"Great trip to Trichy by 4 lane national highway"

Lovely driving down to Trichy on the 4 lane national highway. Once you get past the hurry and hustle of Chennai and its suburbs, it is a smooth ride with lovely scenic views and good eateries. The speed limit is set at 80 Kmph which is decent and one need not over speed to cover the 324 odd km. Distance can easily be covered in 5 hours with atleast two 15 minutes breaks.

The NH is straight. Nicely maintained. Except the toll plaza's the journey was smooth. Flat 4 hours is what it takes to reach Trichy. Once you reach Google map or take guidance, as the entrance to the city and route to Bus Stand is quite tricky. All restaurants are available only to Villupuram. The entire stretch from Villupuram to Trichy via Perambulur is clear with less traffic.

The road trip to Trichy was awesome with such a nice road being laid down. Travelling with your friends to the place in this route gives a great time. You need to take care of your food as there are very few good restaurants on the way. The ECR Route is also awesome with some great locations on the route.

"Five & half hours journey in humid conditions!"

I took 2nd class compartment for my journey and it was a simple experience. The train stops at major stations and you can see food vendors trying to sell you tea, coffee, eateries, cakes, sweets etc. A word of warning: Do not ever buy food stuff sold on the train. Most of the food are not prepared well and it is also stored in unhygienic conditions. If you are travelling by first class better take a plane rather than train. But if you want to experience the mass transport system and enjoy the crowd just get into the second class compartment and enjoy the joyride.
