Fun things to do in Bangalore for a day trip

Tired from everyday life? Want to release your stress on the Bangalore getaway? Well, if the answer is yes, then there are several fascinating things that you can do in the breathtaking locations of Bangalore to boost your energy. This city is not only famous for its alluring locations, educational institutions and employment opportunities, but it also provides fun activities for the guests to engage in.

Since I have been residing in Mumbai for the past 4 years due to work, I haven’t had a getaway ever since then. So, last year, I planned to visit the ‘garden city’ with my friends and booked my flight from one of the Mumbai to Bangalore flights available online and was quite eager to try out several activities in this city. Since I just had one day to explore the city, I chalked out my itinerary likewise and made the following plan for a day trip.

Enjoyed rides at the WonderLa Amusement Park

After having breakfast in my hotel, the first thing we did in the morning was visited the WonderLa Amusement Park. Yes, that’s right! Amusement parks are quite fun with friends and therefore, we included this in our itinerary. Wonderla is located on the city outskirts and is a beautiful water park with thrilling rides and pools. If you are willing to visit here, carry an extra set of clothes for the water sports and activities. I tried out several rides here which included the gigantic roller coaster as well. Roller coasters have always fascinated me and here too, it was not an exception. It was almost afternoon by the time we were done having fun at the Park and then we went to play paintball at Paintball X. 

Played paintball at Paintball X

We took a cab and headed straight over to Western Avenue. Paintballing is a rarely practised sport in our country and when I came to know about this gem, I simply couldn’t resist it. A military uniform and a covered helmet were provided to us at the entrance and we got pretty pumped up for what was awaiting our group. Within the paintball zone, we were handed guns loaded with paintballs and we had to target each other and shoot the paintballs. I was a first-timer at this and was pretty nervous regarding the technicalities of the game. But with each shot, I got accustomed to this thrilling sport and came out very satisfied. We played for an hour and then went to the MG’s fine dining restaurant for a sumptuous lunch.

Had lunch at MG’s Fine Dining and Bar

After gathering incredible amusement park and paintball experiences, we were quite hungry and wanted to have something heavy to satisfy our cravings. Therefore, we went to MG’s Fine Dining and Bar and ordered a bowl of mixed vegetables, Navratan pulao, roomali rotis and a bowl of steaming hot chicken butter masala for ourselves. The more we had the food, the more we were impressed with the fine quality of it despite the cheap rates. We enjoyed our lunch in peace and also gossiped for a long time while savouring the food. If you are looking for good quality North Indian food in Bangalore, you can head over to this place without giving it a second thought. Trust me, it is worth all your money.

Went shopping at Majestic Market

The last thing that we did before calling off for the day was to go shopping at the Majestic Market. This place can also be regarded as the treasure chest of the city since it houses a range of several antique pieces suitable for both home and wall decor. I got my hands on a couple of wooden hanging lanterns, a big vase made of brass and a wooden showpiece for my living room. Besides, this place also has various stalls that sell good-quality clothes and economical prices. My friends got some trendy clothes and accessories for themselves and their families here. Since I had already shopped a lot, I bought a couple of kurtas and that was pretty much it. After exploring the market for hours, we finally went back to our hotels with smiles on our faces.

So, this is how we made a one-day plan to the garden city and indulged in thrilling activities for a much-needed break. You can refer to our itinerary, or even better create your own and head to this breathtaking city and break loose from everyday life by participating in the fun activities, this city has to offer.
