The 12 best things to do in Udaipur

This city is often called the ‘Venice of the East’ and while this may be a slight exaggeration, the best things to do in Udaipur, all within a strones throw of numerous lakes and bridges, certainly lend it a unique charm. Seemingly frozen in time, this historical city still has a palace with a royal family in residence. No wonder it was the backdrop for James Bond’s adventures in ‘Octopussy’ (screenings of which happen daily around the old city). There’s plenty for history and culture buffs to see and do, but there’s also incredible food, shopping, and pleasant weather.
