Travelling tips to Bangalore
All the road is for you..............upto Bangalore
Their are no good hotels on the onward journey to Bangalore. On way back the old dhabas are around but you need to excuse on the hygiene part. So load some good snacks and food on onward journey. Start early for avoiding city traffic. Keep spare tyre in good condition since I did not find many air filling stops or shops to repair deflated tyres. You need to be a bit careful for sudden appearances made by 2 wheelers and tractors which come in the wrong direction facing you near the bye-passes of towns. The locals are still not accustomed to the one-way express way. I managed to keep my car in the middle so that speed could be maintained. As you cross over to the Karnataka border, you need to concentrate on few speed breakers close to Devanahalli. Apart from this it was a cozy drive.Read full review ›
