Download Free eBook

Stuck in our daily drudgery of a 9-6 job in an urban concrete jungle, many of us need to take a big break. Particularly for those who work in the large metro cities in India, the cramped spaces, peak hour traffic, the growing air pollution and filth can become really suffocating. Obviously, we urbanites yearn for a respite from the hustle and bustle of our concrete jungles.

This World Tourism Day, let’s pledge to venture out in the countryside… breathe in the fresh air…bring more greenery into the picture…  meet strange people and experience a whole new world out there!

India’s IT capital, Bangalore holds the title of being the most modern and cosmopolitan city in the country. There are few historical or cultural spots worth visiting inside this modern city. However, there are numerous picturesque sightseeing spots around the city. With the help of Google Maps we have created a short day tour circuit of tourist sites within the range of 100 kms around Bangalore.

If you are planning a longer trip, here is a comprehensive list of regular and offbeat tourist spots which you can visit over the weekend. We have made our best efforts to include as much details as possible and update them. However, if you find some errors have crept into this sight-seeing guide, please comment so that we can update it soon.
