Known as the 'City of Nawabs', Hyderabad is the 500 year old capital city of Andhra Pradesh. The region is particularly known for its richness in culture and tradition and has recently earned the title of one of the fastest growing IT hubs of India, which is also why sometimes the city is referred to as 'Cyberabad'. The city was originally named Bhagyanagar, after the Sultan’s wife, Bhagamathi. Hyderabad is located on the Deccan Plateau which explains why most of its land is rocky in nature. A few places tourists must visit if in the city are Lumbini Park, Ramoji Film City, NTR Garden, Osman Sagar Lake and Mecca Masjid.
Buses have been a mode of transport most people opt for because of its easy availability and low fares. There are more 1200 bus routes available from Hyderabad that are covered by buses of different types, some popular types being Volvo AC, AC Seater, Volvo AC Sleeper, Non-AC Seaters and Non-AC Sleepers. Buses connect Hyderabad to most important cities close by. A rather easy option of booking bus tickets is doing it online and redBus allows you to do just that, promising to keep the process short, simple and safe. Also, you can print your tickets as soon as booking is complete.
Apart from Hyderabad itself being a lovely place to visit, the city is surrounded by a number of beautiful pilgrimage and heritage destinations as well as picturesque hill stations. These places are mostly within a distance of 300 km from the Andhra capital, making it possible to serve as getaway destinations for a vacation spanning even 2 days long.
