There are many such amusement parks in Hyderabad and the author has brought in almost the best in the city in his article. Among the above five, my personal opinion is that Snow World stands apart as the best.
There is another good amusement park in the outskirts of Hyderabad towards Vijayawada. The exact location is on the Highway that goes to Vijayawada after Ramoji Film City before Chouttupal. The name of the park is Mount Opera and this is a very long existing park in Hyderabad. This is open for public on all days. It is good for a family to spend the time as a picnic spot on the weekend. Water games, parks and children's play areas are very good here. I had been to this park almost three years back.

Hyderabad is an ancient and historical place. There are many historical spots in the city. The author has mentioned some famous modern tourist spots (amusement parks) which people generally visit. But Hyderabad, the city of pearls, is known for its museums and foods. I feel that the Salar Jung Museum is the biggest attraction of this city. It is one of the biggest museums of India (developed by an individual).

I would like to mention some of the lesser known tourist spots of Hyderabad which the author has not mentioned. These are:-

(a) Mahavir Harina Vanasthali National Park: This park is located in Vanasthalipuram, located on the outskirts of Hyderabad city. A tourist can see different types of deer here including black buck and many birds.

(b) Raymond’s Tomb: The tomb was built in the memory of French General Raymond. Raymond’s Tomb is situated at Moosarambagh.

(c) Moula-Ali Dargah: This Dargah is built on a hilltop near Moula-Ali, at the north-eastern part of the city. From the hilltop, the entire city can be seen.

(d) 'Dialogue in the Dark' restaurant: Enjoying a delicious meal in this semi-dark restaurant is a remarkable experience.

(e) Sudha Car Museum: It is the first and only handmade car museum in the World.

In addition, many other tourist spots like Warangal, Humpi, Konneru, Badami, Belum caves, Kollery bird sanctuary, etc. can be visited from Hyderabad.

The delicious 'biryani' is one of the biggest attractions of the city. The non-vegetarians must not forget this delicious treat while visiting Hyderabad.

Congratulations to the author for this informative article. However, I would request him to write another article on the historical spots of the city. He can write an article exclusively on the Salar Jung museum.
