Best Things To Do in Hyderabad

Hyderabad, the metropolitan city, which is the capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, is better known as one of the prominent IT hubs of the country. Although history sheds enough light on the capital’s past, yet the glitzy malls, cafes and IT centres have somehow overshadowed the cultural history of the destination. The best things to do in Hyderabad include those associated with the nightlife and shopping experiences, yet one could even delve into the details of Hyderabad’s pre-colonial era to know more.
While the Mughals have given this city the infamous Hyderabadi Biryani, colonialism’s modernisation boosted the city’s IT wave. The city hosts an exotic destination for the film industry, the Ramoji Film City, attracting a horde of tourists throughout the year even if it means touring the staggeringly big compound in the Hyderabadi heat. Falaknuma Palace, the Charminar and the Golconda fort are the breathtaking monumental creations, which are sure to produce some ridiculously good Facebook cover photos. Heritage in the city of Hyderabad is hard to fault, but it is the electric energy diffused from this destination that people are head-over-heels for.
The people of Hyderabad exhibit a unique cultural blend of the Muslim and the South Indian people. This combination has germinated some of the most exquisite dishes of the country, with Hyderabadi Biryani being a classic example. You could find the richness and grandeur of the Nawabi cuisine as well as the light refreshing meals of South Indian cooking. Hyderabad’s culture is not a bore to the eyes, as this place has effortlessly blended different identities to produce a fabulous crowd that is easy to get along with.
Being a metropolitan city, Hyderabad is well connected with the major cities of the country through the flight. Even the railway junction brings different destinations spread across India to Hyderabadi rail tracks. One of the best things to do in Hyderabad would be to take nearby road trips, as the city serves some excellent road infrastructures.

Book a day solely with a holistic experience, as the city might surprise you in ways you thought was not possible.
