Hathi Pol market to buy some more stuff. It’s very convenient to have your own car in an unknown city. That way you get to explore the city like a local.

We came back to our hotel after a short trip to the local mall. It’s called Celebration Mall and it has a lot of popular eateries and restaurants. It even has an Apple store!
