You're Going to Love Hyderabad

Big, sprawling Hyderabad is full of life; you can enjoy the bustle of a traditional market, head over to one of the city's many video gaming centers or an amusement park, and then finish off your day at a sleek fine dining restaurant.

Hyderabad serves as the capital city for the province of Telangana in Southern India. It's a center for India's burgeoning technology industry (earning it the nickname "Cyberabad"), and that's brought a cosmopolitan scene of dining, shopping, and entertainment options to the city. Hyderabad sees thousands of business travelers on a daily basis, but the high-tech giants like Microsoft India exist alongside a 400-year-old city center with a rich history and culture.

Hyderabad and Secunderabad were once twin cities, located at opposite sides of Hussain Sagar Lake. Today, the two have merged into one giant municipal area that blossoms out around the lake. From the office towers to the Old City and its many historical monuments, Hyderabad is waiting for you to discover its many charms.
