"Food and other refreshments were served from the pantry"

Travelled as: Solo

The Nilagiris Express (12672) is always on time, because it starts at 7-45 pm at Mettupalayam and goes to Chennai via Coimbatore. My acccommodation class is 2 AC. The seats were in good condition. Travellers can take food items either at Erode or Salem. The toilets are clean. Food, water and other refreshments are served from the pantry car. The bedding, towel are very clean. I was never harassed for tips. The staff in the train serves with smiling face.

The air travel from Coimbatore to Chennai hardly takes fifty minutes. The airline staff are very courteous and offer the seats as per the passenger's preference. The journey was comfortable and reached Chennai at the correct time. The baggages were delivered in a short time and the exit from the airport was also smooth.

Travelled as: Solo

Travelling by train is relaxing. I do not get tired. Preferably travelling in the night time and saving the time by travelling in the train. Cost effective too. Also it is comfortable as train starts on time most of the time and reaches safely on time. There are more than five trains to Chennai from Coimbatore.

I took the intercity express because the timing was convenient. I travelled in second class and the seating arrangements were really good. At Ambur we had biryani and it was really very tasty. Inside the train we were offered food, water etc. at nominal rates. The toilets were not neat and there was bad smell at all time. We recommend others not to use toilet, they can get infected.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
