Good Morning to all the viewers of and I wish all of you a Very Happy New Year. Today I am going to write a review on my Second Home which is Bengaluru formely known as Bangalore. I will categorize the review in 2 parts "THEN" and "NOW".

I will start with "THEN"

I moved to Bangalore in the year 2012 as I had got an offer to work with Infosys.I was very excited to be in Bangalore as it was always a Dream and I still remember my first PG which was in a very good locatity in HSR Layout. I felt at that time that the weather of Bangalore was very pleasent and I was also observing frequest rains which made the climate more chilled. Traffic too was bearable as I just hopped in to the Office Transport vehicle and would reach office and then back home. Didn't had so many friends and so was not used to all the places in Bangalore at that time. I along with two of my PG friends would just roam about the near by places. Saturdays and Sunday we use to Visit the Nearby Forum Mall and enjoy meals and sometimes also hit the Cinemas. Almost around 3 years passed by the same way. Explored further some of the best shopping places like MG ROAD, Brigade ROAD, Jayanagar 4th Block etc but always felt that it was quiet Expensive. Within this 3 years I also have seen that the climate of Bangalore had changed a lot and also Traffic too has increased. Life was going on untill I met the best person in my life with whom I am happily married for about 2 years now.

Bangalore "NOW":

After I got married I feel like I have known the entire Bangalore within just 1 month. Being with a person who has a craze for Mean Machines like Cars and Bikes I have seen that Bangalore has become a very small place for me. But to all the readers I want to let them know that Bangalore has become Bengaluru and so does many of the things. Now I will highlight some of the things that can be done in Bangalore and I feel this will help any new travellers.

a. How to Travel to Bengaluru.

This is something that I would like to give a thumbs up. Bengaluru is well connected will all the modes of Tranport viz, Airways, Railways and Road Transport. Bengaluru's International Airport is also listed among the Best airports in Asia. There are many Trains that run from all parts of India to Bengaluru ony thing one needs to make sure to book the tickets before hand. Excellent Bus services both Sleeper and Semi-sleeper is also available for Bangalore from almost other South India states and some Norther States like Gujarat and Rajasthan.

b. Where to stay:

Well one can find N number of Hotels here in Bangalore. Budget hotels till Hotels will Multiple Stars are also available for the service. I will advise to better check the availability and the price of the hotels online and then pre-book.

c. Food:

Now this is something that I am very fond of, Food. Yes people I am a food-o-holic and we both travel many times to other places within the city to hunt for different cuisines. One can find all sort of Food whether it is North or South. What I will suggest is to visit the small caterers where in we can find some of the authentic food. I feel Tiffins or morning Breakfast items are good in Bangalore.

d: What to do:

Now many of the first visitors have Bangalore's Night Life in Mind. I would like to correct you that Bengaluru's night life ends by 11.30 PM as it is directed by the Safety department. One can visit the Malls here which are indeed very huge and looks very charming. Here are the list of some of my Favourites: Garuda Mall near to MG road, Forum Mall at Koramangala, Bangalore Central Mall of JP Nagar, Mantri Square Mall at Malleshawaram and Lastly Phoenix Marketcity which is located in White Field.

Now here are some of the other tourist places that can be visited in Bangalore:

> Lal Bagh - This is a botanical Garden which has indeed a Royal Origin as it was started by HYDER ALI. Different kind of Flowers and other plants can be seen.

> Bannerghatta National Park - Founded in 1970 and declared as a National park in 1974 this park is located in the Outskirts of Bangalore. One can visit that place and opt for the Safari rides which will give them a sight of Lions, Tigers, Bears and other animals.

> ISKCON Temple - This temple is located in Rajajinagar and is a best place for Devotees and non-devotees to go and get some mental peace.

> NANDI HILLS - Now this is a place which is one of my favourite. This place is around 70 kilometers from Bangalore city and is good for Nature lovers. One needs to be there at early hours so that the Sunrise can be seen. This is also a perfect spot for the people who loves to Ride or Drive on the Hills.

> WONDERLA - This is an Amusement park that is located on the Bangalore-Mysore Highway and is around 35 kilometers from the city. All types of rides both dry and wet rides are available and the pools are the main attraction.

> Other places to vivit: Cubbon Park, Tipu's Place, Bangalore Fort, Bangalore Palace, Vidhana Soudha and also Museum.

There is lot that can be written about this Beautiful city which is turning to be very polluted these days but time is less and spaces are confined. Any one who is planning to visit Bengaluru please make yourself ready for the Traffic congestion and rest all is fine. This is a safe city and always welcomes guests.
