Visakhapatnam has come a long way from being a tiny fishing village in the initial part of the 20th century, to a rapidly-developing port city in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Presently, Vizag (as it is widely known) is the biggest city in the state and has been added to the ‘Smart City’ project, apart from being the headquarters of the Eastern Naval Command. The city’s closeness to the Bay of Bengal gives it a tropical savanna kind of weather with average temperatures of 30°C. During the winter season, the temperatures are seen to drop, making the climate a lot more bearable. You can get to/from Visakhapatnam using four modes of transport (namely sea, air, rail, and road). Although Telugu is spoken by majority of the Visakhapatnam’s residents, most of them can also communicate effectively in Hindi and English. There are a good number of business hotels in Visakhapatnam designed to meet the accommodation requirements of business travelers on a daily/weekly basis. The best business hotels in Visakhapatnam are mostly situated in the vicinity of IT parks and business areas such as Rushikonda, Visakhapatnam Special Economic Zone (in Duvvada). Companies that are operating in Visakhapatnam include Tech Mahindra Ltd, PayTM, IBM, Franklin Templeton-Innova Solutions, and ACN Infotech. Usually, business hotels provide amenities such as free WiFi connectivity, (one or two) in-house conference rooms (with required facilities/machinery), are easily accessible and enable quick check-ins and check-outs. Business hotels, in general, also come with an on-site restaurant providing breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even when you’re visiting Visakhapatnam on business, you should check out some of its iconic tourist attractions such as Rushikonda Beach (the water here is pristine), Varaha Lakshmi Narasimha temple (located on top of a hill), Tenneti Children’s park (boasting view points and walkways), Thotlakonda Buddhist Complex (interesting for history geeks and followers of Buddhism), Hawa Mahal (having its own unique center for art), and Kondakarla Bird Sanctuary (where you can enjoy brilliant views and go on boat-rides in a water body strewn with lotus flowers). Organize a business lunch/dinner at restaurants such as Ming Garden, My Restaurant, Delhi Diner, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Welcom Cafe Oceanic Restaurant, The Eatery, and Eleven Restaurant.
