The former kingdom of the Nizam is the modern city of Hyderabad. Beneath the vibrancy of a modern metropolis is a city which holds on very tightly to its legacy. On a visit to the towering Charminar, or the imposing Golconda Fort, Hyderabad announces itself as a city of the past. And when you visit the Ramoji film city or the glittering shopping malls, you can see the same city set the stage for the future.
You will be received on arrival at the Hyderabad Airport and transferred to the hotel. Post check in, head to Snow World, for an avalanche of fun. Birla Mandir, which we visit next, is a joy to behold. Unwind at the Lumbini Park, before riding a boat up to the Buddha statue in the middle of Hussain Sagar. Also sample Necklace Road and the serene NTR Gardens that lie adjacent. Overnight stay at the hotel.
Grab a hearty breakfast, before heading to the epicenter of glamour at Ramoji Film City. After you’re done wallowing in all the magic of the movie world, you can choose to go to Abid’s and shop for pearls and delicious Karachi biscuits. Overnight stay at the hotel.
With breakfast done, it’s time to see some more of Hyderabad’s timeless sights. First stop is the imposing Salar Jung Museum and its store of Hyderabadi artefacts. Glimpse more living history, in the shape of Charminar and Golconda Fort. A visit to Mecca Masjid and Chowmahallah Palace completes your day of time traveling. Overnight stay at the hotel.
After a farewell breakfast, you will still have time for any last minute shopping, before you depart to the airport/railway station en route home.
