Visakhapatnam is located at a distance of 620 km from Hyderabad. Vishakhapatnam, the port city, is well-connected to Hyderabad by road, rail and air.
However, the best way to reach Vishakhapatnam from Hyderabad is by road. The journey from Hyderabad to Vishakhapatnam takes around 9 hours and the main towns en-route are Hyderabad 57 km -> Choutuppal 82 km -> Suryapet 59 km -> Jaggaiahpet 74 km -> Krishna 60 km -> West Godavari 53 km -> Tadepalligudem 22 km -> Tanuku 62 km -> Rajahmundry 97 km -> Tuni 72 km -> Anakapalle 27 km -> Vishakhapatnam. There are several rest stops on the way. Petrol pumps, including Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOC), are available at regular intervals.
I booked a ticket online For Dhanunjaya Travels to travel from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam. The price of the ticket is very low when compared to rest of the bus services. Even there is a pleasant environment inside the bus. They provided the passengers water and some chips packets. Though there was a bit late in the bus arrival, it took me to the destination half an hour before the stipulated time of arrival. The care taker inside the bus is even punctual in his duty.
We drove from Hyderabad to Vijaywada, and then to Rajahmundry and spent the night there. The next day, we went to Annawaram and Simhachalam and spent the night in Vishakapatnam. The next day we went to Araku Valley and spent the night there. Araku to Srisailam and from Srisailam to Puri and den to Bhubaneswar and then back via Kakinada and we travelled 3000 km in all.
I felt very happy and it was an awesome feeling when I reached vizag by train. I remember the day when, I boarded the train. The train arrived Secunderabad at night 9 pm. I have seen 2 small kids in the train they were so cute almost stayed awake the whole night and we enjoyed a lot.
Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam is a complete night journey and the bus we took is a quiet comfortable one. As it is a sleeper we don't need to bother about our sleep and we can enjoy our sleep. The halts for dinner are good and hygienic. If you go with many fellows in the bus it'll be great. Try to go with many of your friends in a separate bus, such that you can enjoy a lot.
