The UB Journey

On this day, we wanna take you back in time to watch how our ship sailed through the winds!

THE JOURNEY

When we touched 1000+ followers

22 July 2014

It is rightly said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Our journey also started with little baby steps in the year 2014 with a tiny success of getting 1000+ followers on our Instagram handle.

The amazing 10,000

23 June 2015

Soon after a successful herald, we ticked our first box. 10k followers were huge for us and we duly thank Udaipur!

The happiness of 50,000 followers

5 August 2016

This cannot be put into great words, but yes, within a span of two years we gained wishes and support of 50k people over our Instagram. Have you ever experienced climbing a mountain? The feeling is always amazing, we sure do get tired but the view from there is worth all the efforts. Must have experienced it when climbing ‘Bahubali Hill’, haven’t you?

The same feeling comes when all the efforts creating an aesthetically appealing content for the people of the city you love, get appreciated by a loyal followership.

A whopping 100k

23 November 2018

Two years later to a 50K followership, today we have achieved 100K! The road to 100K wasn’t smooth but with the love for the city and its people made us work harder.

Instagram worthy Places in Udaipur

Being called as one of the most beautiful and exotic tourist destinations in Rajasthan, Udaipur is truly blessed with the presence of mesmerizing lakes, larger than life hotels, temperate weather, and its romantic vibes. Not to forget, it is home to some of the most instagrammable pictures which act as a source of major attraction for travelers and backpackers.

Although there are a plenty of picturesque places in Udaipur, according to me, I have selected some of the best and handpicked locations for awe-striking and Instagrammable Pictures.

1. City Palace-

The top choice and a must visit place in Udaipur, City Palace is surrounded by beautiful balconies, tall pillars and Cupolas towering over the lake. A combination of vibrant blue sky and Golden city Palace gives a perfect click for Instagram.

2. Lake Badi hill-

View this post on Instagram

My first visit to Badi lake 👀 About today👇🏼 Me and @yash_mhatre decided to leave for Rajasthan with no plan in place. Boarded a bus and reached Udaipur the next day. Roamed around for a day and the second day, went off to visit Badi Lake after much planning and all (which ofcourse didn’t work out as we thought it would). We met the very generous @amish__jain in the meanwhile, who offered to help us see around and took us to Badi Lake. Can’t thank him enough. The experience has been mesmerising. Clicked this on my GoPro using Bite mount. Shot on @goproin / @gopro Hero6 Black #Goprohero6 #GoPro #GoProIndia #GoProFamily #GoProTravel #hero6black #hero6 #beautifuldestinations #traveltheworld #streetphotographyinternational #travel #rajasthan #indianphotography #streetdreamsmag #_soi #natgeotravellerindia #indiapictures #_soimumbai #indiaphotoproject #photographers_of_india #gqindia #cntgiveitashot #rajasthantourism #udaipur #ongooglemaps #jaigopro

A post shared by Yash Rane 🇮🇳 (@chefyash) on

Lake Badi hill has become a major tourist attraction recently because of its stunning view and the best time to visit is in evening to click the perfect sunset.

3. Old City Market-

Old city market consists of amazing handicrafts, artistic paintings, beautiful jewelry and colorful textiles that gives a true essence of the city. This is a can’t miss photo opportunity place when you are visiting the City of Lakes.

4. Fateh Sagar Lake-

The charm of Udaipur is incomplete without a visit to Fateh Sagar Lake. It is a photographer’s paradise and generally, the best shots get captured in the night. You will find at least one picture of Fateh Sagar Lake in every Udaipurites Instagram account.

5. Ambrai Ghat-

Surrounded by a detailed view of City Palace on one side and Lake Palace on another, Ambrai Ghat is undoubtedly the most photogenic place in Udaipur. The best pictures get shot in the daytime as well as night.

6. Footbridge at Pichola lake-

The famous footbridge of Udaipur looks lit in the night and gives you a true feel of a romantic city. Pictures of the footbridge show the beauty of the old city.

7. Peepliya Ji-

A top destination to click pictures, especially if you are a nature lover. Best snaps get captured in the early morning during sunrise. The foggy morning makes u feel trippy and happy at the same time.

