Bangalore is a bustling metro where the pace of life is urgent and there is little time for leisure. There was a time when Bangalore was a paradise away from pollution and dirt. It was an inviting place, a city that dared to remain green and clean. Those days are gone and people who live in the city are desperate to get away from the crowd and traffic. They dream of staying, for a little time at least, in some place that would help them feel refreshed, so that they can go back to the city and face their daily routines with more cheer and energy. Weekend Break From Bangalore is aimed at people looking for such getaways, places that are easy to reach, for a quick break over the weekend. The locations listed here are just a few hours away from the city. This means that people can take a quick trip, followed by a day's stay, and then return to the city.
