Magic of the Net.

I received a mail from Sameer from London. He's a Punekar working in London. He's planning to come to Hyderabad and wanted some information.

So Sameer, if you're reading this blog, here's the info. that you enquired for.

Hi Sameer,

Good to receive your mail.

Sameer, nice to know that you may consider an offer from a Hyderabad based company.

To answer your questions,

Hyderabad is a very nice city. It is very clean as compared to other Indian cities. I would say it is one of the cleanest Indian cities.

If you're planning to join a Hi-Tech City based software company, then the best areas for you would be Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills which are upmarket areas.

For example, Jubilee Hills has Bungalows, with rents ranging from Rs. 7500/ to Rs. 15000/-

Banjara Hills has rents ranging from Rs. 5000/- for a 1 BHK to Rs. 12000/- plus. Banjara Hills has bungalows as well as Apartments.

These two areas are on the higher side. They are the best areas to stay in Hyderabad.

Nearer to Hi-Tech City, Madhapur is a good area. It was on the outskirts of Hyderabad, but now, it has expanded a lot and lots of houses are available on rent in and around Madhapur. Madhapur is comparatively cheap with Rs. 7000/- to Rs. 8000/- good enough for a Three Bedroom House!!!

Madhapur would be a good area if you're interested in a place near your office. It would be say 10-15 mins. from Hi-Tech City.

Hi-Tech city itself has two part, one comprises of the twin buildings, a kilometre apart of Cyber Towers and Cyber Gateway. Beyond that, say a kilometre or so, are the Madhapur Software Technology Parks which house the offices of lots of Software Companies.

Pune to Hyderabad is an overnight journey by Bus and Train.

By Regular Bus it takes about 12/13 hours. Same as a Train. There are frequent trains and buses from Hyd to Pune and vice-versa.

By Flight Pune to Hyd is about an hour or so.

The best way is to catch an evening Volvo A/C. Bus (Ticket range is between Rs. 600 to Rs. 800/- depending on the season) and reach Pune early in the morning on Saturday and similarly catch a late-night Volvo A/c. Bus from Pune and reach Hyd. on Monday morning.

Hyderabad is a very clean city, especially, if you're around Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills and other areas, you will really appreciate the wide, clean roads and the greenery.

Everyone understands Hindi in Hyderabad. I haven't felt the need to learn Telugu.

Regarding food, if you're a Rice Lover :-) then you're in for good times!!!
Hyderabad is popular for its Biryani.

Besides that there are lots n'lots of eating places, new restaurants opening every other week, new malls coming up and food is not at all a problem.

If you prefer North Indian food or plain roti-sabzi-dal-chawal then there are Dhabas around Madhapur where you may eat or else there are lots of restaurants around Madhapur, Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills that offer different cuisines like Punjabi, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Andhra Meals etc.

Hope this helps.
