Though traveling via bus with family was a tough decision, but the roads were excellent. Hence my family enjoyed the Bus ride. I took less than 4 Hrs to reach the holy place of Varanasi. Varanasi is a place were you will find a peace of your mind.

Bus journey to nearby locations are very good now-a-day as you don't have to wait for the trains to travel and even if you are traveling with your family.

The NH-2 on which I travelled to Varanasi from Kanpur is very wide four lane highway Road. You can drive 100 to 150 Km/hr very easily as my Ford fiesta petrol car gives me full performance on this highway instead of city dense traffic. After 4.5 hrs journey I reached at Varanasi & taken a auto for travelling in varanasi because driving in varanasi is very painful due to narrow gallys and hazard traffic.

The Auto driver is well known about the way and the opening and closing time of temple.

The City I think is a mixture of modern & ancient culture. The City populated unplanned holds international importance in education, handcraft, jyotish & after death sanskar. People wish to die in Kashi to achieve swarg. None of other city holds importance like this the city related to Mahatma...more »

The train becomes late in winter due to fog but in summer itís always on time, sometime it gets late for 2 hrs arriving at the station.

Why should travellers visit Varanasi? The place Varanasi is itself is an unique destination for spiritual lovers. There are plenty of beautiful temples that we cannot find another place. The facility in the train is good and services are on time. There will be much improvement in future for various other trains to visit Varanasi but this is the favourable one for me.

Last month my mother travelled alone in India with my three years old son from Varanasi to Kanpur and I booked Kashi Cab from Varanasi and it costs around 1200 Rs from Varanasi to Kanpur. But my mother was very impressed with the service and was very happy with the driver named Ravi. The driver helped her and thus she was relaxed and even helped her out when ever required. I would like to recommend Kashi Cab for all the women travelling alone in India.
