"Comfortable seats and a good bus "

I always book in KPN to travel to Coimbatore. If possible book an AC bus. It is top of the class. Bus is too good, seats are very comfortable. Nice push-back seats. Safe and comfortable journey and I had a good sleep. Advice : Go for it. It is the best you can get.

Had lots of fun as it was a group of friends travelling together. It was a sudden plan we had one of the best time travelling. The only difficulties that we faced was finding routes as there was no proper signs or way directions. Had few good resturants on the way. Return back was more fun as we all took a bottle of wine and was drinking expect the guy driving for sure.

"The last 50 km are not in a good condition"

My 6 hours journey by car from Coimbatore to Pondicherry via Salem, Ulundurpet and Villupuram was very good except for a stretch of 50 km from Villupuram to Pondicherry. The total distance is about 380 km. The last stretch of 50 is toll free road and it is not in a good condition.



"Good ride"

Nice to travel across in the car crossing the green fields and typical village houses. It was good to view the lakes, birds and whole lot of village houses on the way. Nice tender coconut was also available at low cost. A must see place is Srimusham (Lord Boovaraha) which is one of the Divya Desam.

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