Hyderabad, India's fourth biggest city, is fast becoming one of the most exciting visitor destinations in the country. Its booming tech scene is attracting global attention and transforming this ancient city into a cosmopolitan hotspot. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Discover Colombo: https://youtu.be/4COeTrjB6hA Discover Buenos Aires: https://youtu.be/q0pMg6rvc0s Discover Miami: https://youtu.be/sCi4FBN-7dA Discover Oaska: https://youtu.be/cNIrkT3WB24 Discover London: https://youtu.be/mIEsgVd17v8 Once home to the richest man in the world and the center of the global diamond trade, Hyderabad is full of hidden gems - you just have to know where to find them. Three passionate locals are about to take you on a tour of their city, revealing the secret spots where you can experience the real Hyderabad. If you want to capture the vibrancy, colour and sounds of Hyderabad you’ll need to get up early just like the flower merchants of Gudimalkapur flower market. As flowers are an integral part of Indian life—this market attracts buyers and sellers from across the region. It's also a favourite spot for keen photographers. Saurabh has taken his love of photography one step further and now shares it with visitors by running photowalks. By joining Saurabh it's a chance to see this city and its people through a very different lens. So called ‘Cyberabad’ is the home to Hyderabad’s flourishing Tech and Startup community. The ambition is to create India’s answer to Silicon Valley—and it’s fast attracting a young cosmopolitan crowd. But when Srinivas has business visitors he doesn’t take them to the newest parts of town. He takes them to the oldest. The street markets of Charminar in the old city have been the beating heart of Hyderabad for four hundred years. This was the centre of the world's diamond and pearl industry during the time of the Nizam's who ruled over Hyderabad from 1724 to 1948. The diamond industry may have moved on, but the pearl trade is still alive and well giving the city its moniker "The City of Pearls", attracting buyers from around the world. Since arriving in Hyderabad 13 years ago Jonty decided to set up her own business taking people to the true heart of the city, and a place where most travelers never get to visit - the authentic Indian kitchen. Home dining is becoming very popular with travelers but here at Usha’s they don't just come to eat but to learn the secrets and skills of Hyderabadi home cooking. This is no five-star restaurant but it offers visitors an even rarer experience - the opportunity to really see how the locals do it. The Falaknuma Palace Hotel used to be the royal guest house for the richest man in the world Osman Ali Khan, the last Nizam ruler. For those in the know, tea here comes with a personal tour with the resident historian. At the top of Moala Ali Hill is a 16th century dargah - a Muslim shrine. The dargahs reputed healing properties turned it into a pilgrimage site and countless devotees climb the 500 steps to the top. But praying in Hyderabad isn’t all about quiet contemplation — it’s a chance to party too. And with over 50 religious festivals in the calendar year there’s always an opportunity to get involved. Every neighbourhood will hold its own festivities. And for Jonty, it’s the best way to immerse visitors in the Hyderabad street scene. It may seem overwhelming but If you want to properly appreciate these festivals, there’s only one thing for it - leap right in. Some of the most popular festivals last for up to eleven days. ___________________ Passport is an original travel series for the intellectually and culturally curious, exploring some of the most exciting city destinations in the world. The insiders’ guide to each city follows at the shoulder of three local characters as they reveal the experiences and places not covered in the guidebooks.

It's a shame, that The Economist has blown up its reputation through a MISLEADING compilation like this. The contributions of Muslims has been skirted off quite cunningly throughout the video. Shameful!

After watching this video, the real HYDERABADI wonders...let's make a video of London and get the Indians and Pakistanis to explain London. A very low standard job. This one.

