The Bangalore City is a traffic city and Chennai to Electronic City from Bangalore, I loved the drive. But after Electronic City it's completely a traffic zone. So, overall somewhat I enjoyed the driving. I started at 4.30 am from Chennai and while going I had good coffee in Velore Bridge. My breakfast with the Good Hotel A2B near by Hosur was good.
I booked the ticket as I just want to be at destination at the right time as KPN brand is known for it. But I was pissed off, my departure was schedule at 7.45 am but I started from Koyambedu at 9 am. Guess KPN Travels has gone worst, even in travel the bus stopped at 3 places for some belt problem, I had never seen an Air Condition Bus engine stopped more than thrice, really disappointed.
The train started in the morning and it was an awesome experience. Whenever I travel from Chennai to Bangalore the experience was good. Moving from a hot and humid place to cooler place like Bangalore is always awesome. However, I travel in Brindavan Express quiet often, it doesn't disappoint me in travelling time. The arrival and departure timings at every station was dead right.
It was a night travel by car and I slept due to continuous travelling.
Tips for travelling.
Older children might be capable of dealing with 10+ hours in the family van but If your family car is better suited to in-town trips rather than long hauls. Before you hit the road, be honest with yourself about what you and your children can handle in the way of a road trip. Generally speaking, young children should not be subjected to confinement in a car for more than six hours a day.
