British Airways has frequent flights to Bangalore (now officially called Bengaluru), landing at Bengaluru International Airport, almost 20 miles north of Bangalore's city centre. After your flights land in Bangalore, take a taxi into central Bangalore. Then stroll Bangalore's leafy Cubbon Park with its octagonal bandstand and state library. Soon you'll be ready for an evening out at Bangalore's coolest bars and lounges.
When flights land at Bangalore, leave the shiny Bengaluru International Airport by metered taxi for central Bangalore along the six-lane motorway. Your journey into busy Bangalore could take up to one hour. If you want a cheaper option after your Bangalore flight, choose the best of eleven routes on a non-stop shuttle bus to reach your Bangalore hotel.
After Bangalore flights arrive, get to grips with the latest technical gadgets as well as Bangalore's ancient temples. If you're looking for fresh air after your Bangalore flight, wander the vast selection of tropical plants at Lal Bagh Gardens. Nearby, climb the ornate 16th-century Kempegowda Tower, one of four towers in Bangalore. At Bangalore Palace, gaze at Gothic windows and paintings of Maharaja kings. Join locals at the Bangalore Turf Club Race Course and place your bets, or cheer on national cricketers at a match at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. In the evening, sip cocktails at Bangalore's trendy lounges or enjoy Bangalore's coffee culture in one of Bangalore's many cafes. Before your return flights from Bangalore, shop for soft silks and carved sandalwood.
