Haryana’s second largest and perhaps the most talked about city, Gurgaon, has been spreading an urban and corporate vibe that has fascinated many young professionals and determined corporate workers throughout the country. Fast-paced developments, strong infrastructure and smooth expressways that connect the city to other major destinations make it an emerging cultural and tourist hub in India. Several multi-national companies have recently spruced up in sectors like Automobile manufacturing, real –estate sector and garment manufacturing. Although the rapid urbanization brings along with it shortcomings that the Millennium City is still struggling to triumph over, the city has successfully attracted natives from the neighboring states with its tall glass clad futuristic buildings and advanced entertainment options.

Gurgaon has been situated at an advantageous position from the capital of India, Delhi. International as well as the Domestic airport of Delhi are in proximity to the city. It is hence not surprising to find luxurious hotels and resorts around Gurgaon that act as a refreshing getaway for business as well as leisure travelers. The avant-garde city maintains its reputation by greeting its frequent and daily business travelers with 3 star and 5 star hotels that offer world-class facilities to satisfy the ultra modern needs of the tourists. One can find boutique resorts on the NH-8 highway that make it a perfect venue for tourists seeking a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nevertheless, most of the hotels cater to the business requirements of the travelers that offer conference facilities to host business meets and product launches.

Gurgaon is a home to the world’s most respected corporations that somewhat seem to add glamour and reputation to the city. One might visualize Gurgaon as a serious metropolis that only delights the go-getting professionals or blue collar workers. However, many people residing in Delhi frequently travel to Gurgaon during weekends considering it as the nearest source of entertainment. Huge shopping malls and musical concerts make it a much favored destination amongst the youth. Dining in Gurgaon can truly be a blessing for international as well national sightseers as the city is dotted with several fine dining establishments, English-styled bistros and classy pubs that make the nightlife full of zip. Being a welcome point for foreign as well as local travelers, Gurgaon brings in a quick respite for all those suffering from jet lag. With numerous drive-in and eating joints that offer cuisines like Mexican, Italian and Thai, Gurgaon makes sure to start one’s journey with sheer contentment.

The mini Singapore was once a farming village that hardly had any substance to be highlighted in popular media. However, with the changing times the metropolitan city has had a contrasting makeover that epitomizes galloping economy and an overall growth of the nation. Gurgaon seems to be in its growing age that is most vulnerable to sudden modifications primed by urban planners. For good or for bad, the coming years will decide!
