Must Do

Shop for gifts

If there are any exhibition-cum-sale of arts and handicrafts at Chitrakala Parishat (overlooking the Bangalore Golf Course), you could do some gift-shopping there. Otherwise, visit the arts emporiums in the city - MG Road, Cunningham Road - however be warned that they are very expensive.

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.
