Beautiful journey it is, with lots of eating joints in midway. But lots of toll booths on the way. You can make a stop near Jalandhar at Haveli on main gate road or even at Mc Donalds too. Its a rushy road but roads are wide enough. Make sure you carry good music along, you will love the journey.

Journey was safe and sweet. Punctuality in arrival and departure of the bus and staff behaviour was good. One halt point at Jallandhar Bus Stand/ haveli Jallandhar. It took 4-4:30 hours journey from Chandigarh to Amrtisar. Even roads are excellent with moderate traffic during the peak hours in the route.

There are good roads and beautiful sceneries through out. Punjabi Dhabas are very good place for on road food. Some of them are having toilets much much better than Delhi airport's equivalents. There are many toll plazas spoiling the smooth flow of vehicles. Some of them have very long boring traffic block.

This new train between Amritsar and Chandigarh is a boon. It is a super fast express and with AC coaches as well. It takes approx 5 hours and is always on time. Food is served within. It is the best source for low cost travel. Plus there is not much booking. So you can book tickets 10 -20 days in advance.
