Exploring the City
From shopping sprees on Commercial Street to tours of Bangalore’s many museums, palaces and buildings, there is much to see here. Pack versatile basics to easily get around town.
- You’re going to be doing a lot of walking, so choose comfort over style in your shoes and opt for flat sandals or sneakers.
- Bangalore is at an elevation of about 3,000 feet, the highest of India’s major cities, which means its temperature is relatively moderate with winters in the 60s Fahrenheit and summers in the 80s. However, it’s still prone to heat waves and rainfall, so be prepared with a few waterproof pieces and plenty of sun protection.
- Bring along an extra carry-on for all the souvenirs you’re going to want to bring home.
