Sent your wishlist of favourite chocolates and electronics to your fam living abroad months ago? Well, it’s almost time for them to come home and you need to pamper them a little extra too. In case you're in no mood to plan extensive trips and just want to enjoy the laid back life of the City Of Nizams, we have the perfect itinerary for you! Here’s a list of things you cannot miss while back in the city with your family! The same old Hyderabad feels, just with added panache.

1. First Stop, Food and Drinks, Always.

Give your family a larger-than-life welcome with only the best in the city. Dine at the Jewel Of Nizam, The Golkonda Hotel to gorge on delicious authentic Hyderabadi cuisine with a view that overlooks lush greens and the city. The Minar feels like straight out of a fairytale, great food, and luxurious setting ensure a great time! Another favorite being, Hyderabad’s iconic Taj Falaknuma Palace and dive deep into a bespoke gourmet experience at Adaa. Listed as one of the top 50 restaurants in India, the place gives you a beautiful sneak peek into Nizam life. The food is slowly cooked with the rarest ingredients from across the country like Kashmiri saffron and velvetier root. Yes, the place is a little on the higher end, but isn't a welcome supposed to be grand?

4. Bask In The Glory Of Chowmahalla Palace

A day spent amidst the grandeur of Chowmahalla Palace. Get dressed up to get those artsy, instagrammable pictures next to vintage cars and royal gates. The palace is an amalgamation of  Persia, Rajasthan, Europe, and Indo-Saracenic styles. Walk along courtyards brimming with lush greenery, ornate fountains and bask in the glory of darbars that stand tall on the iconic stories they bare. Dotted with paintings, royal portraits, the opulent corridors are home to pictures. Do check out the Khilwat Clock that is over 100 years old and visit the garage to gawk at the pristine 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost once owned by the royal family. 

5. A Short Trip To Rewind.

Get in a car for a quick escape to rewind and chill with your favourites at UNESCO World Heritage Site Hampi. The ruins of Hampi have enchanted visitors for centuries. After a day of touring, visit the Hampi Bazaar for bargain shopping. Stay at the luxurious Heritage Resort Hampi for the night. Spread across 8 acres of land, this stunning space gives great opportunities for relaxation —  rest under a Banyan tree while listening to birds sing or take Insta-worthy photos as you explore the property.

6. A Day Of Exclusive Hyderabad Quirks

The next on our list is taking a trip down to Nimrah cafe and gorging on Hyderabadi biryani! The cafe is more than 25 years old and is famous for its Iranian chai and Osmania biscuits. People line up in  front of the place, no matter day or night making it something you can't miss on your trip here! Take a stroll down to the Mecca Mosque, one of India’s oldest mosques. Also remember to drop by Karachi Bakery to fill up on some of your favourite confectionery like fruit cakes and biscuits. 

7. Hyderabad Is A Food Lover’s Paradise

But first, biryani. Say the word, ‘biryani’ loud enough in the city - either people get hungry or there’s an argument that breaks out discussing where the best biryani really is. So we found out a few:  Mutton biryani at Paradise, Kacchi Dum Biryani at Jewel of the Nizam - The Minar, The Golkonda, Mutton Biryani at Chicha’s and the iconic Bawarchi Restaurant that does biryani like none other.  You also have to try Hyderabadi Haleem at Sarvi, and Hyderabadi Marag at Zaiqa-E-Hyderabad. Don’t forget to try Qubani Ka Meetha: dried apricots topped with dry fruits and ice cream!
