It was comfortable and very interesting travel. The landscapes enroute was good and eye catching. One must carry with him plenty of water and a good route map and music CDs of one's choice. Small pillow will be very helpful. The driver should be able to converse in Hindi and English both. Light snack should be carried.

I got an opportunity to do so by winning a bloggers competition organised by India Bloggers and planned a visit to South India in the month of Oct 2014.

First I visited Madurai and then Rameshwaram and finally travelled to Kanyakumari by Innova vehicle being a middle aged person I never felt tired while travelling and it's the best vehicle to drive with. Local transport is advisable since roads are also very good with restaurants, dhabas at every 10 km. One should carry water bottles for avoiding outside waters.

The road connecting from Rameshwaram is not very good, so we were recommended to go near Madhurai, from there the road to Kanyakumanri was very good, the view was very good, the best time to start is after having breakfast, the windmills were a site to see, lot of green, refreshment stall were good.

I would recommend to travel by any other private A/c buses rather than travelling in a Government bus. It was a very terrible experience. The bus condition was not good. Also the bus left Rameswaram at around 7:30 Pm in the evening and we reached Kanyakumari at 3:30 Am in the morning which was a tiring journey. Also there were insects in the bus which bit me and led to Allergy.

I started from Rameshwaram by bus at 7.30. The bus was from Tamil Nadu State Road Transport Corporation (TNSTC) and I booked the ticket from busindia. On the way at 11 pm bus stopped for dinner. Bus seat quality is good but not the best. Anyone can travel by bus. But if you want to sleep in the bus then you need to choose any other bus.
