Reason 1 – Because Bengaluru offers the best weather

Everyone who lives in India knows that Bangalore / Bengaluru has the best weather throughout the year. Even during summer season, the city has pleasant and romantic weather. Based on the geographical location of Bengaluru, the city is situated on a peninsula that is in between the two oceans, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. This ensures that the city is equidistant from the shores and not making it far away from the shores as well. At an elevation of 1000 metres above sea level, Bengaluru weather is perfect and was once considered as a retirement city.

Even though Bengaluru enjoys a good weather throughout the year, the ideal time to visit the city is between November and February, which are the spring and winter seasons. June to October is the monsoon season and the city does get a bit of rain. Unfortunately, due to the climate change, the city has been hotter than the previous years, making summer season (March to May) a bit uncomfortable for travel.
