Flights to Hyderabad, India, land at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (HYD), also called Hyderabad International Airport, a huge, modern complex conveniently located just under 15 miles south of the city. Hyderabad is the capital of Telangana state and, with a population nearing seven million, one of the most populous cities in the country. This historic pearl and diamond trading center is still known today as the City of Pearls.
There are a few Hyderabad hotels just outside the airport for exhausted travelers ready to hit the hay after their long Hyderabad flights. From here, you'll have easy access to the city and its surrounding region and all the attractions they have to offer. Heading into the city? Hop onto the air-conditioned Pushpak Airport Liner, which provides comfortable and quick transportation to more than 15 major destinations in Hyderabad. If you're traveling on the cheap, there's also a bus option without air-conditioning, but choose wisely—temperatures in Hyderabad have been known to top 110 on some days! Cabs are also available for those who prefer an express trip into the city or are venturing a little off the beaten path. There's so much to see, so catch your breath in your hotel and get back out there! Soak in the sunset and a view of the city from magnificent Birla Mandir, a Hindu temple built to honor Lord Venkateswara, or hike up to Golkonda Fort, the majestic ancient capital of the Golkonda kingdom. Ramoji Film City, the largest of its kind in the world, is a fun trip for those interested in the Indian movie scene.
