The city is also home to some of the brightest IT professionals and major corporations in
the country. All this infuses Bangalore with a cosmopolitan lifestyle, with pubs, nightclubs and
theatres. The city boasts of an amazing number of flowering parks and trees. With splendid pink
cassias and golden acacias blooming, with jacarandas flowering in purple majesty and the
gulmohurs lighting the roads with their flame orange brilliance, the city is a sheer delight
to simply wander around in.
Bangalore Airport ( Airport Code: BLR ) is 13 km east of the City Station.
Bangalore has direct international flights to London, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Frankfurt,
and Paris. Bangalore is also a stopover for many international flights. The airport is divided
in to two terminals. Terminal I contain the Departure lounge for the Domestic Flights and
Terminal II is for Arrival of Domestic Flights and International section for the Departure and
Arrival of International flights.
Changing Money/ Currency Exchange
In India, the unit of currency is the Rupee (INR). Change money with Authorized Currency Exchange places like
the airport, most banks and hotels and insist on a receipt, as it will help you reconvert unused rupees
into the original foreign currency at the time of departure. Avoid any people on the street who offer
to change your money at a temptingly high rate of exchange ( Generally you end up with fake currencies,
or its a scam where the street dealer bolts with your money. )
Taxi Bookings/Hotel Pickup
It is advisable to do all bookings of taxis (Pre-Paid) and hotels via the airport.
The cab fare is little more expensive but the cops keep a record of cab passengers so you are safe
and don't have to put up with a tampered meter or other excuses. If you can arrange to be picked
up via your hotel it would be very beneficial.
The climate of Bangalore is moderate and pleasant. Summer months between April and June are mild (20°C - 35°C)
and winter months from Oct and Feb are cool (14°C - 28°C). The city experiences south western monsoon rains in June August period.
Although the weather of Bangalore is pleasant throughout the year, it is best visited in the winters.
