We visited Nandi Hills. We shopped at the Pothys. Visited Malls ( Orion). The weather was nice and cool in the evening and mornings. Slightly hot in day but manageable.

Food and Shopping: Shopping at Pothys is an amazing experience. Its a massive showroom with millions of Sarees and dress material. It has kids and men's section also on higher floors. Absolutely fascinating interior decoration can be seen inside Pothys which is stunning to say the least. Ate at Orion mall food court. The ambience is beautiful and the food is good

Highlight of the trip: The trip to Nandi hills made the highlight. Breathtaking view of the sunrise and the hills. Its to be experienced to be believed.
