Andhra Pradesh enjoys the reputation of drawing a record number of domestic travelers every year, a status it will only redefine with the opening of a unique Buddhist style theme park at Nagarjuna Sagar. The state is also ready to increase its popularity with the opening of a giant wheel called Hyderabad Eye, built along the same lines as the world-famous London Eye which is a giant wheel with air-conditioned cabins where people can sit and dine.

Hyderabad Eye will be set up along the banks of the Hussain Sagar lake, the city’s most famous man-made water body which celebrates its 450th year of existence this year.  There are plans to develop floating restaurants and a night bazaar near Charminar which is known for silverware and pearls.

Other recent initiatives for tourism promotion include an increased endorsement of the State’s road-cum-river cruise, road-cum-rail, road-cum-sea retreat, road-cum-sea backwater cruise and temple package tour. Also known as the City of Pearls, Hyderabad is also famous for the Golconda Fort, the Laad Bazar and the fascinating Salar Jung Museum.
