The schedule of the air line was just right for the trip from Bangalore to Thiruvananthapura. The flight connected with a minimum wait at the Bangalore International airport where I arrived via Lufthansa from Frankfurt. This was the most convenient flight. The flight reached on time to Thiruvananthapuram. A pre-arranged taxi (car) took us for sight seeing of Kanyakumari and other places. The return journey by Air India was equally superb. Based on the service at both airports, I would always take the Air India International flight to Mali for this destination from Bangalore. In fact, I have done so several times in the past two years.
Travelling is always a favourite thing in life. We need to travel often to rejuvenate ourselves. We started from Bangalore and our destination was Kanyakumari. We had planned this trip for whole one week. We enjoyed the best of Tamilnadu heritage throughout.
One must travel South to know the people culture who lives very close to nature. The road throughout is awesome, thanks to Tamil Nadu government. We also been to Dindigal to taste the famous Dindigal biriyani. Our next stop was at temple city ie, Madurai. It is very rich city in culture.
Then we went to Rameshwaram we we lost ourselves to the scenic beauty of the place. Its heaven on earth. Finally we went to Kanyakumari and reached our destination! One must travel to Kanyakumari atleast once in a life to see the end of the great country India.
SRS Bus was very good and we are reaching on-time with this bus and bus condition was very good with facilities. Bus maintenance was very good and enjoyed a lot in the bus with nice sleep and enjoyed the travel. Good travel with this bus and good facilities with this bus. Overall, we enjoyed a lot.
The service was good, from home to main bus stop and also to the destination, but their package of Madurai, Rameshwar and Kanyakumari is worst arrangement, hopeless!! That's it would never ever go with their packages!! but SRS Buses and staff are fine!
I travelled from Trivendrum to Kanyakumari by road on a taxi. It took 3.5 hrs in a single road. Only advantage is you can cover few places like, Poovar, Padmanabhapuram Palace, Nagorcoil Temple and Sucindram Temple. Not much hotels enroute so its better to have it in Trivendrum and in Kanyakumari.
