About Andrea D
Lives in Bengaluru, India
Since Jun. 2012
25-34 year old female
I'm a current resident of Bangalore, India. Born in Dubai and rooted in Mangalore. I love to eat, dance, travel and network. My love affair for all of the above started when I moved to Bangalore to pursue higher education. My journey in the city and in various parts of the world, from a mere college student to now a working professional has allowed me to explore places in different lights and perspectives and I would love to share that with fellow travelers who are seeking to experience the best by exploring the abundant elements, sights and sounds the world has to offer.

Points of Interest & Landmarks
No trip to Bangalore is complete without having some 'dosas' and 'idli' for breakfast. MTR was founded by two brothers in 1924, and since then, the locale has been serving up authentic Karnataka food from the Udupi region of the state, flanked by a special filter coffee. The decor is nothing special, but only because the focus here is on the quality of the food.
Spread over 240 acres of landscaped terrain, the expansive and lush Lalbagh Botanical Gardens were created in the late 17th century by the ruler Hyder Ali. The diverse collection of plants here is impressive, and the flower show hosted at the glass house every year is one of the feature attractions. Lalbagh is also home to the largest collection of tropical plants in India, a lake, and an aquarium.
This hidden gem is located in one of the busiest parts of the city, near KR Market. Teak wood pillars give it a unique look, and the intricate frescoes and Islamic art inside the palace are not to be missed. An inscription on one of the wooden panels proclaims it an 'abode of happiness.' It's a marvelous heritage site.
Nagarjuna is something of an institution when it comes to serving the best Andhra and regional cuisine in town. It’s one of those places that doesn’t look so promising on the outside, but on the inside it's simply blockbuster levels of deliciousness! The meals here are totally satisfying.
MG Road is an iconic landmark in the city of Bangalore. Here you will find some of the best stores for ethnic apparel, jewelry, bags, and shoes, as well as some lovely art, craft works, and antiques — mostly handmade by local artisans!
This interactive science center provides a great platform for teaching adults and children about science and technology. Each of its floors offers a dedicated space to scientific disciplines. Look for the Electro-Technical Gallery, Engine Hall, and Space Gallery!
The Bangalore Palace will take you by surprise and charm you with its elegance. With architecture and design hinting at Windsor Castle in England, the Bangalore Palace boasts spiral parapets, fortified towers, and arches.
After all that walking, a short stop-over at this divine spa will help release all the tension and relieve any muscle pain. Give your feet some rest and pamper yourself here. The signature foot reflexology lasts about 30 minutes to an hour — it will definitely sort you out!
Toit is the brewpub that started the revolutionary brewing culture in Bangalore. It is the culmination of bodacious brews, fabulous foods, and a passion for providing the ultimate brewpub experience that was born when three friends quit their jobs to make it happen. It’s located in the heart of all the action — 100 Feet Road near Indiranagar, which is always buzzing with energy and great vibes!
From unique ice cream creations to fudge cake and thick shakes, no one serves up ultimate indulgence like Corner House! Stop by here for a tasty end to the evening, and be sure to try the famous DBC ('death by chocolate') flavor.
