Train was on time at Howrah Station and we boarded the train. Train was a clean one with clean toilet and clean bed sheets and towels. Food was available in the train as it was having a pantry car with water and other facilities were available.

"A good overnight journey"

I boarded the train from New Delhi railway station as these days most of the trains are from other stations. This was an overnight journey so it was good because my friend told me that there might be a problem travelling at night if we reach Varansi in odd hours and this was the best suitable train. We finished our office work and then did get our food packed. We were awakened till 10 pm and then we slept. When we woke up guess what, we were in Varanasi. The train was clean and it’s not overcrowded unlike other trains. Overall this was a very good journey and this kind of journeys I like the most.

Its not like Mumbai airport, majority of travelers still use trains for Varanasi, so the airports are not they crowded and developed, its almost 22 km away from the city, but you would easily find cab services and all. Just remember you are in a heritage city to enjoy its heritage not luxury.

"A journey with lot of toll plazas"

The toll plazas enroute killed us almost. There were around 10 toll plazas with horrible staff, who were always engrossed only in chatting among themselves. Despite of long queues forming at the plazas. Also the highway requires more highway restaurants as at present there are hardly any.

As usual I traavelled in Jet Airways the Airline which offers very good services and in flight experience, everything was excellent other than food provided. Services at Varanasi Airport are very limited and Airport is quite far from the main city.

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