Bangalore preview

India

Bangalore is a relatively safe city, though, like any major city, common sense should be exercised and standard precautions should be taken.

Organized crime has little presence in the city, however, pick-pocketing and burglary does exist like anywhere else, perhaps added to due to the great divide between wealthy and poor. That said, weapons are not common and the burglary/theft that does occur usually doesn't involve any harm or even confrontation. Most often, the thefts are committed while the home is free of people or all have retired for the evening. Gated communities and apartments with security are the easiest way to avoid any such threats.
