A city like Bangalore comes armed and equipped with all kinds of things to do and activities to explore. Right from bustling breakfast joints on Monday mornings till the last bar call on Sunday nights, there’s always something happening. We’ve narrowed these down to a handful of Bangalorean favourites.
Take a walk on the wild side and enjoy Bangalore’s many camping spots. Places like Ramnagara, Nandi Hills, Savandurga and Anthargange are some of the city’s best seats for a lovely night of star-gazing and relaxing.
Price: 1000-2000 INR
If you’re a Bangalorean, the best place to vacation at is, well, in Bangalore. It’s easy on the pockets and gives you a chance to explore the city.

3. Redecorate your space

You don’t need a big backyard to light up a barbeque in Bangalore. Do it city-style instead. Gather your favourite humans on your terrace for the evening. Light up some fairy lights, turn up the music(to a moderate neighbourhood-friendly volume) and get your grill on.
5. Nature walks
Bangalore is not your textbook definition of a concrete city. Most city roads run through a canopy of trees. We’ve got pockets of lovely green parks all over the place that give you the kind of peace only nature can. A stroll down Cubbon park or Lalbagh does your soul a whole lot of good. On the weekends, you can actually join nature walks conducted in the parks.
6. Discover the arts
There is always something brewing in Bangalore. Whether it is a flea market or an art workshop, you’ll never fail to find the buzz of an event around the corner. There are open mics that happen almost weekly at most pubs and cafes. Workshops are taking over now. And if you can’t keep up with them? Follow your favourite cafes/event spaces/pubs on facebook. It’s a sure-fire way to keep track of the art scene in the city.
