The Road To Udaipur
Udaipur Travel Blog› entry 15 of 19 › view all entries
Today after breakfast we had a drive of about 5 hours to Udaipur. We were travelling in the same 4Wdrives that brought us to Nimaj Bagh so I wasn’t too thrilled about that, another squashy journey to endure. Anyway I climbed in and parked myself in the back seat by the window and made myself as comfortable as possible. The journey wasn’t too bad, still squashy though as there are three of us in the back seat and the driver thought he was on the Grand Prix circuit. After 3 hours we had a rest stop for the bathroom, drink and stretch of legs. The countryside changed from flat desert to hills and green fields, the closer to Udaipur we got hillier it became, and it was actually very pretty.
Out hotel in Udaipur was the best yet, Hotel Mahendra Prakesh, it was a Haveli style hotel with lovely rooms, garden and pool. The afternoon was free so I relaxed for a bit had some lunch then headed out to look at some shops and find an internet cafe. There were some nice antique shops nearby and I ended up buying a couple of wooden carvings. In the late afternoon, our guide suggested going to the Culture Dance show which is put on by the local government then from there we would go for dinner.
