Udaipur is known as the romantic city of India, and is also the place where the James Bond movie Octapussy was filmed. This movie was shown in many of the hotels, guest houses and rooftop restaurants along the Lake Pichola, which is also the place you can see the famous Lake Palace (picture above).
The life in Udaipur was easy to get used to, and we spent as long as a week doing hindicourses, practicing yoga on a rooftop, making tailormade shirts and suits and walked along the beutiful promenade by the Lake.
The first six days were spent at an extremely cheap guesthouse (“Jag Niwas” at 100Rupees/10NOK) pp a night. Towards the end our stay, we decided to pamper ourself with good meals and a hotelroom nicer that any of us had previously stayed in. It seemed like the market for accomodation and restaurants was pretty good here. Also the city is full of culture and historical buildings such as the City Palace and the many temples hidden away in the narrow streets. Udaipur is a beautiful city and the perfect place for harnessing chi. It is a destination we could recommend all fellow travelers to stay longer in, when visiting India.
Above is a picture of the room we rented at a pound a night, quite cheap even for India
