Five Reasons to Add Bengaluru on Your Travel Bucket List

From the urban, concrete jungles to acres of parks, Bengaluru is just the city you would want to visit! But who goes for a vacation to a city, you may ask? Bengaluru – the Silicon Valley of India – delivers much more than its name stereotypes the city to be. The gorgeous, cosmopolitan city is not just home to the biggest IT space in the country – it is filled with a myriad of culinary trails, thrilling activities and a whole lot of history to indulge yourself in.

The only time you should avoid visiting Namma Bengaluru is during the high heat of April to June. Being a plateau region, the place tends to get very hot during the day which can deter you from enjoying your vacation. Another thing to keep in mind is planning your accommodation well in advance – there is a rush around the year with business travellers, weekend’s tourists and students so seal your deal before you reach the city and struggle to find a room.
