While I appreciate the author for providing the inside view of the best places to visit in Bengaluru, how can she forget forget the fact about doing a shopping in the best places of Bengaluru. I think Kalasipalayam or the Avenue Road area is the best place to do shopping for various articles and products. The whole sale shops for fancy items, cloths, cosmetics and readymades are available in plenty. More over the rates charged in Bengaluru whole sale market is very low. Hope the readers of this article shall take note of it and make shopping there.
