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.
Travelled to Visakhapatnam on personal trip from Hyderabad in my Ford Eco-sport. Road from Hyderabad to Vijayawada is excellent and can be done in 3:15 to 3:30 hrs. Roads are not as good. Lots of heavy truck traffic. Plan for food before Vijayawada as I struggled to find even tea till I reached Rajhumandry.
One of the best trains to Visakhapatnam from Hyderabad. The timings of this train are very appropriate giving me enough time in both Hyderabad and Vizag. This trains is popular for its punctuality. Though, it is difficult to get reserved ticket in short time, its worth paying extra by booking through Tatkaal.
My bus is new one, in which audio system was very good. Bus operator played some movie, which I have not seen. Coming to the speed of the bus first 2. 5 hours bus went in over speed, felt very happy but small fear in mind, if any one came across suddenly, driver doesn't have chance to avoid, defiantly he will hit that one, after that bus was in a good speed. But bus was stopped at a hotel, that is some what rich, I dint have more money on my pocket, I asked to the supervisor that debit card swiping is available, he said no, I want to taste the biryani due to lack of money in the pocket I was not able to.
Excellent road facility from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam and this is very economical for a 4 member family by a car than 3 AC train and flight. I always love driving and road journey right from the childhood. There are number of places to visit in between Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam like temples, resorts, boating etc.
Comfortable, the train was over crowded due vacations and marriages crowed. Services, neatness of toilets were good. We have travelled by A/c chair car. The A/c was comfortable. Catering was satisfactory. Never felt any inconvenience. As for as Visakhapatnam city it is a beautiful place. The food in the hotel was homely.
