Bangalore, now Bengaluru, is the largest city and known as the Silicon Valley of India. It’s the place where startups and many Indian tech companies found their home. We may not be aware but there are a vast number of skillful and tech-savvy individuals living in India. However, apart from them being aligned with the latest trends in technology, Bangalore still finds ways to preserve the natural beauty of the city, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations as well.
If you are traveling from other cities, you can book convenient flights from Mumbai to Bangalore or from any city in India that allows you to reserve your energy for leisure. To make the most out of your visit to Bangalore, here are some fun activities you shouldn’t miss:
Visit Bannerghatta National Park
Despite Bangalore being an IT hub, there are spots you can visit if you are wanting to visit parks and see wildlife creatures. The Bannerghatta National Park helps in conserving the depleting population of wildlife and the environment in Bangalore. You may visit the tiger and lion safari, as well as the zoo and butterfly park. Apart from their great advocacy, they also obey safety protocols and regularly disinfect the area for the visitors’ safety.
Go Trekking on Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta
If you love hiking, Bilikal Rangaswamy Betta is a famous place to visit in Bangalore. The area is estimated at 3780 ft high, making you want to reach its peak and enjoy the scenery. Along the way, you may also see some elephants and other wild animals. If you are planning for a night trek, check with the trusted locals in the area before heading up.
Explore Fun World Amusement Park
If you are traveling with kids, Fun World Amusement Park may be the best place for the whole family to visit. Its most famous attractions are the Snow World and Cubbon Park, and the thrilling rides such as the Octopus, Hang Glider, and The Crazy Ball Fire. It is recommended to bring extra clothes with you especially when exploring the water park adventures.
Go Street Shopping
No travel is complete without taking time to shop at malls and markets in the area. If you’re feeling a little fancy, you can enter nearby malls in Bangalore like the Forum Mall and Bangalore Central Mall. You may also splurge on some goodies in the Commercial Street, Jayanagar 4th Block, and Majestic Market. Come home from traveling with all sorts of their bestsellers and novelty items.

You can explore delicacies in the street stalls in the area at an affordable price. Some of the must-try foods are Disco Chaat, Chicken Tikka Roll, and Pani Puri. You may also want to hang out at several cafes in the city and enjoy a wonderful ambiance with great food.
