Daily train - Departure time to ensure office is completed and to ensure you reach office next day. Doesnt waste any time a complete overnight journey. Covers 662 km in less than 12 hrs time.

Maintainence was good. Coaches good. Food was available through caterers though train lacked a Pantry car. Rake belonged to SWR based at Bangalore. Ticket high demand and need to be booked as early as possible.

Flight was pleasant. We had visited the Plaza airport lounge at Bangalore airport for breakfast so we didn't order any snacks/breakfast on the flight. Was not really impressed by Kochi airport apart from the fact that it is the first airport to be powered entirely by solar power.

It was nice trip and I had slept because my train started evening time so I woke up at early morning one hour before to reach the Kochi, its so cool and greenish color view and enjoyed lot. Had coffee over there nice taste. Train toilets are ok and they offered food but so expensive with less quantity and every item is expensive, thought to take outside only but I was in hurry to catch up the train. Everything was so clean and nice. Co-travellers who travelled along with me were so friendly, offered their dinner too.

The train from Yeshwantpur leaves from Platform No.2 and is completely A/C. The fare is relatively less as it is a Garib Rath. Bedding needs to be booked at the time of booking tickets. The toilets and seats were clean. We had a comfortable journey in the train. The train left on time and to our surprise it reached Ernakulam Town before it's scheduled arrival time.

Overall travel was great. Take an auto outside the airport to go to the city. Or there are volvo buses outside. In flight, service was also awesome. There are good places for shopping at the airport. One umbrella seller has variety of designs with her.
