Hyderabad forms a large metropolis with neighbouring Secunderabad and is a fusion of the traditions of northern and southern India. It has a strong Islamic influence from its time as the Nizamate capital, and many monuments from that period can be seen today in the Old City. The more cosmopolitan Secunderabad has more modern features like shopping malls and restaurants, but there are plenty of attractions across the whole city.
For an airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport has a remarkable little secret – it’s got a very eco-friendly ‘green’ policy.

Transportation and parking
For travellers flying with Qatar Airways from Chicago, the large D Parking provides short-term parking only (no overnight parking allowed). For long-term parking the best option are economy lots E, F and G.

There are plenty of taxi companies all specialising in airport runs, and the taxi ranks are located outside the main entrances to the terminals.

An eclectic blend of ancient and ultra-modern (Hyderabad is the Indian home of IT giants Google and Microsoft), this bustling city is a magnet for business travellers, and tourists who are looking for a destination that still retains its own individuality rather than a homogeny of predictable resorts and attractions. The result is a destination full of interest and energy.
Book a flight to Hyderabad with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a destination that hasn’t been over-sanitised but still holds onto that authentic Indian feel. It’s hot, busy, and the scent of spices is heavy in the air, making it a truly memorable and genuinely Indian experience.
Many of the sites and attractions are clustered into the Old City, the historical quarter of Hyderabad. Here you’ll find the stunning Charminar (literally ‘Four Minarets’), and the view of the city from the 48metre-high towers is breathtaking.
The Chowmahalla Palace at Khilwat is well worth a visit, while the Qutb Shahi Tombs have the iconic domed design that is instantly recognisable as a classic Indian architectural signature.
Golconda Fort is magnificent, and puts on a show-stopping light and sound display that tells the story of Golkonda against the dramatic backdrop of the fort itself. After a visit it’s well worth exploring the labyrinth of streets that wind their way around the base of the fort for some locally-made souvenirs and trinkets.
