Nice travel in train on return journey, but while going we had to wait till 11:30PM to get something to eat. We get to meet lot of nice people. My parents were sitting in the train for the first time and they were very happy and not tired. Better to travel in AC during summer.

The roads were very good and we did travel at night and all. Did not had any problems. The people were friendly too to guide us when we wanted any help. Very well maintained roads. We did travel by our own car, it was Ford Classic and it was a much relaxed drive. More »
