Travel to Hyderabad India

Hear about travel to Hyderabad India as the Amateur Traveler talks to Sean Whiting about the city he has called home for more than 4 years. Sean and his wife work at an NGO in Hyderabad.

Sean says, “I just think that India is worthy of your travel interests because there is so much distinction and so much difference in India. It really is so counterintuitive in many ways. The first time you come to India should probably be to the more traditional spots, the Golden triangle, Dehli and Agra with the Taj Mahal. and maybe if you’re going to be here an extended amount of time come down to southern India with Hyderabad as a jumping-off point. Even if you came back a second time, to experience southern India is so much different. It’s a lot less intense. It’s a lot more welcoming in some ways. If you came to India for the first time to southern India, you wouldn’t necessarily say it was chill, but it is in comparison to the north.”

Sean guides us to some of the traditional tourist spots in Hyderabad like the Golconda Fort, the Charminar, and the Chowmahalla Palace but also encourages us to spent time just exploring the countryside, just meeting the people and just sampling the food of southern India.

Hyderabad is both the home to a lot of high tech and modern Indian and also the home to the Palaces of the Nizam and the history of India.

“Every region of India is almost like its own different country. There are 28 states in India and almost all of them speak their own local language. National Geographic Traveler called Hyderabad one of the 20 best places to see in the year 2015. It’s known for its cuisine. It was never actually conquered or controlled by the British during the Raj.”

Janet asks about the enhanced version:

Hi Chris,

I love your podcast and like to use Apple TV to show the pictures in the enhanced version on my big screen TV. The details show up very well.
However, lately I have had trouble seeing the pictures. I hear the video fine. I typically use Downcast as my podcatcher but since I was having trouble with that, I decided to try iTunes. I have paid for the enhanced version through iTunes.
I can go to your website and can watch it there, pictures and all. I do like to download your excellent podcast for times when I don’t have Internet access, though.
Do you have any ideas for what I need to change to see the pictures?
I have watched some of your podcasts two or three times and want you to know how much I enjoy them!
Thanks for any help you can provide.
