If there is one thing I wish I had done more in my life so far, it’s travelling. So far, I have only managed to go abroad twice – once to Italy with my family and once to France on a press trip for my website – but there are so many places that I would love to visit across the world that I have just not had the opportunity to visit yet.
One such country is India. Many of my friends and family have visited different parts of India and sang its praises and told me just how much I should visit and having researched a little myself, I would love to! I’ve been looking into what things are like in the big cities and also what things are like in the smaller towns and cities – I sometimes like to go off the beaten track, so to speak.
My research has, of course, led me to check out both accommodation and amenities. I’ve checked various cities but the hotels in Udaipur really caught my eye.There are such a wide variety of fantastic hotels to choose from, situated in some luscious areas and very affordable too.
But why exactly did Udaipur catch my eye over other popular tourist destinations in India such as Goa or Mumbai? The city is also known as ‘City of Lakes’, It is known as the ‘City of Lakes’ because of the lake system – it has seven lakes surrounding the city! The city is also known for its rich history, heritage and culture – there are massive forts and palaces, galleries, museums and so much more to see when visiting Udaipur. There are also some absolutely beautiful temples and stunning architecture for visitors to see – they really are a wonder to behold.
I would mostly like to travel to India at some point in the next few years to see just how similar and how different life is like in the country compared to the UK. I find the UK can seem quite depressing, boring and bleak at times whereas to me, India always seems so vivid, so full of colour and excitement. There is so much breathtaking architecture, historical landmarks and other things to see that you’d never be bored and you’ll leave feeling as if you’ve learned something. Furthermore, travelling to India would take me out of my comfort zone a little – it is a much longer flight than the ones to Italy and France, I’ve never been on a flight longer than a couple of hours before! I’d be able to see things I’d only ever dreamed of seeing once upon a time.
Travelling is taking a backseat in 2018 but hopefully 2019 will be the year I get to check out some of the places I’ve been wanting to visit. I’ll certainly be keeping my eyes out for affordable hotel deals – after all, you want to know you’ll be sleeping soundly without paying through the nose, right?
Have you ever travelled to India? Have you ever visited Udaipur? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
