Ongole is a city situated in Andhra Pradesh, is a blend of several cultures. This ancient city is richly filled with historical evidences and inscriptions belonging from the yore. This evident city is well connected with roadways. A journey from Ongole is a comfortable 8 hours bus travel experience to Bangalore.
I booked online bus tickets from Redbus, the bus travel experience was a pleasant one. The online bus booking option lowered my hassles and it was cost effective too. I opted for an APSRTC Garuda Semi Sleeper bus. It is a state owned bus service that was comfortable and I faced no problems while booking bus tickets from the bus reservation platform.
After a long time, I came up with plans to visit Bangalore. After all, this city is bestowed with a plethora of attractions that keep pulling tourists from all over the globe. The rich feel of development and good road connectivity with other major cities makes Bangalore a popular place of visit in India. I always wanted to experience this city!
I boarded the bus from Ongole bus pick up point at 7:30pm and reached Bangalore at 7am. It was a travelling by bus for almost 12 hours, where the bus transport gave rest stops. The bus came with clean interiors and polite bus staff who took good care of passengers.
While travelling with the aid of bus just keep in mind to hold your headphones in your hand and pack some rapid snacks to munch on, these will absolutely eliminate your boring instances. You are going to cross by way of a number of scenic areas, lush fields and lovely highways. Ultimately, my ride was mostly during the night time so the scenes were not clearly visible via the windowpanes.
As soon as I reached Bangalore, I quickly took a Cab from the bus stop to my friend’s place and grabbed some quick rest at her place! Later narrated the experience of my solo bus travelling to my friend. Make sure to visit the Bangalore palace which possesses great architecture and beauty at the same time. The palace has maintained its old world charm and can very well provide tourists a glimpse in the rich cultural history of this place. It is considered to be the central attraction in Bangalore and the palace was built in the year 1878. Charmarajendra bought the original property from the British guardians in the year 1873. The palace is quite huge and is spread across 45000 sq. ft. It is based on Scotish architecture. The royal culture of those times is depicted through beautiful carvings both on the inside and the outside of the wooden structure. Apart from being a major tourist destination the palace also hosts several cultural programmes in its premises. In recent times several rock shows and marriages have been held here. It is believed that King Charmarajendra drew inspiration from the Windsor castle of London. It hosts granite seats decorated with fluorescent blue tiles on the ground floor. The walls have been adorned with Raja Ravi Varma’s paintings.
