UDAIPUR

OK! (Australia) - - Life & Style -

WHERE TO STAY

The ro­man­tic and pri­vate Taj Lake Palace in the mid­dle of Lake Pi­chola is hard to beat. If you’d pre­fer to stay on dry land, book a room at the Chunda Palace or The Oberoi Udaivi­las.

WHERE TO EAT

Try Sheesh Ma­hal restau­rant for lo­cal flavour with lake views, and The Sun­set Ter­race for sun­down­ers. If you need a break from In­dian cui­sine, grab a toastie and juice from Grass­wood Café.

WHAT TO DO

Put­ter around Lake Pi­chola in a tim­ber boat at dusk or dawn – it’s the best time to take pho­tos, as ev­ery­thing is lit up with a soft, golden glow. Visit the stun­ning City Palace for 360-de­gree views of Udaipur, then walk down to Bada Bazaar to stock up on jew­ellery, tex­tiles, camel-leather goods and sou­venirs.

GOOD TO KNOW

You can­not visit the Taj Lake Palace un­less you’re a guest – but once you are, you’ll never want to leave! Sit by the pool un­der the bougainvil­leas, wan­der the mar­ble-lined hall­ways or prac­tise yoga on the gor­geous ter­race.
