Gurgaon, officially known as Gurugram, is a city in the Indian state of Haryana. Being part of the National Capital Region of India, it is often called the ‘Millennium City’ or the ‘Satellite City’ due to its high-rise buildings and huge commercial hubs and business centres. Originally a rural area consisting villages and farmlands, Gurgaon has seen rapid transformation ever since the leading Indian car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki established a manufacturing plant here, in the 70s. The city, now a leading financial hub, has the third-highest per capita income in the country.
Gurgaon, over the last few decades, has amassed a number of malls, pubs, hotels, and restaurants in its concrete outline. The Golf Course Road is one such stretch of eclectic microbreweries, eateries, lounges, and outdoor spaces, perfect for a fun night out. Despite its identity as a satellite city, Gurgaon hides an exotic secret under its cemented roof—the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary. Just 15 km from the city, the sanctuary is a great place to spot Siberian cranes, greater Flamingoes, cormorants, painted storks and more in their naturally vivid colours. Shopping is the trademark experience in Gurgaon. Pick up local handicrafts, fashion jewellery, and decorative products at Asian Handicrafts, or embark on a shopping expedition at the Ambience Mall that has over 200 international and Indian brands. Indulging in luxury shopping is made easy thanks to the Galleria Market in DLF Phase 4. The many cafes and outdoor sit-out eateries ensure the day is spent leisurely.
