Udaipur is better known as the City of Lakes, but it is also a perfect place for romance. If you are looking for a great place to spend some quality time with your partner there is no better place than Udaipur. The city can surprise you with the kind of art, culture, heritage and historic places that you will find here. However, Udaipur is also immensely popular for food and you have to visit some of the top restaurants here to experience the best. Upre by 1559 AD was one of the restaurants on our list and we had the privilege to make the most of our trip.
Being the City of Lakes, Udaipur has plenty of lake-front restaurants that offer you fine dining experience. However, this small town has more to offer than you can imagine. If you are looking for some exceptional food in Udaipur you have to do better research. Most of the top restaurants are generally located close to the Lake Pichola. However, that doesn’t mean that you don’t look beyond it. Lake Fateh Sagar and the places around it can offer you equally good food options. We made an instant decision to visit 1559 A.D. for dinner and it is surely one of the best restaurants in Udaipur. Let me share what we discovered.
Food is such an important part of the tours we do. Normally, when I and Sarah tour some place we check for some of the best restaurants that we could find. Even before we had thought of Udaipur, I had a word with one of my friends Zeyd on Udaipur. Since he is originally from Udaipur, we had a long chat on how Udaipur would be a great place for us to holiday and travel. It was then, that he had recommended me Tribute restaurant that offers lakeside fine dining. So, the first thing that I noted in my diary was this place. I’m glad that he did because it was definitely worth the experience.
Flea markets in India are quite common and we Indians love to bargain and pick up products at dirt cheap prices. However, recently when I was researching about the flea markets in India, I found this interesting event happening in Mumbai, known as The Lil Flea. Now, while the name certainly has an adjective ‘Lil’ attached to it, but this flea market is in no ways little.
Unlike other cities in India, Mumbai has a spirit that never dies down, not even on a weekend. The residents here might grumble to you about the hectic lifestyle and the boring routine. However, they are definitely unwilling to put their feet up and sit back at home on weekends.
Many people travel for many reasons. While some travel for business, some travel for pleasure. On the other hand, there are people that travel for photography, exploring new places, adventure and food. Chefs, food bloggers and vloggers usually travel for finding new food cuisines and local delicacies. However, there are many people that love food and want to try it out when they travel to India. So, are you among those who love to try local cuisines when travelling?
I’m sure many people know about Diwali globally. If you are the ones who don’t, let me tell you Diwali is the grandest festival of India. It is the festival of lights signifying the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over bad and hope over despair. So, people light up their homes with lanterns, oil lamps, and all those LED bulbs. There are various religious and mythological stories associated with Diwali which you’ll find online. I will be focusing on Diwali now and then.
One of the exciting things about being a travel blogger is the kind of food you get on your journey. I am no food blogger who would gobble down tons of food in one session. However, I and Sarah are always willing to try new cuisines and food items that come our way. It would be hard to say which cuisine in the world is the best. I believe every region is unique and has its own character and food. However, we love eating authentic Punjabi food in Mumbai whenever we love to dine out. We believe Made in Punjab at InOrbit Mall is one of the best North Indian restaurants in Mumbai.
As a travel blogger, I have visited different cities across India. However, so far I haven’t come across any Indian city that matches the spirit of Mumbai. Of course, you can say I’m biased. I was born and brought up in this city that fuels the economy of India. However, even those who are not from Mumbai would agree with me. Often Mumbai is compared with New York City and London as both these cities are economic powerhouses in their own countries. However, I believe every city has its soul and character which is quite unique in its own way. Now, I can go on and on bragging about what Mumbai has to offer. However, I will stick to top 7 reasons why I love Mumbai and why it is the best city in the country.
I am certainly not a foodie, I guess you can tell from my slim body size, but I love exploring new food and places where I can find delicious food. Somehow new veg restaurants in Mumbai offer something new that attract me. Furthermore, I love to experience their own take on how they present food and the kind of flavors they infuse in it. For me, the visit to the veg restaurants in Mumbai is not only about the food, but about the experience, so there are a few Indian restaurants that make it up to my favorite list, Cream Centre is one such veg restaurants in Mumbai that never disappoints me.
Recently, while I was working on my client’s projects I came across an article in an Indian newspaper. The article mentioned that Mumbai, India’s Maximum City, has been ranked among the top 20 expensive cities in the world. While London was ranked ahead of New York and Hong Kong, Mumbai, my birth city, was the only Indian city that made it to the list. The news further tells us that all the top cities are most expensive for businesses and workers to occupy. This means that the report only focuses on the real estate segment and does not take into consideration the average lifestyle and living conditions. Ironically, Mumbai is often voted as the most expensive city in India, but I can assure you that majority of the Mumbai population survives on less than Rs. 20000 per month (that’s US$300). To all those who grumble about the rising cost of the city, let me tell you this – Mumbai is all about finding options. The city is open to all from beggars to millionaires; therefore all you need to do is find what you want. If you are in the Maximum City on a limited budget for business purposes, or if you are visiting someone just for a day or two, here are some ways on how to survive in Mumbai at a minimum cost.
