  • Getting to Bangalore

Bangalore -- Bangalore is one of Asia's fastest growing cities, and India's fifth largest city. Situated at an altitude of 920 metres above sea level, Bangalore is the principal administrative, cultural, commercial and industrial centre of the South Indian State of Karnataka. Thanks to its altitude, Bangalore enjoys a pleasant and equable climate throughout the year. Tree-lined streets and abundant greenery made it the 'Garden City' of India.
However, since local entrepreneurs and technology giant Texas Instruments discovered its potential as a high-tech city in the early 1980s, Bangalore has seen a major technology boom and is now home to more than 250 high-tech companies, including homegrown giants like Wipro and Infosys. The erstwhile garden city has now been pegged the 'Silicon Valley' of India.
The people in the city are warm, hospitable and friendly. Bangalore is generally regarded as a place that most visitors like to chill out in. Not to say that it has nothing for the people interested in history. Along with the modern day pubs, discos and hangouts, one can still see remnants of the older Bangalore. All in all, a lovely city to visit.

  • By Air -- Bangalore is now a fairly busy International airport with airlines like Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, Singapore Airlines, Air India, Thai Airways and Air Lanka connecting with the rest of the world. All major domestic airlines serve Bangalore, connecting it with the rest of India.
  • By Rail -- Bangalore is well connected to all major Indian cities. There are number of daily express trains from Bangalore to other cities of India.
