Outline of the trip:
INR 3000 (food, entry tickets and zoom car for internal commute)
Bangalore is good to visit year round but I would suggest to avoid the months of monsoon and summer i.e. April – September
29th and 30th April, 2018.
We had a long weekend ahead of us and hence we planned these 3 trips in this long weekend. Our friend already had a base in Bangalore and hence we kept it our base.
Trip 1 : Bangalore ( below )
Trip 2 : Bamboo Rustles – read here
Trip 3 : Wayanad, Kerala – read here
We landed in Bangalore at 12 midnight. Reached our accommodation and called in a night
Halt 1 : Dog Cafe
We started our trip with wagging tails approaching us with unconditional love. Read it here – Visiting TherPUP a dog cafe Bangalore
Halt 2 : Organic food garden
We found a artifact showroom in the vicinity and decided to drop by. The entire property was beautiful, filled with trees, plants and flowers and cute decor. We couldn’t buy any organic food or artifacts unfortunately, but did get some peaceful moments here and pictures, of course.
Halt 3 : Party at the Watson’s
We decided to explore the night life of Bangalore and visited Watson’s to party. The place is nothing like we would get in Mumbai. It had open windows and beautiful decor and ambiance.
Day 3 :
Halt 1: Bangalore Palace
If Bangalore Palace is not on your bucket list, put it NOW! This palace has a mixture of Tudor and Scottish Gothic architecture which have resulted into the grand palace that we see today. As per beliefs, King Chamarajendra Wadiyar drew his inspiration for building the palace from the Windsor Castle of London.
Indian: INR 230, Foreigner: INR 460 . This cost includes a headhpones with a tape. It has explained each corner of the palace beautifully.
Halt 2 : Ulsoor Lake
After leaving from Bangalore palace, we wanted to catch the sunset at the Ulsoor lake. It was a perfect setting – my friends, gorgeous sunset around infinite lake and wind around us.
Halt 3 : Happy Belly Bakes
A cafe that I would recommend if you want to spend some alone with with cute ambiance, loads of books (you can exchange your current book with any book in the cupboard that they have), delicious desserts and food.
This sums up my Bangalore Trip.
