hi, I had been to udaipur this diwali vacations i.e, in nov 2010 with my kids. it was a really wonderful experience. i enjoyed every bit if it. the palace is simply great. and shopping it's like all dreams come true in the markets of udaipur. especially for ladies it's absolute delight, to bargain and buy everything frm bandhani dresses,different types of precious stone studded jewellry to fancy mojris.i enjoyed it all! my advice to all shoppers is to buy some jades and garnets near the the streets of palace area, and for clothes hathipole market is the best.and ask a discount of about 20% everywhere.
