Namma Bengaluru! Here’s a list of fun things to do in one of the India’s IT capitals.
A bustling city, with IT parks, start-ups and software professionals on one side and lush green gardens on the other, Bengaluru has a unique charm. Apart from being a corporate and IT hotbed, its pleasant weather makes it one of the most liveable cities in India. People visit Bengaluru all year, so book your Mumbai to Bengaluru flights in advance for the best deals.
While Bengaluru offers a true cosmopolitan city life, with eateries, activities and places to explore aplenty, the city has something to suit the tastes of unconventional visitors, too.
Here are some of the best off-beat things you can do when in Bengaluru.
Chill under the big banyan tree
You must not have seen a tree as huge as this one. Locally known as the DoddaAlada Mara, it is a 400-year old banyan tree in Kethohalli outside Bengaluru. This single tree covers 3 acres with thousands of aerial roots hanging down. There aren’t many such gems to see in India, so do visit it – but book your Mumbai Bengaluru flight, soon.
Explore the antiques treasure
If you love old things, this is the place for you! The Qurio City Shop on Kamraj Road hosts many timeless antiq21`1`ue items abandoned or discarded by their original owners. From wooden articles to beautiful buttons, and old vinyl records to rare posters, the store is a throwback to a retro world.
Royal Enfield factory tour
Bike enthusiasts will love this tour, while others will think of it as a unique experience. The Royal Enfield organises these factory tours for visitors who wish to know how Royal Enfield manufactures their classic bikes. But check the timings and days before you go.
Soak in nature and culture
Odissi dancer Protima Gauri established Nrityagram in 1990. It is located near Hesaraghatta Lake, around 30 kilometres outside Bengaluru. With its beautiful gardens and temples, the place offers the perfect blend of culture and nature.
‘Know your Bin’ tour
This is a full-day tour to understand the city’s waste management systems. You will see first-hand how garbage is segregated and recycled, and the people working in the system. This is certainly a very unusual thing to do, but if you have a knack for really unconventional things, go for it.
Forest walk in Turahalli
Isn’t the idea of a forest right in the middle of a crowded city exciting? The Turahalli Forest Area is the only remaining forest in Bengaluru. It is situated off the Kanakapura Road, near Banashankari. Walk hand in hand with nature on the narrow trails, small hillocks, and heavy vegetation.You cannot take any vehicles inside this forest, but you can cycle around.
