Visit the Nandi Hills
Go for a drive to Nandi Hills (57km from Bangalore, off National Highway 7) and catch the breathtaking scenery of the surrounding countryside. It's 600 metres above the surrounding plateau and has steep cliffs on the sides, as well as the summer fort of Tipu Sultan. Be there at 6am to catch the sunrise while standing above the clouds.

Watch a play at the Rangashankara theatre
Bangalore was known for plays but over the years it died down. Rangashankara still hosts great plays and I enjoy going out and watching these live shows. It has a different buzz about it. They run it professionally and make the whole process very enjoyable for you. Robin Uthappa
Tips for Travellers
Bangalore's traffic police frequently check motorists for their alcohol intake - especially around MG Road area, and around other places where there are many pubs - and not just on weekends. So, if you have a car, pick a designated driver for the night or be very sorry.