Abdul Quader (1 month ago)
Utter nonsense this is, Economist!!! No mention of biryani or haleem, no interaction with a Hyderabadi. No slang used from Hyderabad, no Telugu filmed properly. No mention of Bathukamma, no mention of Ramazan in Hyderabad. You get a travelling photographer, a women who was brought up in the north, a man, whose accent look like he has studied somewhere other than India..... Where is the essence of Hyderabad? You portrayed Andhra cuisine, no mention of Hyderabadi Masalas... What is wrong with your planning team? TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
Sandeep Streamer (7 days ago)
Abdul Quader yes
Syed akbar (1 month ago)
Thank you for the video! But, whatever you have shown was just a glimpse of Hyderabad. Tons of crucial information was missng and several facts were distorted in the video such as Chaminar diamond market (it was Golconda), Showing Andhra food (where is Biryani?), P & M Bar. Really!!! the video was more like an promotional video of the venues shown. And the people who are exploring the city are not at all have much knowledge about Hyderabad. Next time if you think of making something like this, than consider someone local 'a real local' who could show you a real hyderabad and hyderabadi's.

Suraj Kumar (1 month ago)
Mr Nadeem sharrif, history cannot be changed according to your likes and dislikes. Go the Archives or visit the Wikipedia, scores of Hindus were Butchered by the razzakars on the streets of Hyderabad. Rizvi was a murderer, wonder how he was allowed to go to Pakistan. He should have been tried for war crimes. Nizam allowed this genocide, hence he was a part of this crime. Hands of Nizam is full of Hindu blood.
naadeem sharif (1 month ago)
+Suraj Kumar brother dont say what u dont know what qasim rizvi did he gets punished nizam loved by his country hindu people, he nizam treated equally everyone with love and respect read history and plz dont be a travel agent ye mulk hamara tha hamara hai aur hamara rahega.(READ REAL HISTORY OF INDIA COMPLETELY THEN SAY I DONT WANT TO ARGUE MORE TAKE CARE HATE LESS BE HAPPY)

Nizam was responsible for genocide against Hindus. His dog Mr.Rizvi was deported to Pakistan. If you want you can also leave.

One word for your coverage- 'Underwhelming' . A weak attempt to rechristen Hyderabad. it can be anything but cosmopolitan. The Three Passionate Locals @0:39 aren't that passionate at all in their job! ( I doubt if they are even local!) This isn't Hyderabad. Ganesha festival isn't big here, Bathukamma, Bonal, and EID are. Where's the cuisine? Lol. People gorge the famous Biryanis, Chais, Bakeries...The diversity of Old & the New City and the green patches...nothing that's shown here reflect the bustling city, Hyderabad.

+Harsh Kulshrestha But you'll still agree that Hyderabad is best represented by Muslims, because of its Muslim History, Cuisine & Culture, right?

The food she is showing at 8:45 is not the authenticated diet of local hyderabadies. They are showing the culture which settlers have developed . Hyderabad daily diet jowar rati,gehu roti and chawal sarvappa,bakshalu,jaggery rice and many eatables with rice Special sweet for lord hanuman which we do on hanuman jayanthi and special sweet for lord mallanna who is believed to be avatar of lord shiva. Birayani and haleem ,(kaddu khar kheer,kubani kha meeta,double kha meeta are some famous hyderabadi deserts) Tea is special in hyderabad with osmania biscuit

Syedz Ahmed (2 months ago)
being a hyderabadi and without being biased to my city... Hyderabad is the most peaceful city in India with love and respect amongst all people irrespective of religion caste and creed. Love affection humour and less hard-work😉 is part of Hyderabad. I m speaking in general and not just for old or new city of hyderabad. On one side you would see a different nawabi style and another the modern progressive side of city. And most important aspect is Food with the most reasonable prices with the quantity and quality compare to any city in India.

I am from Nizamabad which is 150 kms from Hyderabad towards north. Honestly speaking Hyderabad is not a good place to live now, people are not good they always try to scam you. It's bit cheaper than other cities but no jobs even if you find a job they pay very less. There is no proper transportation heavy traffic auto guys are rude and in local Citi busses you have to board by running and flying. Enjoy Hyderabad!

I know you are in the disguise of a hyd guy but actually not, check your comment above . software companies are not fools to pay fake guys and anybody with fake skills cant survive . Faking is common among most people irrespective of states . I saw more fakes from many other cities like delhi bombay chennai bangalore etc. That does not mean all are fake. Hyderabad produce more IIT students than any other city. So don't generalise a particular city or state as fake people everywhere irrespective of state or city .

No I am from Hyderabad. It is the 5th richest city of the country in terms of GDP. BTW, you are from which state?
