Notes on Bengaluru (The Garden City) – Old city mayhem, transport apps, and fancy airports

Bengaluru is the third largest city in India, located in the middle of the Deccan Plateau in South India. I was in Bengaluru on the way to somewhere else.

With a population of over 10 million people Bengaluru qualifies as a megacity, and that qualifies me to have anoth...

The extension is from Hua Lamphong (the main railway station), through Chinatown, Rattanakosin (the old city), and then under the river to western side of Bangkok. The Blue Line has now been extended and is a circle line (or more like a lopsided b or q ...
