"A scenic journey"

Posted 11 Nov

Travelled by: Train

Travelled as: Solo

I boarded Kochuvelli express from majestic railway station at 5PM and i was supposed to reach Kollam by early morning. Kollam is around 30 kms from varkala, so public transport is available from there . Kanyakumari express from bangalore goes directly to Varkala railway station, but tickets should be booked around a month back . Train got delayed by 6 hours . train running late was rather a boon, i got to see kerala countryside from my train window . It was beautiful . Although i had to cancel my plans for the day, it seemed worth it .

"Clean Bus and On time"

Posted 6 Jan

The bus service is timely and punctual. Clean bus with good drivers and they get you to the destination on time. Regular buses from Bangalore and easy on the pocket. The service can be tracked regularly via gps as the company sends you regular updates and you are able to track where your bus is. The information of the driver is sent to you via text message two hours prior to the journey (Extremely helpful).
