Faridabad Tourism

In the current times when powers in the virtual world are at par with those in real life, everybody wishes to work in this sector. And then, the IT hubs of our country come in the picture! In this virtual era, IT parks play a great role, and the cities having IT parks are given a lot of importance and are preferred by thousands of people to live and work. One such place is Faridabad falling in the National Capital Region(NCR). It is growing at a very fast rate. Situated near Gurgaon, it is turning into Gurgaon quite quickly. Even though there are families living over there for ages now, it is mostly inhabited by the working professionals of some or the other IT firm. 

Aiming to become north's Silicon Valley, Faridabad is also full of tourists in the spring. The winters, as well as summers here, are quite harsh, thus, spring is a very good time to be in Faridabad. Since it is visited by a lot of professionals regularly, there are a lot of recreational activities available. Just like any city can be broadly categorized into two, one before the development, and one after the development, Faridabad is also divided into two parts, Faridabad and Ballabgarh. Ballabgarh is more like the older version of Faridabad, before development.
