- Since Nizamabad experiences tropical climate, it is usually hot for the better part of the year and make sure you are well equipped to beat the heat. Avoid visiting in the monsoon season.
- It is better to arrange a private cab and visit the tourist spots, since they are located outside the main town.
- Make sure you have enough information beforehand of wherever you go sightseeing or have a guide with you.
