Although Bus journey was comfortable enough in the sleeper, the pit stops weren't clean enough. Pick-up time was almost correct and drop time was before the ETA. Can provide water to make it a better travel. Also the option of blankets or bedsheets can be there for different customers.

The train travel was good. It was a bit crowded and noisy but the overall travel was good. I had used the Tuticorin Express. It was delayed by half an hour at the Bangalore city junction but this was not much of a problem. The arrival at Madurai was on time and overall the train travel was good.

Great motoring experience from Banglore to Madurai, it took almost 7 hrs with a couple of coffee breaks on the way. The overall experience is good. But despite paying road tax, sales tax and service tax etc, its painful for one has to pay the tolls at may locations. Madurai is city of temples and a centre place to visit three places, Trichy, Ramanad and Rameswaram. It has the nearest Airport to go to Kodaikanal Hill Station.

Recently I drove to Madurai and Rameshwarm on Honda Mobilio (4 Adult, 3 kid). We started from Bangalore at 5.30 and reached Madurai at 12.30 with two break. Route is wonderful. After Darshan of Meenakshi Temple, we started for Rameshwaram. The road is good but 2 lane only so it took almost 4 hrs ( we were tired also).

Great Tamil Nadu roads with huge tolls collected, 6 lane roads. Food available on the way with many restaurants available on the way. Good food is also available. Be careful if its a peak season like weekend holidays as it would be crowded. Few km in between is ghat section. Night travel would be difficult as many lorries are driving around.
