Bangalore is one of the largest cities in India. Once famous for its tranquil green spaces it is now a busting centre of commerce and business. Whilst many parts of this beautiful destination are steeped in history and tradition, notably the city’s many temples, Bangalore is also regarded as the “Silicon Valley of India,” with a cutting-edge economy that is focused on IT and high-tech industries.
One of the busiest airports in the world, London Heathrow is at the very epicentre of the international air transport network. Investment has been poured into its development, and in 2014 the newly constructed Terminal 5 was voted World's Best Airport Terminal in the Skytrax Annual World Airport Awards.
Handling more than 73 million passengers a year, London Heathrow is a remarkable feat of logistical organisation. Fly from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways to a wide range of destinations all over the world.
Transportation and parking
London Heathrow is served by the London Underground ‘tube’ service, making it easy to reach in just half an hour, from the very centre of London. For passengers with Qatar Airways flying from Terminal 4, the terminal has its own dedicated tube station.
There are also hundreds of buses every day from the capital, and coach services transporting passengers from all over the city to the airport. Parking is at a premium, and although there are both short and long-term options, it is best to book parking in advance. A valet service is available. Note that there is a 2.6-metre height restriction on Terminal 4’s forecourt.

Originally known as the ‘Garden City of India’ Bangalore is now a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that is regarded as one of the best places to live in India. Its energy and almost frenetic pace is offset with some beautifully tranquil gardens and parks.
If you book a flight to Bangalore with Qatar Airways for business or pleasure you’ll discover a fascinating city that offers everyone a warm and typically Indian welcome.
Bangalore is the epicentre of India’s burgeoning IT industry, but away from the brand new steel and glass buildings are a host of older, more sedate locations that charm all who visit them. This is old Bangalore, and it is well worth seeking out for a glimpse of the city’s complex past.
The best way to see tourist attractions in Bangalore is to take a guided tour, as this will not only give you a more rounded idea of the history of each building, but will also work out considerably cheaper than paying entrance fees at each attraction.
Bangalore Palace was constructed by the Maharajahs of Mysore, and is filled with exotic artworks, beautiful carving and ornate architectural details. Tipu Sultan's Palace, which dates from around 1790, is a little unusual in that it is constructed mainly from wood with beautifully embellished arches, columns and balconies.
The city is full of temples, many of which have giant statues dominating the structures. They are well worth visiting for the artistic value of the carvings, paintings and details. And if you want to get away from the heat and noise of the city for a while, head to the peace and tranquility of Ulsoor Lake and Sankey Tank.
