Journey via Salem and the road is very good

Apr 1, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

I started my journey by my own car i20 in the morning around 6. 45 am and reached Coimbatore city in the evening around 5. 30pm with a break of about 2 hrs in between. Selected my journey via Salem and the road is very good. Did not feel tiredness of the drive. Just after entering the Coimbatore city from NH 67, experienced traffic as we normally found Chennai also. However, it was good to drive with more confident within the city. To reach Hotel Vijay Park Inn, we used GPS and located the route easily, however, took some help of some local people where we were bit confused. Reached the final destination within the time.

Clean peaceful ride wihtout any hassle

Travelled from Chennai to Coimbatore via Uluindurpet, Athur. This was a toll road all the way up-to Coimbatore.

I could reach Coimbatore in eight hours of leisurely driving. You could have save another half hour if I had left Chennai early in the morning say 6 Am instead of 10 Am, I chose to start.

One can take a break at Salem for food. Adyar Ananda Bhavan has good restaurant in the Salem by pass road and hence no need to go into the city.

I would recommend this route instead of the Kirhsnagairi, Dharmapuri route which would be another 50 km extra.

Road is worth to travel

Mode of Transport: Car

It was just a relaxed drive to Coimbatore by car. Traffic is worse till Chengalpet from Chennai and rest of the parts are smooth. Road is worth to travel. Well laid. However toll rates are quite high and increasing frequently. Lot of food options available alongside the road.

Interesting and Fun

Mode of Transport: Taxi

Quite a scenic scenario on the way to Coimbatore. It makes you feel the breeze all the way from Ooty. The roads are good not the ones like you find in the cities nowadays. All the more the trip was fun ...Playing with friends was also the headline of the trip..
