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.

Historically, linguistically, culturally, politically, religiously, Hyderabad is more Muslim than any other Indian City
You simply cant show Hyderabad without a Hyderabadi Muslim who speaks Urdu as your host😅
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
99% comments are about Two things only -
1) not finding any Telugu speaking in video, and
2) video is fake because no Hyderabadi biryani is mentioned in the video
this shows how much these south Indians obsessed with identity crisis, hahahahahahaha, they want to show and prove their uniqueness in every fucking petty points... but remember real cultures not need to prove anything they just prevail and bloom.
PS: i am from south too
stop putting ur fucking agenda on other religions, we also kill goats and animals on Eid, it cause land pollution and disturb biological ecosystem and food web chain, if someone say this to us then?
people like u are insult on our islam : and ues i am not fcking muslim radical or hindu radical like u got it
Thank you "The Economist" for a wonderful presentation of our city Hyderabad.. You could've added some more like Hyderabadi biryani, Bathukamma festival and some more visiting places like Golconda fort and other monumental attractions with rich history in hyderabad. But anyways thanks for bringing it to the world ..
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!
Many marathi,north , bengalis working in hyderabad and hyderabad is like mini india, you have pharma, biotech,IT and many service sector companies there,even few of my friends working in bangalore chennai pune moved back with good offers because hyderabad is best compared to other cities in terms of cost,security,best schools, good infrastructure etc. just because you are not getting job does not mean city don't have jobs. Many like you there in bangalore, chennai, pune,mumbai. you guys have to try until you succeed.Even i struggled a lot to get my first job.
You guys literally focused on everything not unique to Hyderabad. Ganesh is from Bombay, the food you showed was Andhra cuisine, the bars??? No one comes to Hyderabad for its bars. Where was the Biryani, Golkonda, actual Hyderabadi culture????
+UTKARSH BHATNAGAR thats what india is ..the per capita is amongst the lowest. the city dewllers need to look beyond and see the real poor india. Indians who live in city and pretend to be live in first world country are ignorant bunch.
Good video and nice concept. Except, that haggling at 5:55 mark looks totally fake. No Indian haggles like this. It's an art form - a brutal game of chicken to see who blinks first. The one in the video is laughably sanitized
#LOVED this travel documentary so much... this is how travel docus should be... most others only reduce themselves to "Poverty Porn" in India.. without capturing the full spectrum of how the poor, the middle-class & the rich live in India. It also showed the incredible depth of culture that exists in Hyderabad.
+Syedz Ahmed Bhai ja or 1 baar scche Dil se Apne oyare Islam or Muhammad k upper research kerle, jyada time nhi lgega .

+Ràñdøm H!T are bhosdike tera amma ko behen ko gali dena nahi chahta hu tujh jaise fasadi bhagwa ko paida kiya wahi sabse badi gaali hain aur na hi main tere jaisa tere bhagwan ko gaali dunha harami bhosdike. Mohammed SAW ke naam pe jaane se humara khoon ubaalna bandh karde bhosdike warna jo hoga woh tujh jaise harami bardasht nahi kar payenge bhagwa saale
+mihir shah if no one speaks hindi in Andhra, then why it's offical language. The purpose of offical language is to tell the people of the state, about government schemes and policies. So don't check namo app. Come, face the ground reality. Even Chandra Babu Naidu, Cheif minister of Andhra doesn't speak hindi. Lol
+UTKARSH BHATNAGAR I was there in Chennai for two months for my training. There I learnt Tamil script. I can read and write Tamil. I had to move to other place, so I missed learning it completely. I try to learn the state language in which I stay. Not like you North Indian, going everywhere and imposing Hindi
Hyderabad is nice that it isnt a tourist nightmare like other cities where people are trying to sell or swindle you out of money. Its good if you want a normal relaxed life in india where things dont cost as much compared to other cities.
Nambi Narayanan let's fact check that, retarded dumbass. Over 200million people care more about pakistan hydrabad then indias, and more than 1.5 million people live there. So I'd say a bunch of people care more about pakistan hydrabad then indias. 🤣🤣. DUMBASS!!
Beautiful city with delicious/affordable food and lifestyle with stable and freindly government , moderate/pleasant weather...non seismic/non cyclonic..good law and order...no bias on caste creed region religion and colour, affordable Living... vibrant culture and so on....what else u need.
+Noor ZäîñäB Hyderabad was known originally as Bhagyanagar, a city Sultan Muhammad Quli of the Qutub Shahi dynasty had founded and named after his beloved Bhagmati or Bhagyamati in 1590.Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah of the Golconda Sultanate, named it after Bhagmati, a local nautch (dancing) girl with whom he had fallen in love. She converted to Islam and adopted the title Hyder Mahal. The city was named as Hyderabad in her honour after that
+Vikas Kyatannawar is should be change ofcourse, why would a city be name after a fucking ruler.. give back its ancient name, i think u r slave by mind. i am hydrabadi and i suport name change back to old one
Living in Hyderabad since 7 years. This city used to be great. Now it has grown to have terrible traffic, ton of BS institutions like THub, and increasing number of greedy violent people. Hope to shift to a better place in a year.
Average city with miserly and extreme money minded local population, both gultis settled from elsewhere and Urdu speaking Muslims. Traffic management is a joke and no good bus connections. Driving has always been an hellish task anywhere in India but this city takes it to next level with its extreme chaotic and arrogance. People on bikes race and go against the traffic at all places and traffic police play candy crush on their phones. People have to run behind auto guys and sometimes beg them to take you. Ameerpet is world famous for churning out fake experience letters and even degrees which the local US consulate runs multiple checks. In US recruiters too know this fake degree+experience mill and they are on alert if they find local Hyderabadi colleges and companies in resumes. On plus points about this city is that cost of living and rent/food expenses are relatively low compared to other metros. Another good feature is that locals welcome you unlike Chennai. Food is the best selling point of this city and kudos to them for making it tasty and affordable even though it’s not healthy on a long run. Almost every educated guy wants to get his US visa by hook or crook and that gets this city a bad name in US. This is most probably paid promotion by one of the bald heads you saw in video with fake US accent who have returned home after minting dollars and buying property 15 years back. They now need sheep to buy these startup “incubator “ hubs from VC fund guys. Good con show guys, keep it rolling!
You are one of those sour grapes burning with ego of telugus success. Fakes resume guys everywhere from north to south ..dont generalize one place. Tell me your city name then i tell the truth about people there and your city traffic etc. No city in india is immune to traffic or crime or whatever negative points you mentioned here. If you are a rational thinker, you cant just generalize a city or language or people. By the way from your language i understand you too from south and only south people address telugus as gultis . you have more issues in your so called cities than hyderabad i feel. So we are still in india and every city india is not immune to those issues.
I know that bus transportation is worst in Hyderabad but there is good connectivity. There is other way of transport the uber, ola other than auto rickshaw. There was news that the govt transitioning the buses to E vehicles. i think its gonna take time. yeah there is recklessness in the drivers as well that is because the Road transport Department system is fully corrupted people get licenses just by paying extra money. with out any test on the road safety and moral rules but the practical test is must.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
