  1. Udaipur tourism The ‘City of Lakes’, the ‘ Venice of the East’. Travellers describe Udaipur as “Hill-tops, lakes, and palaces”, “huge water bodies, lots of greenery, and hills in an otherwise barren and arid land of Rajasthan”. Another traveler wrote “a quaint, quiet old town with a plethora of historical monuments to visit”.
    Its nice to visit. The Lake Palace is one of the most beautiful tourist places in Udaipur the world, arising out of the Turquoise Waters of the Pichola like an elegant fantasy in white marble.
