I am going to be in Hyderabad for a month (February) for work and would welcome any feedback and suggestions. I read this
thread but I have some more specific questions:
I am staying in Banjara Hills at the Taj Deccan. I will probably be getting home around 9pm on weeknights. Are there restaurants, etc., in walking distance that would be worth checking out, or should I stick to the hotels? Is it an area one can easily walk around in? How safe is a woman alone at night?
Are there any quick weekend trips worth doing, say leaving Sat and returning Sunday?
What should I see in Hyderabad itself?
I don't want to be too skittish about eating/getting sick, what are commonsense rules to follow?
What are tipping conventions for hotels, restaurants, cabs, tours?
Are there any guidelines I should follow in terms of dress?
I would also welcome any and all other tips. Thanks!
