Sightseeing spots, activities, eating-out options- there are so much to do in Hyderabad, so much to experience that by the time you actually finish listing down everything, you will be too confused where to start from and what to include. Cheer up, for its not that difficult. This sample itinerary will give you a fair idea on how to experience the best of Hyderabad.

Day 1

  • As soon as you reach Hyderabad, look around for a cab or a taxi and board it for your place of stay. After checking in and refreshing yourself, have a sumptuous breakfast that will compensate for the energy spent in travelling. Head to the heart of the city and join the Heritage Walk at the Charminar, that will combine sightseeing with a session on history. After that roam around the nearby market for a while and soak in the hustle and bustle of the city. Don’t forget Laad Bazaar’s colourful bangle stores for some Indian accessories.


  • Chutney’s, if you are a vegetarian and Paradise Food Court, if you are a non-vegetarian, will ease your growling stomach. Post-lunch, go for the evening light and sound show at the Golconda Fort. On the way back, if you want to end your day in serenity, a visit to the Osman Sagar or Husain Sagar lake will serve the purpose and if you are in a mood to let your hair down, 10 Downing Street or Liquids Again is the place to be.

Day 2

  • Start your day early and have a rejuvenating trip to the Mecca Masjid, the Birla Mandir or the St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Continue this rejuvenation with a little bit of royal touch at the Chowmalla Palace.
  • For lunch try the Urban Asia for Oriental cuisines or Veggies 365 for different types of thalis. Your body must be full of energy now. You can start making use of it with a walk inside the Shilparamam Village. Muse over the Rock Museum or simply choose a souvenir if any handicraft fair is happening.
  • On the way back, go for some shopping at one of the many high-end malls or at Abids Street. Choose your pick, pamper yourself or stroll around for a laid-back window-shopping. Shopping is always going to tire you out, in spite of the satisfaction. So, have a taste of Hyderabadi street food at Sindhi Colony or Madina.
  • After you reach your hotel, have a quiet in-house dinner and hit the sack early or visit the hotel’s bar for one last sip of the day.

Day 3

  • Time for some knowledge-enhancing session now! Start with Salar Jung Museum or the AP State Archeology Museum and as your brain kick-starts and gets hungry for more knowledge, a visit to the B.M. Birla Planetarium and Science & Technological Museum will be the ideal end to this treat for the mind.
  • Make your tummy happy with lunch at Prego’s or Basil and after the factual tour of the museums, go for a more creativity-filled one with the Gallery Space, Muse Art Gallery or Alankrita Art Gallery. You can choose to go for some pearls shopping after this, or catch a movie or roam around Secunderabad, as it is only 20 km from Hyderabad.

Day 4  

  • Ready for something different? Travel to Nanded, Warangal or Vijaywada- a few of the nearby destinations around Hyderabad. As you are already in the city, make the best use of it and try to explore other places also. Have lunch there, as in spite of being near to Hyderabad, these places, will have something different and unique dishes of their own.
  • Travelling to and for to these places will take up the whole day and by the time you return, you can go for a round of shopping, if you have missed out on anything in the list or for a night out to one of the swanky bars of the popular pubs in the city.

Squeezing in a little bit of your preferences and your taste and skipping out a few ‘ I am not sure about it’  will make this sample itinerary more personalised, convenient and more ‘you’. Whatever the result itinerary is, Hyderabad will be more than pleased to know that one more tourist has already made plans to visit it.
