Udaipur has been ranked the second-best city in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine's World's Best Awards. It is also the number one city in Asia and the only city from India to receive this honour. On July 9, 2024, the magazine announced the World's Best Awards in 125 categories. San Miguel de Allende in Mexico ranked first, and Kyoto in Japan ranked third. This is the second consecutive year that Udaipur has received this award. 

Deputy Director of the Tourism Department, Shikha Saxena, mentioned that this ranking will boost tourism and benefit the city's economy. Last year more than 20 lakh tourists visited Udaipur. This year, 8.57 Lakh tourists have already arrived in just six months.

The Oberoi Rajvilas in Jaipur has been honored with the prestigious title of the world's best hotel. This luxurious resort, known for its opulent architecture and exceptional service, offers a unique blend of traditional Rajasthani charm and modern comforts. 

In 2023, Udaipur also secured the second rank. Deputy Chief Minister Diya Kumari expressed her happiness, stating that this recognition honors the city's heritage, art, culture, cuisine, and local people.

Although the tourism season in Udaipur typically begins in October, the monsoon season with its lakes, lush green hills, and historical buildings attracts many tourists. 

The magazine conducts a survey every year, collecting responses from the general public through magazines, newspapers, social media, websites, and other online links. The survey, conducted from October 23, 2023, to February 26, 2024, evaluates cities based on six parameters: sites/landmarks, culture, food, friendliness, shopping, and value.
