9 Reasons to Plan Your Next Trip to Bangalore.

From a long walk in Coles Park to saying a prayer at the Bull Temple, from hundreds of coffee shops to fantastic weather, you can’t help falling in love with this amazing city which we call Bangalore, but is better known as ‘The Garden City of India’ and ‘The Silicon Valley of India’.

Okay, first let me correct myself politically. Now it is officially renamed as Bengaluru, but the charm of its old name, ‘Bangalore’, is still intact. You know, like the good old days and wine!

Now let’s come to the point, if you have ever lived in the city, or have ever visited Bangalore, you can easily understand that the title of this blog is not an exaggeration. If you haven’t visited the city, let me convince you to plan your next trip to Bangalore, the following points will persuade you to do so:

1. Paradise for Music Lovers:

Do you know, over 50 music concerts are coming up in the next few months in Bangalore? Yes, all the best music concerts take place in the city. People here are hardcore music fans and every artist who visits India surely performs here.

2. Places of Peace:

Whether you want to indulge in paragliding, visit historical monuments or just spend time in the lap of nature, most of the popular weekend gateways are just a night’s journey from Bangalore. Places like Coonoor, Ooty, Mysore, Chennai, Coorg, are just 8-9 hours away from the main city.

9. Warm and friendly people:

Last but surely not the least, the natives of Bangalore are nice and friendly. Even though, it is down south, people flocking from other parts of the city never feel linguistically handicapped. Even if you can’t manage Kannada, Hindi and English are your saviours.

Trust me, I have never come across one person who has spent a major part of his life in Bangalore, but have something negative to say about the city. Everyone who has been there, even for a day, has only one thing to say, “Bangalore is the perfect place to stay”!
