I have travelled from Bangalore to Kanyakumari by Kanyakumati Express. Comparing the fare with other mode of transport, I can say it was best, ignoring few inconvenience such as unclean toilet etc. Food was reasonably charged and tasty. It is the best way to save money and travel.

This is the first time I travelled in my XUV, after I owned it. It is a pleasurable drive and I zipped in just 6 hours. Road is very good and thanks to Ex-PM Vajapayee for such a vision of making this quadrilateral possible. without such a wonderful road I would not have take this road.

Overall ok there was no issue with boarding time and also reached the destination on time. Nothing bad with staff behaviour and we chose sleeper coach. The seat was good and they provide enough stops during journey for refreshments and toilets.

Travel by train was pleasant, started on time. As we entered Kerala it was raining, route had a lot of greenery with very pleasant climate. It was a breathtaking view when we crossed bridges and tunnels.

Amazing view to watch, truly Kerala is God's own country. This beautiful scenery lasted till we reached Kanyakumari.

Toilets in train need to be maintained clean.

Travel experience was very good in VOLVO A/C bus, with bus leaving the boarding point at time. The facility was as good as expected. The bus speed was good and hardly stuck on traffic.
The only thing which was not satisfactory was no timed stop for traveller toilet. Specially for ladies, there was no planned stoppage and this we did not like in bus travel.

Before I start about hotel, I want to say that I love travelling but due to fast working life hardly I can make out, some time to out of Bangalore for fun.
