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
This applies to all cities: carry soap strips with you if possible, and wash your hands before every meal. Tourists, especially from western countries, tend to be susceptible to upset tummies and diarrhoea in India. Washing your hands can go a long way in making your trip a sick-free one.
