To make sure you maintain good health in Bangalore when vacationing, the city has put up a number of hospitals, rehabilitation centers and pharmacies for everyone. There are also massage and spa facilities for one’s relaxation and wellness. There are so many sightseeing spots and tourists attractions to enjoy in this leading South Indian city that it is imperative to have several health and wellness centers scattered all over.
The leading activities for tourists and vacationers to enjoy are sightseeing, shopping, hiking, hill climbing, camping and spelunking, as well as checking different interest clubs such as cricket, ultimate Frisbee, go-kart, radio-controlled car racing, rock climbing, and nature tripping.
Participating at local festivals and religious celebrations also takes up much of a tourist’s itinerary. These events happen throughout the year, offering vacationers a number of choices every month, such as the harvest festivals in January, the Mahashivratri in February, full moon celebrations in March, the famous Karaga Festival in March/April, Yugadi New Year also in March/April, Buddha Jayanti in May, snake worship festival in July, Krishna Janamasthami and Independence Day in August, birth of Ganesh in September, Diwali Festival in October, the famous Kadalekaye Parishe (Peanut Festival) in November, and the Bangalore Habba in December. These festivities are marked with music, dancing, street parties, parades, and feasts with plenty of foods and drinks. If unchecked, tourists may eat and drink more than they can handle, seriously threatening their health.
When on vacation, it is important not to overdo things. Try to avoid eating, drinking and partying as you would back home where your body is most comfortable. Be adventurous with food only if you know for sure that your stomach can handle chilly Hindu cuisine. Also, avoid sleeping late for successive nights.
