beyond charminar & biryani
Hyderabad is all about its colourful culture, cuisine and chronicled past. When in this city of Nizams, it is hard to miss the iconic Charminar and the bustling shops and eateries around it. Golconda Fort, Salar Jang Museum and Chowmahalla Palace are other places to visit in Hyderabad that tell tales of its glorious past. Besides exploring historical places, a trip to Ramoji Film City, jungle safari at Nehru Zoological Park and boating in Hussain Sagar Lake must also be included in Hyderabad itinerary.
Adventure sports such as paragliding, trekking and zip lining have also made it to the list of things to do in Hyderabad. Then, obviously, there is shopping for lac bangles and other budget items at Laad Bazaar. But a trip to Hyderabad will remain incomplete without a taste of its deliciously sinful street food: from the oh-so-favourite Hyderabadi biryani and boti kebab to the ever-famous Irani chai. The diverse restaurants in Hyderabad and its burgeoning nightlife also offer a fulfilling experience.
After a stay in Hyderabad, you can even extend your trip to other popular tourist destinations easily accessible from the city like Warangal and Hampi. Hill stations near Hyderabad like Ananthagiri Hills and Srisailam also make perfect weekend getaways, if you’re seeking a break from the city life.
