Day trip


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.

Must Do

Eateries near the stadium

The stadium is very close to MG Road so do not miss the opportunity to walk alongside it. Try the biryani at Nagarjuna on Residency Road and the Chinese food at Little China on Church Street.

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.
