Train journey from Chennai to Madurai was good and reached on time

Aug 31, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Pearl city express is Super Fast Express, so you can count on it for reaching on time.

You need to get down at Madurai, have snacks near Railway Station and from there, go to Arappalayam Bus Stand. Bus will leave from there at 6. 10 Am. It will not be crowded much, so you can have relaxed travel.

They will stop for breakfast in a small hotel at Tamilnadu/Kerala border. The food was nice there. You can have good breakfast at cheap price. Then head onto the mountain.

The bus will go through steep hair pin bends will stirrup Adrenaline in your body for sure. If you want to have more adventurous mountain ride, go in bus. You wont get this experience in Car.

Then, Finally you will reach Munnar around 11. 30 am.

While return we took the other path to Reach Ernakulam. We boarded Kerala SRTC bus from Munnar around 6. 30 Am and reached Ernakulam around 1 Pm.

Usually, while coming down from hill areas, some will feel vomiting sensation. So it is better to book NON A/C car downhill as you wont feel suffocated and you will be comfortable.

Overall, the journey was a good experience.

Average travel experience and food served was bad

Jun 23, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

I travelled by train on my own expense in 2 A/C class. It's good but the food is very worst in this train. Its very bad food, please don't but that. Morning 6 Am it reached the Ernakulam Station, but the pick-up from the Station got delayed by 1 hour. After that it was good and the driver also very good and friendly manner.

Long train journey and time consuming

Apr 10, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

If you want to reach Munnar the best way is to reach is via Madurai and Dindigul, so I suggest to take any other train to Madurai and Dindugal and I dont not suggest to take the Palani Express as it is more than 10 hrs journey. From Palani I have to take the car again which has taken 15 hrs to reach Munnar from Chennai. If you take Dindugal or Madurai train you will reach in 7 hrs and from there 3 hrs journey by car to Munnar.

Clean toilets but no sufficient water in the coaches

Dec 2, 2014
Mode of Transport: Train

Alleppey Express, its arrives on time and the train is in good condition. I travelled in second class with my colleges and the train goes via Vellore, Kadpadi, etc. etc. I slept in the train and when I woke up I didn't know where I was but its nice to see out from the window, the long forest, hills and the cute trees.

Train is somewhat good but water is not enough in the coaches. Toilets are clean and beddings are good, electricity is not there and only few plugs are working.

Good journey at reasonable price but poor cleanliness

Nov 24, 2014
Mode of Transport: Train

1. Because it is cheaper and time saving journey.
2. 2nd seating does not have any interesting thing but the journey is good.
3. In train the cleanliness is very bad. Railway dept has to take care. They have not provided any refreshment and all.
