Bangalore in May

Jump to last reply

I have never been to India but am going to Bangalore in May for work. I am a bit disappointed by what I read about Bangalore and am trying to figure out how to make it an interesting trip in between work obligations. I am writing about India so I would really like to experience both the changing modern India (Bangalore) as well as a glimpse of the more traditional India and its values. Any suggestions? I admit, i am a bit nervous travelling alone there.

What is the best way to get around? How expensive are things compared to New York? I hear the traffic is always a snarled mess so not sure how walkable it is.

thank you
