We took the Kanyakumari Express specifically so as to reach very early in the morning at Tirunelveli. Idea was to check in at Janakiram Hotel, have a bath took breakfast and took a taxi to Tiruchendur which is about 60 kilometres away from Tirunelveli. We had booked the tickets in advance, and our experience of the two tier AC was extremely good.

Much appreciable was the AC retiring room facility in Egmore, where you can relax during transit by showing your tickets and paying reasonable charges on hourly basis.

We could buy some excellent pre-packed food stuff at Egmore Station for our dinner in the train. Excellent facility is available in the Egmore station for food supplies.

From Tirunelveli station we took an auto to the Hotel Janakiram, costing us around Rs.40 only. Hotel Janakiram has good rooms, excellent food facility and is centrally located. We make it a habit to stay in this hotel whenever we go to Tirunelveli and Tiruchendur as itís highly recommended.

Itís very nice to travel. There are lots of tourist places, journey is very comfortable and there are no more halts in the travel time. This is the best and safe service provider. Carry your own food and you will reach the place on time.

I have booked three tier AC for myself and family; it was a super fast train and the convenient timings made me book the train in the first place. The seats, and the passages in the coach were clean. I started at night 8 pm and reached Tirunelveli at 8 am next day, though it went through Trichy and Madurai (both temple cities) in late night. It is always better to buy food from the starting station Egmore.
Overall, it is a nice train.

As we were ten of us, we thought of hiring a tempo traveler. The distance is more than 700+ kilometers (one way). The travel was pleasant and driver was very friendly. It took almost ten hours to reach Tirunelveli. We stopped in few places for food and rest.

Our family wanted to go on a trip last year and after so much discussion it was decided that Kutralam, Kanyakumari and the nearby places would be the destination. For all of us visiting these places is a first time experience.

It is almost 700+ kilometers from Chennai and 10 of us...more »

After getting tired of the city traffic, I was almost compelled to start after midnight and reach destination early morning. As per the plan we started around 1.am and reached destination around 9am, with three breaks in between: first for fuel, second at a cafe coffee day (CCD) for an espresso double shot and clean wash rooms, third for my early morning prayers. Thanks to The Almighty it was a safe trip. Please buckle your seat belts and dip your headlights and have them on high beam only when necessary.
