India is a fast developing country and Bangalore is contributing a lot to this development by putting India on the map by being listed among the top IT cities around the whole world. Bangalore is a fun place to be in or to live and settle. It has everything you would want to live in a big city and also has not lost its soul by giving its inhabitants a feel of being at home.
The first thing one would notice the moment they land or arrive in Bangalore is the beautiful, pleasant, slightly chilly weather of the city unless you visit in the month of April and May which is the only time when the sun is a little harsh but is still very pleasant if you choose to stay indoors. This city, known as the ‘Silicon Valley of India’ is the IT hub of India. With most major MNCs setting up their base headquarters in India in this city, it is a complete paradise for tech junkies in India. This city pulls off a perfect blend of having been a fully developed metropolitan city yet still manage to preserve the homely feel of the city for the residents.
Bangalore is a perfect holiday destination. You could make your stay at some of the best hotels in Bangalore. Bangalore has most of the international and national luxurious hotel chains and some other 5 star hotels across the whole city. You could also easily book yourself in one of the mid range or cheap budget friendly hotels in Bangalore. What matters is not the stay, but what you will be doing the rest of the day. If you are on a budget, you need to keep in mind that the lesser you spend on your accommodation, the more you get to shell out during the day, and in a city like Bangalore, ‘more’ is never enough.
The purpose of visiting Bangalore does not really matter if you have time to spare. Although you may visit the city for some work, if you have time to spare, you can have the time of your life. Bangalore, unlike other metropolitan cities in India, is a compact city. Going from one place to another is quick, unless you go out during peak hours while the traffic is at its peak, the distance is very short and it doesn’t usually take time. You could come up with something spontaneous at the spur of the moment and the next moment you know you have reached the nightclub with music so loud you cannot even hear yourself talking. The knowledge and ability to understand sign language helps in this case.
In the midst of all the corporate skyscrapers and huge complexes of malls and theatres, there is a touch of greenery you will see across the whole city. The most popular garden in Bangalore is the Lal Bagh Botanical garden, although there are many other parks and gardens scattered along the whole city, especially in the residential areas. And these spaces are properly utilized by people of the locality and you would see old people taking walks and the younger folks exercising every morning and evening.
Bangalore does not, however, have metro all over the city. It runs only a few kilometers somewhere in the suburbs till MG road. Buses and autos are the main mode of local transport and with the emergence and popularity of mobile app cab bookings, taking a cab is fast becoming a popular choice of transport. Bangalore has a fully functional and a busy International airport located around 30 km away from the city. It has all major international and domestic airlines like Air India, Jet Airways, IndiGo, Air Asia, Qatar Airways, British Airways, Etihad Airways, Emirates, etc.
