Hyderabad VacationsIndia
The heartland of the Deccan Plateau and a bastion of classical Islamic culture in the Hindu South, Hyderabad (and its twin, Secunderabad) are a fascinating mix of Old-World and high-tech: people sometimes refer to the city as ‘Cyberabad’.

With the adventures of Mowgli in India’s jungle being adapted for the big screen next year, the introduction of a luxury cruise ship along the Ganges, and new hotel openings in offbeat locations, India remains a firm focus for 2015. Hyderabad, the ‘City of Pearls’ and capital of Andhra Pradesh, bathes in a rich royal history of opulence and elegance. The legacy remains today in the Old City, where enchanting bazaars, ornate mosques and private art museums vie for attention. The new Hyderabad is an eccentric collusion of old and new. The Gujarat remains the wild heart of India. Off the popular tourist trails, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi is surrounded by rural tribal villages, traditional textiles, unimpeded wildlife parks and sacred mountaintop temples. Witness here the daily beauty of rural India. Time your trip to one of the vibrant religious festivals for sheer Indian immersion. Luxury abounds at Taj Falaknuma Palace hotel, one of the finest palaces in Hyderabad. With ballroom, balustrades, candelabras and jade collection, a stay here is fit for royalty.

Part hyper-modern IT metropolis, and part medieval city, Hyderabad has some of the nicest people in India, and less of the hassle found in the subcontinent's bigger tourist sites. Excellent food (biryani & haleem, mmmm!) and lovely ruins at the medieval Golconda fort and the Tombs of the Qutb Shahi Kings, the city gets fewer visitors that its sights, food, bazaars, and people actually merit.
