"The tech capital of India"
Bangalore, also called Bengaluru, is a capital city in the state of Karnataka, India. Well known for being the Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore is a working city for many global tech companies. It also has a large variety of parks and nightlife options around M.G. and brigade road.
We had wanted to see Bangalore, since our home in California resided in the heart of Silicon Valley. Though Bangalore has a many tech workers, we didn’t find the city very impressive if compared on a similar scale to Silicon Valley, California.
The staple items like coffee culture, green environments, and quirky office culture were not readily apparent, letting down some of our expectations. We did enjoyed the parks that Bangalore has, along with some higher end shopping malls downtown.
We’re glad that we saw what the hype was about, but wouldn’t advise spending more than a day or two exploring Bangalore on a trip to India.
