Amazing journey by flight from Hyderabad to Chennai. Thankful to the airlines for safe journey. In the flight space is somewhat less at legs and partner side, air hostess did a good job in flight. It's really good journey with the airlines in first time and airlines timing is somewhat good.

Spicejet never on time, terrible flight, and they never care to inform the passengers the reason for delay, Bombardier aircrafts are such a worst flights only spicejet maintains, this is not the first time the spice jet delays the flight just by canceling the previous flight and filling them all in one flight.

It was not a different travel with Indian railway as always it is the same one. Train reached chennai little late by 30 minutes. The food was ok as we had it after checked from fellow travellers. Indian railway need to work lot to improve the services and need to focus to improve the services and food qualities also.

Life is similar to a bus ride. So I chose the bus, for my next destination, which was Chennai. The journey begins when we board the bus. The Bus was Volvo and Sleepers were much comfortable. It left 06:30PM. We meet people along our way of which some are strangers, some friends and some strangers yet to be friends.

There are stops at intervals and people board in. Via Chinnaganjam and Nellore early morning we were in Chennai. Highway No. 45 was in excellent condition, and between at the stoppages all facilities, such as washroom neat and clean, restaurant and Paan and Cigarette shop, were available, after wash room we had coffee. Journey was really comfortable, as we did not feel tiresome. Traveler must go for advance booking and pick up points, so just reach little early, to have a hassle free journey. Services offered by the operator were nice as clean births, and mineral water.

The roads are smooth and perfect for long journey. I went in my own Indica Car. The road consist many restaurants in each and every length. But the toll gates are irritating. The weather is very sultry and sweating. Please maintain towels. The road consist of many temples.
