"Excellent drive!"

The drive from Bangalore to Coimbatore was simply excellent. We opted for the Krishnagiri-Salem-Coimbatore route. About 320+ kms and took us all of 5 hours. We started early from Bangalore at about 5 a.m. and at a comfortable pace we arrived at our hotel in Coimbatore by 11 a.m. (I'm told most can reach Coimbatore much quicker but we took longer; this with a couple of short break stops along the way). ROADS: The big plus is the roadways. Highway most of the way and very well kempt roads. We had absolutely no trouble at all and the drive was extremely peaceful. Also maybe we lucked out on a holiday because it wasn't very crowded and the roads were quite a delight. VIEW: Also I never knew this but the roads to Coimbatore offered some scenic views. All this put together, ensured us a pr ...Read More

"Pretty unknown bus, but I must say that I was not disappointed"

I had to travel at the last min, so all the KPN's and the SRS, CONTI had been booked. Only this was available. So thats how Swamy Ayyappa travels were booked from Madiwala. I was not having high hopes on this sleeper. But I was astonished when I got an SMS at the expected time, that this is where the BUS is and this is how long before it will reach you. I could actually do a bus tracking. Then when the bus came, that was an absolute stunner, it was a pretty new bus with a neat and clean set of beds. The punctuality of drop was also very good.

"A relaxed weekend trip"

This is a trip if you want to go away from chaos of Bangalore. We started at 3:30 am taking Marathahalli - Electronic City - Krishnagiri - Salem - Coimbatore. Road conditions are very good with signs and diversions are properly marked. Toll charges will come around 425/- that is standard. Since we started early traffic was very less and we could maintain a speed of approx 72 Kmph (including breaks). We were in Coimbatore by 8:45 am and to our surprise such a nice infra for a such small city. Return trip started on sunday around 10 am on sunday and the roads are so good that you are restricted by car. (not even traffic). However post Salem Bangalore traffic joined and the speed reduced a lot and tolls took almost 20 + mins to cross. By 4:45 we were in attibele after which Ban ...Read More

Boarded the train at Coimbatore junction enroute to Bangalore. Since it was late night the train arrived around 10.45 pm, so food was not available at that time, also no idea whether there is a pantry car in the train. After boarding the train just slept and woke up early in the morning at Bangalore. The hospitality and accommodation was good in the train.

"Road Drive Is Fun"

It is safe to drive to Coimbatore from Bangalore due to the express way only for the toll charges which will be about Rs.400/- one-way. While going from Bangalore you can stop at Krishnagiri at A2B for a bite and have lunch in Coimbatore or if late there are good hotels are available on Salem-Erode stretch ( Saravana Bhavan).\r\n \r\nEvening time only crossing the Salem stretch in peak timing like 5.30Pm to 7.00 Pm is bit congested due to office goers other wise it is good drive.\r\n\r\nMorning traffic is pretty decent ...
