Meet the InterNations Expatriate Community of Bangalore!
Namaste, and welcome to the InterNations Bangalore Community. If you're relocating to Bangalore, you'll find all the detailed information you need in our comprehensive guides. As an international platform, we aim to help you through your initial move and continuing new life in Bangalore.
Moving to a new city can be daunting and will throw up many unexpected obstacles, but here, you're not alone. If you can't find the answer to your question in our guides, just ask our friendly and experienced expats in our forum. Just like you, our members have relocated to Bangalore and have probably faced the same dilemmas; let their advice and experience give you peace of mind as you set up your home, settle into a new job, and get to grips with the cuisine. Feel free to ask questions like, "what vaccinations do I need?", "how do I find the best healthcare?", and "who do I need to register with?" — our members will also help with the everyday questions from recommending a restaurant to pointing the way to sports facilities.
Curious to explore other communities in Asia & Oceania, e.g. our chapter for Expats Abu Dhabi? Or you might think of stopping by at our Expatriates Khobar (Eastern Prov community on your next weekend trip.

Bangalore Expat Guide
Your New Life in Bangalore
Bangalore is a city of contrasts, from the luxurious, high cost of living for one section of the community to the less affluent urban communities; generally, foreigners enjoy a good standard of living in this busy city. The industries of employment include a strong grounding in IT and biotechnology as well as electronic engineering and automotive manufacturing. Multi-national companies often recruit highly skilled workers from all over the world, as do venture capital companies settling in the "Silicon Valley of India".
A diverse selection of international cuisine is available, from high-class restaurants to popular street foods. The local cuisine is influenced by Chinese, Thai, South Indian, North Indian, and Muslim dishes, with vegetarian Udupi restaurants also gaining popularity. You'll find curry, chutney, and kebabs sitting side by side with worldwide dishes from Italy and Spain.
As time passes you'll notice that celebrations from Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity are observed as well as secular holidays like Valentine's Day. These religious celebrations reflect the blend of cultures in this busy, crowded city and add a festive energy to the calendar.
