Forgive me if this seems astray, but this is my first foray into Travel India and I am wonderfully blown-away by the magnitude and diversity of this country. I must say, I am pleasantly surprised!

But, it leads to conflicts when you only have a short amount of time and want to get the most out of your visit.

Therefore, is it feasible to travel between Udaipur and Mumbai with car and driver. Departing on say the 17th-18th of March, and arriving in Mumbai on 19th or 20th of March. If so, what would be a fantastic, out-of-the-way, must stop destination to overnight in?

Budget is wide-open.

Three in the group.

Anything on the Arabian Sea coast?

Surat anybody? I was told that they have fantastic vegetarian food.

Thank you in advance for your kind replies.

I hope to be a little more specific in my next threads.

Cheers!

Is it feasible? Yes. Will it be ost effective, probably not. You will be charged for the return trip from Mumbai to Udaipur.

From my experience on the train - I suggest that you fly from Udaipur - Mumbai.

Dear swinehead,
The entire stretch from Udaipur to Mumbai is National Highway No.8 and I presume the road must be good and perhaps, you have to cover around 800 Kms.

But, subject to availability of time at your disposal, perhaps you may consider the following option also:-

Champaner (between Vadodara and Godhra) looks like a good place to visit.

Many thanks for all of your replies. They are extremely helpful and I appreciate all the effort you have shown, particularly VSP27759!

I am afraid I am rather new at this so if I don't reply to you directly, please do not take offence. It's just that I am bamboozled!

In the meantime, thank you all again for your kind consideration.

I'll let you know how I got on.
