Things to do in Bangalore

Here is a few more tips from the community. Other travelers share their best tips on backpacking Bangalore:

Beware of traffic. You can beat the traffic by using a two-wheeler for longer distances within the city and cycle for short distances. If you are a traveller, just use rental cycles (Yulu) or rental two wheelers (Bounce) for point-to-point solutions. For long term rentals, try wheelstreet / royalbrothers.



The city was rather beautiful earlier but has now become a bit more crowded. A growing number of IT companies have set up base here and made it more like a metropolis. The nice side about Bangalore, though, is the fact that there are many nice getaways which take you back to the good old days. Of course, if you love shopping, you'll never get tired here.

It is home to numerous public sector heavy industries, software companies, aerospace, telecommunications, machine tools, heavy equipment, and defense establishments. Bangalore is referred to as the Silicon Valley of India due to its pre-eminent position as the leading contributor to India's IT industry. Bangalore has developed into one of India's major economic hubs and was rated by CNN as the "Best place to do business" in the world. Apart from this, Bangalore is known as the "Garden City of India" because of its greenery and the presence of many public parks, including the Lal Bagh and Cubbon Park. It is such a serene and beautiful place to enjoy.


It's a beautiful city -- not very crowded and doesn't have particular rush-hours. It's a must go.
