Living in Hyderabad

India is set to become one of the most important economies of the 21st century, and Hyderabad is one of the major economic centers driving that growth as the fifth-largest contributor to the country’s GDP. This huge city has a population of around 6.8 million and is the capital of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Dating from 1591, the city sits on the Musi River and is still known as the “City of Pearls” from its time as a diamond and pearl trading center. Today, that pearl industry has been replaced by finance, IT, manufacturing and research as major contributors to the city’s economy. Expats in Hyderabad can choose to live in traditional accommodation in the Old City to the south of the river or select a modern apartment in one of the more recent developments on the north banks. Chatting to other Hyderabad expats at InterNations will help you decide on the ideal neighborhood.

Moving to Hyderabad

Recent arrivals to Hyderabad will be charmed by the stunning ruins of the 16th century Golkonda Fort. The more modern Mandir Temple, meanwhile, stares imperiously from the heights of Naubath Pahad and was built in 1976 using 2,000 tonnes of white marble. There are plenty of places to explore in the city, which has been named as “Best Heritage City of India” by the Indian government. Expats moving to Hyderabad may arrive by the well-connected Rajiv Gandhi International Airport and they will find the city a major hub of India’s road and rail communications. Light rail and buses operate locally alongside the ever-present rickshaws. To the unprepared expatriate, living in Hyderabad could almost be overwhelming, but InterNations is an excellent resource to help you find your feet. With plenty of discussion boards and forums, it is the ideal place to find that vital information you are looking for.

Working in Hyderabad

Expats working in Hyderabad may be attracted by the large financial sector or the booming services industry. This latter is dominated by IT-enabled services, which are a major international employer in the city. Indeed, Hyderabad is home to more than 1,300 IT firms and boasts Microsoft’s largest R&D center outside of the USA. Other international firms in the city include Google, IBM, Yahoo! and Facebook. This international economy brings many expats to Hyderabad and makes the online InterNations platform a natural gathering place for the expat community in Hyderabad. On the discussion boards and forums, global minds can share ideas and experiences and connect with new people. InterNations’ Expat Magazine complements these features with articles and advice on various expatriation-related topics, e.g. how to best get settled in a new city.
