Bangalore, a delightful combination of Business and Leisure
Bangalore, a quaint town has emerged as a leading IT hub inviting national and multinational firms and professionals from all over India. Calling Bangalore aka Bengaluru as a city with heterogeneous population from across various tradition and culture will not be a far fetched statement. Bangalore airport which was earlier associated with the Indian Air Force predominantly has now turned out to be an active hub known as Kempegowda International Airport inviting international airlines to make a halt over here. It is now possible to travel to Middle East, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and many more popular international destinations from here.

Domestic travel to and from Bangalore is also on the high with substantial traffic gained through travelers and regular shuttling of business executives and professionals to the financial hub Mumbai and National Capital New Delhi. Many airlines including SpiceJet offer attractive rates for passengers flying between key destinations such as New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. In fact, Bangalore is known in airline circles as the station with the highest yielding economy class traffic in India. It is the government’s wholehearted efforts to pull in investments that makes Bangalore the place it is in terms of labor relations, state of the art infrastructure, good telecom services, presence of research and technology institutions and is endowed with a naturally pleasant climate.
Train travel was an option few years back but now a 32-hour travel from New Delhi to Bangalore seems too long. With the issues of food, comfort and cost, it is easy to make use of Delhi to Bangalore flights with a minor difference in price and we save on health, time and travel comfortably too. If you are smart, you can also make use of Airlines ticket discount sales or use the price watcher to grab the best deal provided you can plan your travel in advance as in the case of vacation or conferences or scheduled official trips.
Bangalore is not only limited to only business, all work and no play can make one dull, so when it is weekends, it is time to rejoice with fun and frolic and to say night life here rocks is not an over statement. For the adventure lovers, there are plethora of activities, here are few out of the way things you can try out – Trek to Khudremukh or Kumara Parvatha or head to Coorg for a cool hilly vacation and also for a trek to Tadiandamol peak, go on a scintillating night trek to Anthargange, and also try out the wine tour.
