Off the foreshore in front of the Palace you will see some of the Palace boats. The Palace rowboat in blue and red is not used for that many occasions. During the 1990’s Udaipur made history when the first solar boats were introduced on Lake Pichola.
Boat-rides on Lake Pichola are available throughout the day until late in the evenings. You can find the Boat centre at Bansi Ghat which will provides information and assistance for boat-rides and bird-watching.
The RSRTC (Rajasthan State Road Transport Corp) have busses that travel to and from Udaipur to other regional areas. Be sure to take an express or deluxe service otherwise the trip will make numerous stops and detours while they zig zag their way to their final destination. Be sure to book ahead.
You can easily catch a rickshaw for going short distances around Udaipur but be aware that most drivers will want you to stop off at various stores enroute to where you have asked to be taken. Even if you aren’t interested, it’s a good idea to make at least one stop just to keep them happy but you will have to be very insistent if you are not interested. Make sure you bargain a price before you start off.
Within the city area you can hire a Tonga (or Tanga). These are light horse-drawn carriages which are used for public transport. A cheaper but slower ride to the rickshaw or taxi but nevertheless a novelty to try if of course the roads are good otherwise not a great experience.

From Udaipur is very simple to reach any destination in south Rajasthan, i.e. go to Mt. Abu, Jodhopur, Jaisalmer or even get to the north.
I took the last way, from Udaipur to Pushkar.
The bus leaves at 10pm at should arrive at 05 am of the day after. It costs around 100Rs but all depends of the compeny you choose.
Every agency or even ever GH is able to book for you for the same day those tickets with a little commission on the real cost of the ticket.
Udaipur is not particularly well served by transit options. Jet Airways has one or two flights a day from Mumbai and one from Delhi, and Indian Airlines also flies these routes. Train service is also limited, with some fairly poor connections running from Delhi/Jaipur and from Mumbai. If you can weasel a seat on any of the flights, it's worth it. Jet Airways is the best domestic airline in India, so it's preferable to Indian Airlines.
The airport in Udaipur is Dabok Airport which is around 24km from the city centre. Indian Airlines fly daily to Jodhpur, Jaipur, Aurangabad, Mumbai and Deli.
