WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STAYING IN BANGALORE?
Travel in Bangalore
Bangalore has plenty of ways to get in and around the city; Bangalore International Airport is the busiest airport in South India spanning over 4,000 acres. It’s an hour car trip into the centre and taxis and car rentals are an easy option to get around the city as well as to and from the airport. However, if you’d prefer to take in the city, then a popular mode of transport is an auto rickshaw which is a three wheeled motorised vehicle. Bangalore is also well-connected by train and has an extensive bus system. Whatever mode of transportation you choose, getting to your Bangalore serviced apartment is an easy task.

Things to do in Bangalore
If you need a break during your busy working day, before you retire to your Bangalore serviced apartments, stroll over to Lalbagh Botanical Garden. This tranquil garden is full of over 1,000 species of plants, with rare plants from Afghanistan, Persia, and France. It holds two flower shows every year, in January and August, so if you can visit during these months the gardens look especially beautiful. To experience some of the city's history explore Bangalore Palace, the royal palace, featuring Tudor-style architecture inspired by England's Windsor Castle. It was opened to the public in 1944, and guests can immerse themselves in the building covered in nineteenth and twentieth century paintings; it is also an events venue. A religious site you must-visit is ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) Temple Bangalore. It is one of the largest temples in the world and was inaugurated in 1997.
