Perhaps the largest city in the capital region, folks funnily refer to Vijayawada as New Jersey and Amaravati as the new Manhattan!! Vijayawada has been a major hub of all business, economic and commercial activities in the zone, proving to be a massive trading point, transport node and a prime seat of education. The population within the city has increased three fold in the past three decades. This is primarily due to the ever growing migrant population incoming from the rural areas.

A prime seat of agriculture, Nuzvid is also an educational center with many public schools and a IIIT campus.
Also popularly known as a temple town, Gudivada is a Mandal headquarter with more than 100,000 inhabitants! A prime junction for cities like Vijayawada, Machilipatnam, Nuzvid and Eluru as well. Also widely known for historic Buddhist Stupas, Jain relics and temples, Gudivada acts as a ground of fertile land for paddy cultivation mainly.
Located 35 kms away from Guntur, Sattenapalle is now slowly evolving into one of the main business hubs. Plans are on to set up two Hydel thermal power projects and one mini thermal plant soon. The town also has many schools and colleges.
Flaunting rich fertile lands and heavy agriculture base, Vuyyuru is always a hubbub of massive farming activities. The town is backed by a good irrigation system in place. Nation’s biggest brand, KCP sugar factory is located here. There are educational centers and temples within the town as well.

The present airport was actually a world war II Army airfield back in the day! Soon to become one of the biggest international airports, positively.
Gollapudi is called as a ‘Gateway of Vijayawada’. This is because of its close proximity to NH5 and the presence of industrial base at Rayanapadu.
