Tips

People in Bangalore eat food with their fingers. While most of the restaurants will serve you with spoons but you can expect food without cutlery as well. Wash your hands at basins available with these restaurants and always remember to use your right hand to have your meals.
Beware of porters at airports and stations. Don't pay them more than Rs.10/-. Watch your luggage as they may run away with it.
Auto rickshaw drivers will make you go mad in the city. They may ask 4-5 times the normal fare. Prefer going by meters.
Observe the sanctity of religious places anywhere in India. Remove your shoes and if possible cover your head before entering any religious place.
Respect people's privacy while taking photographs. Always ask for permission.
