Top 5 Reasons to Visit Bengaluru

Reason 1 – Because Bengaluru Offers the Best Weather

Everyone in India knows that Bangalore / Bengaluru has the best weather throughout the year. Even during the summer season, the city has pleasant and romantic weather. Based on the geographical location of Bengaluru, the city is situated on a peninsula 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 1000 metres above sea level, Bengaluru weather is perfect and was once considered a retirement city.

Even though Bengaluru enjoys 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 gets some 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.

Reason 2 – Because Bengaluru offers delicious and mouth-watering food

Bengaluru food is one of the best in India, and the city has many delicious items to offer. The local food, especially the street food, is a delicacy here, especially Rava Idli and Khara bun, and is cherished throughout India. As the city is multicultural, Bengaluru’s food culture mixes local and multinational cultures. Bangaloreans are spoiled by too many choices with darshinis (fast food joints) such as CTR or Taaza Thindi, cafes and multicuisine restaurants.

Reason 3 – Because Bengaluru has an Amazing Heritage and Cultural Vibes

Not just for its modern and latest technology vibes, Bengaluru also has abundant heritage and cultural vibes. The city promotes art with exhibitions like the Van Gogh 360 or Chitra Santhe, as well as history, old buildings, and traditions. It is home to many ethnicities and races. To date, there are many religious and local festivals celebrated here that were part of previous generations. Many heritage walks pass through important and historical monuments.

Reason 4 – Because Bengaluru Welcomes Interstate or Overseas Immigrants with Open Hands

As mentioned above, Bengaluru is home to many immigrants. It is not just limited to interstate but is also home to many overseas and international immigrants. And hence the city’s culture and traditions comprise many values and lifestyles. Because of its welcoming nature, people from all areas and ethnicities flock to Bengaluru.

Reason 5 – Because Bengaluru is Still a Green City

Known as the garden city, Bengaluru has many patches of greenery throughout the city. The city has many parks, the most famous ones being Cubbon Park and Lalbagh Botanical Garden. In fact, the name Garden city was given because of Hyder Ali’s planned garden Lalbagh. The areas within the city have also maintained their trees and green spaces.
