HolidayIQ reviewer Sujanendra says, "Udaipur has three interconnected lakes - the Fateh Sagar Lake, the Lake Pichola and the smaller Swaroop Sagar Lake; along with forts, palaces, temples, gardens, mountains and but narrow lanes to Palace is little worrying. The city is protected by the elevated Aravalli Hills. Food though little costly tasty and the people are helpful."

HolidayIQ reviewer Rohith says, "The centrepiece attraction of this beautiful place is the famous Dal Lake which has many houseboats which provide good and expensive accommodation. There are also 3 Maugham gardens which have a large variety of flowers and trees. There is also a tulip garden but it's not open all around the year. Hiking enthusiasts may climb up the hill overseeing the city to visit the Sankaracharya temple which provides a spectacular view of the city below."

HolidayIQ reviewer Ramdeo Duddhi says, “If you are a nature lover then Kodai is a must visit. You will be amongst the clouds on and off and is a different experience.  Although commercialised there are enough empty spaces with an abundance of greenery unlike in Ooty and coupled with chill weather helps in making the stay memorable.”
