Bengaluru Travel Experience

We recently visited Bangalore. Read our experience in the Bangalore roads and tourist places.

Rewind: During my childhood, my family had visited Bengaluru (at that time it was named Bangalore) during one of our school vacations. Any trip,anywhere, with your family is bound to be fun and that trip was definitely an enjoyable one! I remember the really wide roads and we loved cruising down them with the windows rolled down, enjoying the breeze and playing Antakshari. We visited quite a few of the expansive gardens in the city as also the museums. I also vaguely recollect feasting on idlis at a Woodland restaurant. Naturally, no trip is complete without a bit of shopping. We did buy a few trinkets, but can't recollect exactly what.

Fast forward: Must say Bangalore was a really big shock to us! The one we recalled from our childhood trip was open spaces, cool weather and gardens. Now it is like the narrow roads of Mumbai, packed with polluting vehicles. Everywhere are mammoth buidlings. All the roads we travelled through were just lanes and with Metro work going on ... a real nightmare, in short! In short our impression of Bengaluru was not really good and somehow we felt happy we are not staying there. In fact, the relatives we visited there even told us that whatever our destination from the city, it was best to leave really early. Also, it seems that during the rains it can be even more nightmarish to travel! However, I must admit the weather was quite pleasant.

During our stay, we visited the Lalbagh Botanical Garden and the adjacent temples. From there we went to the most enjoyable part of the trip: the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum. There were a lot of interactive exhibits and my nieces had a really good time. From there, we went to Commercial Street where we discovered hops with reasonably priced fabrics.

All in all, despite the crowded roads, we did have a reasonably good time and I would definitely recommend that you visit Benagaluru to see the beautiful gardens and visit the aforesaid science musuem. Just make sure you head to the airport and stations on time!
