For almost 200 years, Dacres Lane was the eating ground for sailors who came to Calcutta from various countries. Dacres Lane served as a platform where sailors used to hang around and exchanged tales of their voyages and heroics over the generous platters of food.

In the 19th century, after the British left India, the tradition has been since carried forward by the city’s fiercely food-loving residents. Dacres Lane is a must-visit for street food connoisseurs.

BBD Bagh - One of the prime business centers of the city, BBD Bagh sees a lot of businessmen flock to the street food stalls here for a quick lunch.

It was originally a mud fort under the reign of Rajah of Warangal. Later it was fortified between the 14th and 17th centuries by the Bahmani Sultans and then the ruling Qutub Shahi dynasty.

The inner fort contains ruins of palaces, mosques, and a hilltop pavilion, which rises about 130 meters high and gives a bird’s eye view of other buildings.

The Qutb Shahi: Tombs are located in the Ibrahim Bagh (garden precinct), close to the famous Golconda Fort in Hyderabad, India. They contain the tombs and mosques built by the various kings of the Qutb Shahi dynasty. The galleries of the smaller tombs are of a single story while the larger ones are two-storied.

Evening cooking demonstration with Indian family followed by dinner. Overnight stay at hotel.

Day 9: Hyderabad

Breakfast at the hotel. Post breakfast, proceed for half-day city sightseeing, visiting Salarjung Museum, Charminar, and Lad Bazaar.

Salarjung Museum: The Salar Jung Museum is an art museum located at Dar-ul-Shifa, on the southern bank of the Musi River in the city of Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It is one of the three National Museums of India. It has a collection of sculptures, paintings, carvings, textiles, manuscripts, ceramics, metallic artifacts, carpets, clocks, and furniture from Japan, China, Burma, Nepal, India, Persia, Egypt, Europe, and North America. The museum's collection was sourced from the property of the Salar Jung family, after whom it is named. It is one of the largest museums in the world.

Charminar: It is the principal landmark of Hyderabad City. It was built by Mohammad Quli Qutub to celebrate the end of a deadly plague in 1591 AD. The Charminar lies near the bank of the river Musi. It is close to Laad Bazaar and Makkah Masjid. Charminar is taken from two words Char and Minar which translate as Four Towers in English.

Later visit Laad Bazaar, which is located quite close to the Charminar which is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots of Hyderabad. Adjacent to the monument, the Laad Bazaar is stretched on four roads starting from Charminar and is spread across an area of one kilometer. Also, enjoy Irani tea and biscuits.

During lunch, enjoy Hyderabad's super famous Biryani with ultimate soft Kebabs. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. East Voyages believes actually the local delicacies are the signature meal of the respective place or shows their food culture and habit.

Biryani: rice cooked with meat with amazing seasoning enhance the taste and aroma of the food.

Also, be the witness of Bidri art during the old city area. Bidriware is a renowned metal handicraft that derives its name from Bidar, presently in Karnataka. It was believed to have originated in the 14th century AD during the reign of Bahamani Sultans. Bidriware is an eight-stage process.

Those are molding, smoothening by file, and the process of designing by chisels. It is then followed by engraving using a chisel and hammer where pure silver inlaying is done. It is subjected to smoothening again, followed by buffing and finally oxidizing by making use of soil and ammonium chloride. Bidriware is therefore manufactured from an alloy of copper and zinc metals, in the ratio 1:16 by means of casting.

After lunch visit Chowmoullah Palace, the seat of the Asaf Jahi Dynasty, and once regarded as the center of Hyderabad. The magnificent Chowmoullah Palace built over 200-years ago was the venue used by the Nizams when entertaining their official guests and royal visitors. Completed by Nizam Afzar-ud-Dawla Bahadur in 1869 but initiated by Nizam Salabhat Jung, the Palace took over 100 years to complete. Renowned for its unique style, which is a synthesis of many architectural styles and influences, this elegant Palace Complex has today been meticulously restored. (closed on Friday).

The evening is free to relax, East Voyages deliberately did not include the dinner to relax your stomach before you board an international flight. If guests would like to have some light dinner they can pay directly and have whatever they feel like to have.
