Tip – In case you are planning to fly down, consider flying to Ahmedabad and driving or taking a bus to Udaipur. The fare difference is considerable and the Udaipur airport is an hour away from the city so you might not save a lot of time anyway.
Just 257km away, Ahmedabad is the closest major city to Udaipur. It is very well connected by road with multiple private buses plying regularly which take about 5hrs to reach. There are two daily trains but you best avoid them unless you have no other choice – the train is slow and also not very well maintained. Ahmedabad is close enough for a quick drive too.
