Built by a King, fit for royalty, Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur has hosted royalty, celebrities and Bond film Octopussy. The ultra-glam islet is a floating marble palace amidst Lake Pichola. My Grand Royal Suite is adorned in antique gilded swing, reminiscent of Princesses afore.
Hire the King’s boat with royal oarsmen for the most regal dining experience on the planet – also where my partner recently proposed. Complete with classical dancers, musician, fireworks and Champagne 10-course meal my answer was, ‘Yes!’

Another fairytale city in the south of Rajasthan, Udaipur is a fabulously romantic place to relax in luxury, shop, and do some excellent sightseeing. Built around the exceedingly picturesque Lake Pichola, Udaipur is home to the City Palace, an ornate complex of courtyards, terraces, and gardens overlooking the lake; and to the Lake Palace, a stunning ultra-luxury hotel occupying its own small island in the center of the lake. If your budget doesn't stretch to 5-star accommodation, there are a slew of plush guesthouses in the old city with excellent lake views from their upper floors. The outlying areas of the city start to look like the ordinary squalor of India pretty fast, but the cooking schools of the city center are one of best places in the country to learn how to make a mean paneer butter masala.

Udaipur is called the "Venice of the East" or "Venice of India", and when you see Lake Pichola, you'll understand why. It's very beautiful, especially when you come directly from the rougher/dirtier cities in India like Mumbai. The highlight for me was a boat cruise around the lake, where you can see the famous Lake Palace and Jagmandir Island Palace. The boat includes a stop at Jagmandir, and it's a great place to take a lot of photos. Udaipur is basically old-world, idyllic charming and its various palaces transport you straight to its storied past. I would recommend a visit; though I don't think there's enough to do here for more than about 3 days.

This is one of the Westernmost cities in the Rajasthan and really worth the trek. I did not stay at the Lake Palace (wish I did) but the city is just magical, the lake spectacular, and it is not flooded with tourists unlike other cities in the Rajasthan. Don't miss it!

With its romantically lit Lake Palace, Udaipur has to be the most romantic city in India. And if you can't afford to stay at the famous Lake Palace (I couldn't), you can still get great views from the balconies of most restaurants. Take a boat over to tour the luxurious palace during the day, so at least you can briefly pretend to be rich. For its relaxing, pristine aesthetic, Udaipur is a welcome escape from the hectic nature of so many other Indian cities.
