A photographer in Bangalore

by deepdownwalker

Hi,
I will be in Bangalore for a month or so, I'm a photographer and I wonder how safe it would be for me to walk arround alone with a big camera,accessories and a laptop.. I`ve heard people in India are very friendly but maybe anybody out there will have some advice for me.

Thanks.

I felt safer in India then in Europe. I have never been in a country where the people are so gracious and kind.

The worst that will happen to you in you will over-pay for a rickshaw ride.

1 month in Bangalore sounds like you will be there on business. Bangalore doesn't have much to see really. Mysore, which is an interesting drive away has much more to offer. You will be perfectly ok with camera etc with you. I would mostly agree with the previous poster, but with 1 addition. 95% of the population fits that profile. The other 5% fits the food/travel tv presenter Keith Floyd alternate view " the biggest bunch of bandits he's seen". One thing is for sure, street life is a continual circus. If this is your frirst trip to India , it won't be your last. The place is addictive. After my first trip , I was glad to be out of the place. 12 months later I was back.This is a common experience.

Hi - don't leave your stuff unattended or let anybody "watch" it for you. Most importantly please respect people's privacy and be especially respectful in places of worship. In certain situations you should ask before taking someone's picture.

Do get out of Bangalore though. If you go to Mysore, head a little further out to Nagarhole National Park. The elephants in the wild are magnificent. And if you get really lucky, you'll see a tiger! Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Bangalore

More Malls !

by cuppadamoksha

Bangalore Central is more of a large department store than a mall with seperate retailers. It still is must visit for shoppers in Bangalore. It is located in city centre on the corner of M.G and Residency Roads (Opposite Mayo Hall), is walkable distance to the main M.G/Brigade Roads shopping area. It has a huge range of everything (like department stores in the west), clothing (Indian and Western brands), electornics, perfumes, accessories as well as a supermarket on the top floor and food court plus a Cafe Coffee Day. They have a altering service with in the store and can be done in two hours depending on the rush.

Safina Plaza Is sale central in Bangalore, located on Infantry Road. Every week there is sale going on of any type. One week it might be home furnishings and the next men's wear. Good place to find some bargains. Many exhibitons are also held here, although there are retailers (Dockers, Lee Jeans, Titan too name a few) here too. So for quiet shopping come here (much less crowded than the other malls). Its best to visit during end of season sales (summer, monsoon) or during festivals (New Year, Christmas, Ganesh Chaturthi).

Marathahalli Main Road and Factory Outlets Located a distance from central Bangalore (although not difficult to reach), is Marathahalli (a village in a previous life). The main road of this suburb is now a haven for factory outlets for all major brands: Nike, Adidas, Pepe Jeans, Killer Jeans, Louis Phillipe, Levi's, Reebok etc.. You can expect prices here to be cheaper than in the Malls, atleast 20-30% price difference but can be upto 50% cheaper when it comes to some of the major denim brands! As if India wasn't cheap enough. Although this is the best place to go to for factory outlet shopping, there are smaller factory outlets scattered across the city. Also look out for sales held by the major brands to get rid of end of season stock (again end of summer or end of monsoon), these are usually advertised in newspapers or look for signs posted on major roads.

Lal Bagh

by mallyak

Lal Bagh Botanical Garden is a well known botanical garden in Bangalore, India The garden was commissioned by the ruler of Mysore, Hyder Ali.
Background
Hyder Ali commissioned the building of this garden in 1760 but his son, Tipu Sultan, completed it. Lalbagh is a 240 acre (971,000 sq.m. - almost 1 sq.km.) garden and is located on the southern part of Bangalore. It holds a number of flower shows, especially on the Republic Day (26th January). The garden has over 1,000 species of flora. The Glass House, modeled on London's Crystal Palace (now re-modelled with a different layout), is the center of attraction. Hyder Ali laid out these famous botanical gardens and his son added horticultural wealth to them by importing trees and plants from several countries. The Lalbagh Gardens were commissioned by the 18th century and over the years it acquired India's first lawn-clock and the subcontinent's largest collection of rare plants. The garden also has trees that are over 100 years old.


The Glass House at Lal BaghThe garden surrounds one of the towers erected by the founder of Bangalore, Kempe Gowda. Hyder Ali decided to create this garden on the lines of the Mughal Gardens that were gaining popularity during his time. The park has some rare species of plants brought from Persia, Afghanistan and France. With an intricate watering system for irrigation, this garden is aesthetically designed, with lawns, flowerbeds, lotus pools and fountains. Most of the centuries old trees are labeled for easy identification. The Lal Bagh Rock, one of the oldest rock formations on earth, dating back to 3000 million years, is another attraction that brings the crowds.
