Flourishing development and a bustling IT industry transformed Bangalore into a vibrant metropolis, but the city preserves its numerous historic and cultural sights.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum and The Heritage Centre & Aerospace Museum. You'll explore and learn at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat and Cauvery Handicrafts. Change things up with these side-trips from Bengaluru: Nandi Hills (in Chikkaballapur) and Tumkur (Siddaganga Mutt & Devarayana Durga). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with UB City, wander the streets of Commercial Street, explore the historical opulence of Bangalore Palace, and walk around Cubbon Park.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Bengaluru itinerary planner.

Chennai to Bengaluru is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. In May, Bengaluru is little chillier than Chennai - with highs of 39°C and lows of 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel to Colombo.

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Get some historical perspective at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Kalutara Bodhiya. Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Negombo Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Negombo (Dutch Canal, St. Mary's Church, & more), Thewaththa Church (Basilica Ragama) (in Ragama) and Beruwala Beach (in Beruwala). Pamper yourself for a day on the 1st (Sat) at some of the top local wellness centers. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, see the interesting displays at Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Mount Lavinia Beach.
