It is amazing to go to puri by car. You will see all the spot between Puri and Bhubaneswar. Also you can go to Konark without any disturbance. Now the road between Puri and bbsr is very good. There is also better transportation system like bus, train are available at all time. But in car it has some other experience which you can enjoy by only your personal car.

Great journey of hours

Oct 12, 2015
Mode of Transport: Bus

we travelled in AC city bus which we boarded from Bhubaneshwar to Puri. It took around 2 hours or more to reach the bus stand. The fair was 100. And the bus didn't have any stoppage. We took all the food and water before boarding the bus as we did know about its direct journey.

The journey is comfortable but my advice to the solo travellers would be to carry some good music on your phone, take some magazines and snacks are must for it.

Worth travelling but the train was crowded

Aug 15, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

It was a worthy travel. Although personally I didn't like because of the huge crowd and hawkers buying /selling. In the beach strip which is supposed to be fun. Lord Jagannaath is considered as the supreme God of all Hindus residing in Odisha. Puri is located at the scenic shoreline of Odisha and due to its amazing weather.
