Celebrate the New Year with Nawabi style in Hyderabad. The city combines the fast-paced life of Hi-Tech City with the languid lifestyle of the Nawabs. Hyderabad bursts into a frenzy of partying as the New Year’s Eve approaches.

The best parties in town are held at Taj Banjara, the F Bar and the new breed of clubs Zouk and Poison. You will be surprised by the number of trance music aficionados in the city. Of course, every year, the biggest bash in the city is held at Hitex in Hi-Tech city featuring international DJs. Hyderabadis know how to welcome the New Year in style.

How can we neglect food when we are in the city of the Nawabs? Ohri’s in Banjara Hills and Pickles in Secunderbad offer all night service for the party hoppers. For a taste of the famous Hyderabadi Biryani head to Paradise, the restaurant which put the city on the international culinary map. If you want to sample authentic Andhra cuisine, then the surprisingly affordable Chutneys is the place of you. Rumour has it that superstar Chiranjeevi holds a Sunday brunch here every week. They even have a dosa named after him – Chiru Special. There are numerous kebab stalls dotting the city, though it is the Old City which offers the most authentic taste of Nawabi cuisine.

Hyderabad is a jewellary lover’s delight. You should hunt around in the Old City for the best bargains on pearls and semi-precious stones. Secunderabad is the place to buy the Andhra Pochampalli sarees. The Le Pakshi showroom in Secunderabad, managed by the Andhra Government, is the best place in the city to browse through local handicrafts.

History runs through the bylanes of Hyderabad. Its most prominent landmark is the Charminar in the Old City. Right next to it is the famous Choodi Bazaar with serpentine lanes lined by colourful bangle shops. The Chowmahalla Palace offers a glimpse into the bygone world of the Nawabs. This palace complex is now the venue for music and dance recitals in the city. The Golconda Fort is a reminder from the days of the Hindu rulers of the city, before it passed into the hands of the Asaf Jah dynasty.

The numerous lakes strewn through Hyderabad have given it the name of the City of Lakes. The modern identity of the city is showcased on the aptly named Necklace Road running alongside the Hussain Sagar Lake. The Durgam Chevuru in Hi-Tech city is popular with boating enthusiasts. The biggest movie studio in the country, Ramoji Film City, is located on the outskirts of the city. It is the ideal place to spend a day with the entire family. You can enjoy stunt shows, dance performances and learn the ins and outs of film making.

How to reach Hyderabad
By Air: The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad (40 km from city center) is connected to all the major cities in the country.

By Train: Hyderabad is an important railhead and there are daily trains linking the city to the rest of India. From Bangalore, the overnight Kachiguda express is a good option. The Hussainsagar Express runs daily between Mumbai and Hyderabad.

By Road: Overnight luxury Volvo buses ply between Bangalore and Hyderabad (552 km). Chennai (752 km) and Mumbai (753 km) are too far away for a road trip.
