Mode of Transport: Train

Train experience was awesome on the whole. And there were no delays during the arrival and the climate was awesome after and many people live at Bangalore who can easily understand Tamil and English. So it was more easier to locate my hotel. Train journey was peaceful saw a movie also in the train. And it just takes 5 hours to reach from Chennai and we won't be much bored during the journey.

Worth a ride

Mode of Transport: Bus

I was travelling to Bangalore this time around in a bus for a change, it is a different story that I have used most of the other options for reaching this destination.

But this option was good because I was travelling in the night and I did not pick a ac because it reaches early in the morning to Bangalore always has a lovely early morning weather and I took the KSRTC bus with two sleeper sets with total privacy curtains and the journey was so smooth that I never found that we have reached a breakpoint so fast and after refreshment the rest of the journey was also very comfortable. In short I liked the journey and would certainly recommend to business or official persons to take this journey which I am sure will recharge them in no time when they reach the destination.

Train journey offers a Beautiful views seen many trees

I really liked the train journey in Brindavan express where the seatings were top notch and i really liked the foods inside the train they were upto my expectations.

We can easily sit comfortably and there is a lot of space in between the rows and we can have a nice breeze as the fans were working up to the mark.

There were around 6 fans for every columns and around 12 members can sit and enjoy the ride.

I really liked the samosa in jolarpettai station on the way to bangalore.

If i go via this station I am sure I will buy samosa.

They were selling Idly's, Dosa, Pongal and vada and cool drinks like pepsi, coke etc.

Water bottles were neatly packed and cheap so even low class people can afford.

Toilets were not up to the mark but way more than my expectations.

As its a day time travel i don't have time for checking the beds.

Really loved the journey.
