Like most of them in Bangalore, I am a software professional, new to the city. I heard a lot about Bangalore and that there are so many beautiful locations in and around the city. Please share a few places you know, where I can go and just relax.

Bangalore is a city full of identical shopping malls. There isn't much to see in the city itself. There is Lal Bagh, Cubbon Park, Vidhana Soudha, Bangalore Palace, HAL Museum, Visvesvaraya Technological Museum - that's it, I guess. There are tons of beautiful weekend getaways very close to Bangalore - Nandi Hills, Masinagudi, Bandipur, Mysore, Ooty, Yercaud etc. You could go for treks around Bangalore - try YHAI (Youth Hostels Association of India) or BMC (Bangalore Mountaineering Club) or some other trekking group.
