In South India it’s probably a good idea to rendezvous in Bangalore before any other city. Places like Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Vidhana Soudha, Cubbon Park and Museums, Bull Temple and Tipu Sultan’s Palace are all worth visiting and are a stone’s throw away from most hotels near Majestic Bangalore – considered as the city’s heart because of its proximity to both Majestic Bus stand & The Bengaluru City railway terminal. Mysore, which is only about three hours away, is full of palatial monuments, sandalwood and incense. The famous Hoysala temples at Halebid, Belur and Somnathpur are also close by. The unique, fun-loving, coffee growing culture of Coorg is not far away either.
