The Silicon valley of India with an office from nearly every major software company in the world. Tourist attractions are the Vidhana Soudha Assembly Hall, Cubbon Park - reminiscent of NYC's Central Park, Lal Bagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore Palace, Wonderla water park and Nandi Hills.
A lot of other beautiful picnic locations spread around that are accessible from Bangalore like Talakadu, Shivanasamudra Waterfalls, Mekedhatu, Chennapatna etc. A shopping hub as well boasting of most of the biggest names in fashion.
Bengaluru is a busy city with so many things going around at once. Felt that the daily life seems hectic for the residents but for holiday makers it will be fun to explore the city that has multi cultural, fashion, shopping, food and entertainment well set.
The garden city has a lot to offer for any traveller,right from historical monuments(vidhana soudha)blore palace,national park(bannerghata)great parks(lalbhagh,cubbon)pubs(lots)variety of food,and a friendly crowd plus lots of malls.
A blend between the old time and the modern. Still building the modern day city infrastructure. India being India has its charm but it'll take sometime to build toward a stable economy, both for the locals and foreign investors.
Traffic can be bad at some parts of the city and one can not be in a hurry.
DO NOT GO TO BANGALORE ! YOU WILL REGRET IT. From the attractions, to the people, food, quality of living, cleanliness, and every topic to pass judgment on - was poorly organised, terribly gross and seriously screwed up.
As a woman travelling alone, I would suggest do not go to India unless you have some kind of tour with fellow English speaking tourists booked. I had the shock of my life, got sick and came home. I will never go back alone, and definitely not backpacking.
very nice, riksha drivers will ask more money,before start the travelling request them to put meter always check google map,if u have a smart phone and internet connection
There is constant building and development going on, but this really has a more calm feel than the other major cities in India: Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, and Kolkata.
There is more on offer in terms of nightlife and shopping, and the city is fairly compact and easy to navigate.
Bangalore is wonderful city to visit, but you must be prepared for garbage everywhere on streets,and there are numerous poor begging for food and money daily.
Traffic is horrendous and plan on lots of time to get to destination by tuc tuc or cab. The wild dogs population is bad too.. lots roaming around in poor health conditions. You have to be very open minded to look past trash and building conditions and just enjoy the smiling lovely friendly people of India...
A clean city with much to offer in terms of shopping. However prices are high as Dehli. Not much sightseeing, unless you plan a trip to Mysore (3hours).
I loved the various ethnic populations met there. Truly a mix of Indians. Friendly people, very few beggars and overall a safe city with nightlife.
While Bangalore is obviously getting more crowded with more migrants from other parts of India, the cosmopolitan nature of the city keeps growing.
What is on offer for dining, nightlife, hospitality, and any other trip- related ventures is improving each day and after each visit. There is something for everyone and the city still maintains it's inherent place as a more relaxed metro in India, especially compared to places like Mumbai and Delhi. It is also very clear that there is competitive, yet positive landscape in all aspects of fun and hospitality in Bangalore, which is allowing for different parts of the city to show off their establishments- such as very good restaurants in Koramangala, Indiranagar, JP Nagar. It is no longer necessary to just count on the 5- star hotels to deliver on quality service.
It's a nice transit area to visit other better places in India due to international airport. The real essence of India is quite absent though
busy city, nice and decent people, less horn usage compared to mumbai, good food, bottom line: i would like to visit banglore again in future
is a city of IT. People are more educated than the north. easy to communicated. Food wise not a problem and can get from the hotel.
if you like temple, then it should be nice. But one thing it is quite far from the international airport.
Bangalore has many places to visit like Lalbagh, UB City, Temples, SNow City, National Park. and its worth to enjoy these places.
Bangalore is nice city with moderate temperature , place for shopping , dining, got historical places in and around the city.
Very nice weather. Temperature is slightly lower compared to South East Asian countries or other southern state of India.
Excellent place for food
roads in the city and out of the city are too bad. journey means back pain. every whee unnecessarily used speed breakers.
Even tourist places not covered with good roads. Auto Rates are tooooo High.. I think no control over them. As a tourist place it needs City plan in every Circle with English Name boards including on Local Busses.
Good shopping, very congested with people, traffic horrendous. Many sightseeing areas outside the city such as Mysore.
aware the auto driver, whatever u told them they would say they know it but actually they dont know the place/road/etc.
i nearly miss my flight........
All major attractions have timings, go by that. Most close at 5:30pm. Traffic is terrible. Airport is very very far.
Beautiful city with a nice weather. They have new hotels and new shopping malls. Cleaner than other parts of India.
Just stayed at Banglore for our connecting flight to maldives, so cannot exactly comment on the facilities and city
Its dusty, sometimes dirty but the people are quite nice. Beareful with the 'auto' drivers. They might trick u.
A very busy city traffic wise. There is plenty to see here, but sites are spread out, so need to use rickshaws.
The Bengaluru Palace is definitely worth a visit and also the Lalbagh Botanical gardens, but go in the late afternoon or early morning when it is cooler.
Not bad for business traveller but always get a price before buying any service, surcharge is not rational! :)
Central Bangalore city is a good place for shopping. You can get cosmetic items and clothes for a good price.
Safe for people to get around in night time. You may find good restaurants for dining. People are friendly and helpful. Most of the people in hotels/shops/restaurants can speak in English.
I HV NOT BN SIGHTSEEINGAS I GO FOR MY WORK.BUT WHATEVER I HV SEEN IS THAT IT IS A VERY SAFE CITY TO LIVE.
IT IS A GROWING CITY N HAS BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ALL ROUND YEAR.iT CITY OF Gardens.It is just beautiful wonderful.
heavy traffic from 9 to 11 in the morn,and 5 to 8 in the evening. dust and pollution gave me allergies.
The best and safest City in Bangalore, People & city is welcoming. Filled with energy and youngsters.
Banglore is full of overcrowded roads. Bangalore traffic is certainly the worst in the country today.
Even bikes cannot squeeze through the traffic jams here. It took between 1 to 1.5 hours travelling a distance of 6-7 kilometers from whitefiled to kabbuhalli. The road wuality was not much to write about....dug up everywhere. Once dug up they never repair the roads to be smooth...its a bumpy ride even within the city.
