Who said enjoyment costs you dearly? Vizag is a wonderful place to enjoy on a budget. We give you ten things so amazing that cost under Rs.100. Collect all those friends complaining of a crunch and hop on. There may be some more ideas of course and we would love to know. Let’s get started.
1.Coffee date – Some of the best things happen over a coffee. Come on, you can have a cookie or a puff too. Head to cafes in town whose prices will not kill you. Best part you don’t have to compromise on the standards too. Sit back with a book or friends and enjoy. Relax solo and watch the crowds around. Don’t hurry.
Where? Pastries, Coffee & Conversation, Siripuram. A latte would cost Rs.50 and a super tasty egg puff Rs.30.
Where? Yallops, Siripuram. A coffee would cost Rs.60 and a veg puff Rs.25.
2.Street food indulgence – A heaven for street food lovers, Vizag’s street food is a definite choice among ten things. Punukullu, Muri-mixture, Corn, Noodles etc. The list is endless and so are the destinations. Go on. Bon Appetit. Don’t stop at one and you will still be left with some money to spare.
Where? Yummy Punukullus at MVP Colony near APS. Mirapakya Bajji at Krishna Chaitanya Matha junction.
Where? Muri-mixture, bhuttas, chats, pani puri etc at Beach Road. Cost approximately Rs.20-Rs.70.
3.Watch a movie – There is no written rule about enjoying a movie at a multiplex only. In Vizag you can enjoy the latest block busters and more for under Rs.100.
Where? Jagadamba Movie hall. Ticket price – Rs.70. Popcorn – Rs. 20.
4.Bargains – Bargaining at local markets is not always a fight. It’s enjoyable too. Hit the street side markets in and around Jagadamba and you never know what treasures you may find. A very good suggestion is the second hand book store in that area. Light hearted reads to books no more in print. You never know what turns up.
5.South Indian food indulgence – Tummy filling, satisfying and yummy, South Indian food fare will not burn hole in your pocket. Idlis, dosas, meals etc everything is so reasonably priced. Head out for a lunch or tiffins at any time.
Where? Venkatadri Vantilu. Idlis and Vadas at Rs.20. Ghee Karam Dosa at Rs.50.
Where? Sai Ram Parlor. Two can eat comfortably in Rs.100.
6.Museum trip – It always happens to the best travelers among us. We visit museums in other cities. We do not visit the museum in our own Vizag. We have the Visakha museum, Telugu museum and the submarine museum. Take a trip to enjoy and discover more about your own city.
Visakha Museum entry fee -Rs.10. Telugu Heritage Museum entry fee – Rs.20. Submarine museum entry fee – Rs.30
