Hyderabad

I was commenting on this post, and realised there was a full post in there, not just a comment! So here’s my own list of five things-to-do in Hyderabad – apart from the ones Kunal’s already suggested!

  1. Visit Birla Mandir as the sun is setting. Sit on the marble steps eating the pieces of coconut they hand out, and watch the lights in the city.
  2. Climb up the Charminar and try and identify the buildings you can see – the Mecca Masjid, the Chowmahalla Palace, the Unani Hospital…
  3. Tank Bund – walk up and down eating ice cream and roasted corn on the cob. Watch people, or the lights in the city, or just the water beside you.
  4. Eat button idly and pesarattu upma at Taj Mahal Hotel in Nampally – not the new ‘Wah Taj!‘ cafe, but the old Taj Mahal Hotel.
  5. Chaat at the (no longer) little place in front of the Balaji Grand Bazaar (I hope I have that name right) in Basheerbagh.

I could make a tag of this, couldn’t I? Ok, then – @, Amateur Blogger, Mr. Nair, Chinmayi, Shreya – name five things to do in your respective cities (not typical touristy stuff!), tag five people and leave them a comment to know they’ve been tagged!
