A good journey

We started early at the morning, we usually start early morning to avoid traffics on the road. We travelled by our own cars we love to drive yourself. Because it is comfortable as we could stop anywhere as we wish. We saw too many hotels and dhabas on the way.

Roads are in good condition but weather is not great

Mode of Transport: Bus

Travel was good, roads were good, weather isn't so great. Stayed in town for 2 weeks roaming around the town traffic is normal. KSRTC is good to travel as its cheap and reliable. No blankets, water just travel. I would suggest for any one who wants to travel to Madurai.

Mode of Transport: Bus

I had boarded KPN Scania bus on Friday. Look was awesome. But the seat was full of Bed Bugs. I was not able to sit even. The same bus came for return as well on Sunday with same amount of bed bugs. They are not cleaning it properly. Kindly take proper action. It will be difficult to travel like this in future.
