Hyderabad, the capital city of Telangana attracts many visitors either as tourists or as part of its large workforce. Known for its tech-savvy and growing urban vibe, the city also has a unique and distinct culture.
Moving to Hyderabad either for work or to study is a great choice to begin a fresh chapter in your life and gain new experiences. However, moving to a new city isn’t always easy, from making new friends to looking for a place to stay and overcoming language barriers there are a multitude of things you’ll have to manage. To make life simpler and more comfortable here are a couple of things you should know before exploring PGs or Hostels in Hyderabad.
- One of the first things you should do is to get to know the local language, and for this, in the beginning, just learning some basic phrases which will go a long way in endearing you to the local people. This will help you, especially to interact with the local shop owners and rickshaw drivers to address your basic daily needs.
- While the city is well spread out, you should zero in on the choicest locations, so you don’t waste time on the commute. Kukatpally, Nizampet, Q City, Kondapur, Narsingi, etc. are some well-known locations where you can find branded, new-age accommodation options that take care of all your living needs. Managed accommodation options like Stanza Living have become very popular in the city owing to their vibrant residence spaces, all-inclusive rental packages that cover facilities like meals, laundry, WiFi, housekeeping, electricity, purified water, security, etc. so you can enjoy a hassle-free stay.
- The ideal place to spend time in the Old City, getting familiar with the history, the legacy, the sights, and smells that permeate to this day. The famous Charminar and its surrounding markets are a treasure trove for trinkets, antiques, cloth prints, and more. When in Telangana, don’t forget to pick up the delicately spun cotton garments which are apt for the hot and humid climate of the city – there are some upmarket boutique stores in areas like Kukatpally and Nampally where you can pick some beautifully designed cotton suits, sarees, shirts, etc for gifting as well.
- Hyderabad is famous for cuisine that offers the most wide-ranging options from the nawab-inspired biryani to the spicy Deccan delicacies. A filling lunch of Biryani is accessible in most places of the city, though Hotel Shadab hotel in the Old City and Sarvi Restaurant in the upmarket Banjara Hills are some of the must-try places. Getting authentic Biryani is one of the perks of living in a PG in Hyderabad. But did you know that if you choose to stay in managed accommodation like Stanza Living, you can easily access chef-cooked meals including their special regional dishes that take care of any Biryani cravings?
These are some of the things that would be good to know before moving to the PG in Hyderabad.
