Hi. We're considering accepting a job-offer in Bangalore, anybody can help out with some information on Expat life there such as general conditions, availability of "western" goods & foodstuffs, medical care, international kindergartens/pre-schools, cultural events, music scene etc.??

We've been living in Taiwan for a few years now but are uncertain whether or not, or to which extent, this experience might have prepared us for a life in India ...

Some pointers about good web-sites about this topic (other than IndiaMike ...) are also appreciated as our searches have come up with precious little so far.

Thanks, B.

Bangalore is very easy for westerners to live in. I have been going there since 1970, on various projects and the irony is that it has almost nothing of interest to tourists. Just friendly people, arguably the best (by far!) climate of any big city there and jobs and a big tech industry and all the "stuff" you could ever want. lots of booze joints too, lol.