8. Gangaur Ghat-

Situated on the banks of Lake Pichola, Gangaur Ghat is a delight for all photographers as one can capture the beauty of the old city in a single frame. The Ghat is also home to some of the famous movies that have been shot here like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Ramleela.

9. Sahelion Ki Bari-

The sprawling garden is a must visit not only for photographers but for every individual who loves flora. The enchanting fountains, lotus pools, and marble pavilions are sufficient to catch the eyeballs of every person. Sahelion ki Bari is an oasis of peace within the city of lakes.

10. Sajjangarh fort-

Top 5 Travel Apps For Exploring Udaipur

Top 5 Travel Apps For Exploring Udaipur

India, a world within itself, is full of adventure, charm and beauty. One such destination that adds mysticism into any traveler’s diary for India is Udaipur. Udaipur is considered to be one of the most romantic places in India. Surrounded by three lakes, the city converges beauty with royalty in more ways than one. If Udaipur has been lingering in your travel bucket list for a while, this year you must make it a point to visit it. Along with your backpack, don’t forget to carry your internet travel bag, which can easily fit into your pocket. A smartphone with the right apps will help you enjoy your Udaipur trip to the hilt. Here are few apps— all free —that you must install on your smartphone, even before you book your flight.

 

Google-Maps-Logo

Google Maps:

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Ditch your car when you are exploring Udaipur. The best way to enjoy the mesmerizing city, after camels, is by auto-rickshaws. Autos-rickshaws are one of the most affordable and convenient modes of public transport available in the city. But the last thing you want is to be disoriented as far as the routes and directions are concerned. An app that has your back for navigating through the beautiful streets of Udaipur is Google Maps. This app provides comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps, with built-in Google local search, voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation, and public transport directions. It will also come handy if you are planning a road trip to the city. There are no meters for auto-rikshaws in Udaipur, so be sure to bargain & keep Google Maps handy before you actually get on board. (Available across all platforms)

 

Tripadvisor

TripAdvisor:

Accommodation options in Udaipur are quite varied. You can choose to stay in anything from royal havelis to modern 5-star hotels. TripAdvisor is a great way to check out new hotels, B&B, inns and hostels in Udaipur. With this app, you can compare prices offered by various travel portals such as Booking.com or Hotels.com, check availability and book your room in Udaipur. This app can also help you plan your day with suggestions about places to visit, activities, shopping, etc. It has millions of traveler reviews and opinions to help you plan that perfect holiday. (Available on iOS, Android, Windows and Symbian)

Opera-Mini-logo

Opera Mini:

The ingredients of a successful trip include saving money while enjoying whatever the place has to offer. Traveling can cause your mobile bill to soar, since accessing mobile internet while roaming can prove to be quite expensive. Yet, browsing the web with your mobile phone can be useful when you want to learn more about Udaipur’s City Palace on Wikipedia or to share your updates with friends on Facebook and Twitter. With the Opera Mini browser, you can make your web browsing experience faster and cheaper. Opera Mini shrinks webpages by up to 90%, so your phone processes little of what you see on your screen. This translates into cost savings, especially while roaming, and less processing also brings along battery savings. (Available across all platforms)

 

Evernote Food

Evernote Food:

Experiencing food in Udaipur is like basking in the Rajasthani culture. From street food to the delectable shahikhana, you can have quite a gastronomical journey here. But how many of us actually remember the names of the traditional dishes that we relish on our trips. With Evernote Food, you will be able to discover, collect and share your favorite dishes. You can also use the app to take down the famous Rajasthani recipes and try them when you go back home. So, from finding great new restaurants to documenting how to make authentic recipes, Evernote Food gives you one place to discover, collect and remember your life’s memorable moments in food. (Available on iOS and Android)

 

instagram-logo

The beauty of Udaipur lies in its picturesque landscapes, beautiful forts and the gorgeous lakes. This destination is a photographer’s delight. Even though you might carry a separate camera for photography, there will be some breathtaking sites you might like to share with friends and family in realtime. With Instagram, you can pick from one of its several gorgeous filtered effects or use tilt-shift blur to breathe new life into your mobile photos. Transform your travel moments into works of art before sharing with friends and family on social networks. (Available on iOS and Android)
