Generally, the 1st preference goes to train owing to lesser cost and more comfort. But on Bangalore-Mysore section, trains also happens to be faster and more of all start from the center of the City

Though morning trains are more convenient, this train has an advantage of leaving later in the day from Bangalore (10:30) and hence the crowd is lesser. Though this has an overtake by the Shatabdi, it generally reaches on time owing to short turn around time. More comfortable with me, my mom and dad sitting comfortably in the train all the way to Mysore from Bangalore.

Overall, trains are better as the train took just 2 hrs 35 minutes on that day to reach Mysore which was equal to journey by a Volvo. It was awesome.

Convenient to travel Bangalore to Mysore anytime. There are two alternative routes, one is via Bidadi-Ramanagara-Maddur-Mandya. The other is via Kanakapura- Malavalli. The first route is bigger though gets a bit crowded on weekends and the second route is more winding and has less chaos. Distance is almost similar.

Plenty of buses are available apart from taxis. There are loads of eating options on the way ranging from darshini hotels to coffee days to more fancier outlets. Great for a short break and one can also continue to Ooty or Coorg from Mysore.

We had to attend a marriage in Mysore during the weekend, so we started our journey to Mysore at 7 in the morning to avoid peak traffic during the day. The weather was cool, misty and excellent! We took a break at Kamat Lokaruchi located in Ramanagar to have our breakfast and then resumed our journey to Mysore. We reached Mysore around 10:30 am and the journey was very pleasant and we spent memorable time with our family during the journey. I will have fond memories of this trip and I have a strong desire to visit Mysore again to witness the world famous Jumbo Savari that will be held in October this year.

Mysore is one of the most important tourist centers of Karnataka. This is also popularly known as the 'Sandalwood City of India', I travel Mysore almost every year, especially during Dusserah.

We left early in the morning around 7 Am from Bangalore to avoid the city traffic. Around 8.30 we had breakfast at Bidadi. The roads are in good condition. We reached Sringapatna around 10.30. Visited Tipu Sultans Dome. Relaxed for one hour, then reached Mysore around 11.00 Am. First we went to Mysore Zoo and spent more than two hours in the Mysore Zoo. Rest of the day we went to see Mysore palace and other interesting places around Mysore.

My kids enjoy visiting Mysore. They like visiting the Brindivan Gardens, Mysore Palace, Chamundi Hills, Balmuri Falls the best and biggest Zoo in India.

I will not be wrong to say that the city of Mysore still retains the old world charm in the shadowed alleys and thoroughfares. The temples, magnificent palaces and luxuriant gardens are the major tourist attractions that are frequently visited by the tourists.

Takes around 3-4 hours from Bangalore to Mysore. Roads are good, pleasure to drive, though there are big travellers driving all the way, roads are well-designed and can be driven with speed of around 80-90 km/hr. Have to beware of road humps while driving through small towns on the way.
