Tonga

When in Udaipur, do try the hopping ride of a tonga. Feel the jumps and skitters and the rhythmic bells of the horse cling clang when you move forward. One of the cheapest means to travel in Udaipur, especially the older parts of the city, tongas hold the novelty (read: excitement) factor for many and are something your children are going to love.


  • Taxi

    The city is also replete with
    cab service providers but do make sure you bargain with them as they may quote exorbitant prices. It is a good idea to get an approximate amount of fare from your hotel staff before you head out to take a taxi, so that you get value for your money. In case you feel taxi charges are too steep, hail an autorickshaw and head to the place you want to go. There are meters or fixed fairs in autos either, so don't forget the golden rule here, do bargain!

    • Bicycle

      An interesting and fun way to explore Udaipur, the City of Lakes is to head out on a
      bicycle. The roads here have light traffic and it is easy to maneuver around. Not only is cycling pocket and health friendly, but also promises a local feel of the area, which other means might take away. Bicycles are available for rent all over the city and depending on how long you need it for, you might have to spend INR 30 - INR 100. Make sure your tyres have enough air and the breaks work, you don't want to leave your exploration to hunt for a mechanic (they are easily spotted in the markets of the area, so don't worry if you have a flat tyre).


    Don't forget to carry your sport shoes here, as inside most monuments and palace complexes you will be walking. For most parts, you can leave your worries at home as Udaipur's transport network is well developed and the people are tourist friendly.
