well..regarding travel you will get enough suggestions from people who are living thr. I have spent around three years..my suggestion is dont miss its food. Hyderabad offers most varieties and foods..its more of food capital in south.

Dont forget going to old hyderabad, you will get to eat some delicious lamb/chicken/dhabha-style dishes.
In hyderabad, you can have biryani at Paradise or babarchi.That is actually a must for anyone visiting hyderabad.
Sat/sunday breakfast is best at chutneys near nagarjuna circle. Its little expensive but you get very nice snacks/breakfast.
If you fancy italian, plan a meal at little italy in jubilee hills. If you like chinese, mainland china and nyan king are best. Nyan king is real classic old restaurent offering good quantities and economical. Downside is thr service is slow n you might face little rudeness of staff.
Pubs/discs include firangi pani/liquids near taj krishna, 10 downing street in begumpet and bottles n chimneys in secunderabad.
Hope that helps, good luck!

Went once a few years ago, very poor shadow of the Universal Studio Tour in Hollywood.

I am told it has improved, though.

Salar Jung has some amazing artifacts, but I was disappointed with the way they were displayed. A priceless piece of history shouldn't be screwed onto a piece of plywood with a strap of aluminum, while being illuminated by a 40 watt lightbulb.

A big plus on that. Actually this is about it for casual tourism in the twin cities. The museum was a disappointment. Maybe they have improved it since. The science museum worse. Eating is the big thing there. There are a lot of antiquities but these take some sussing out. Gun factory is more or less fallen down, etc. The Faluknama Palace should be worth seeing. Charminar can be done in a few moments. The old city sari shops are very interesting. I like to picnic on Osmania College. The APTDC operates tours from the maidan side of Paradise. If you have a bit of time you could do one of their short tours to nearby locales..

Salarjung is must see ! Allot at least a half day to this.

Char Minar and near by colourful markets are very beautiful.
