Cheap Student Flights to Hyderabad
Hyderabad is a bustling city in India affectionately known as the City of Pearls. Hyderabad managed to keep its culture and history preserved all while becoming a sprawling metropolis. There is an even mix of historic landmarks that date back over 400 years and then the newer technology-boom additions to the city—there are chic restaurants, shopping centers, impressive modern architecture and nightclubs for tourists. To top it all, StudentUniverse has made it easier for you to experience this amazing city with our super cheap flights to Hyderabad.
The city is split into five zones—all different experiences—but tourists most often explore South and Central. The South Zone (also known as the Old City) will give you the best taste of traditional Hyderabad. You can see many of the historical sites and experience the lively street-stall shopping culture here. The Central Zone has more upscale dining and entertainment to enjoy on a night you wish to splurge. The other zones are where many call home.

Tips on flying to Hyderabad
Top Airlines flying to Hyderabad: Emirates, a past winner of StudentUniverse’s Best Airline for Students Award, accounts for nearly 40% of flights to Hyderabad and is the leading airline in the city’s international airport. StudentUniverse also has partnerships with popular airlines such as Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, British Airways and Cathay Pacific to get you to Hyderabad at the most convenient time and price for you.
Getting around Hyderabad: Hyderabad is notorious for its traffic congestion, so figuring out your means of transportation ahead of time is a good idea. Hyderabad Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) is the city’s public transportation system which consists of various bus routes and a light rail system that can hopefully help you avoid some traffic. There’s also a high quantity of auto rickshaws on the streets for quick transportation. Be sure to try and talk the price of your ride down with your driver—make your own student discount!
Places to visit in Hyderabad: The historic Charminar mosque, built in 1591, is a beautiful landmark that exemplifies impressive Islamic granite architecture. Be sure to climb one of the mosque’s towers. The Golkonda Fort dates back to the 1600s and provides a great view of Hyderabad for tourists who climb up to the ruins. The unique lights and sound show explains its history with entertainment. The Ramoji Film City is an amusement park and studio complex with plenty of thrill rides, shows and activities. The Salar Jung Museum is one of the largest art museums in the world that has everything from paintings to ancient furniture.
Food in Hyderabad: If there is one dish that you have to have on your trip to Hyderabad, it is Hyderabadi Biryani. This beloved mixed rice dish is eaten whenever: breakfast or dinner! While there are plenty of restaurants to try authentic Hyderabadi cuisine, street stalls are also a great and cheap way to try countless famous dishes. Haleem is a popular stew, and the best of the best can be found right at street stalls. Chicken 65 is another must have, a spicy deep-fried chicken that can be the whole entree or just a topping of one. Just like the transportation in this city, it is always best to try and bargain with merchants who try overcharging students and tourists.
