You get into the thick of things here. The best thing about this place would be that it is neither in the heart of the city, nor far away from it - wins either way.
Crowded, as any metro city would be.
The Metro has its station less than 2km away, and can take you comfortably to various parts of the city, including the airport, and is relatively inexpensive - highly recommended if you are travelling without heavy baggage.
Plenty of bazaars and restaurants within walking distance. The Forum Vijaya Mall, which many rate as the trendiest and most happening of malls in the city, though not the biggest, is easily accessed.
