Average journey by train. Food served in the train was bad. Train coach 2 A/c was badly maintained. Need to improve the train couches and clean them well. Car travel from Madurai to Kodaikanal was very good the driver was very good.

To reach Kodaikanal from Kolkata there is only one weekly train, Kannyakumari Express and the nearest Railway Station of Kodaikanal is Kodaikanal Road. From Kodaikanal Road station take a cab to reach Kodaikanal. One can also reach by road from Madurai. The Train journey is good but due to long distance it makes boring.

The train was on time and when boarded in second AC and the ticket checker asked for the ticket. After seeing the ticket he told me that our journey was for 28th March 14 and today is 28th Feb. I got shocked. I checked the ticket and found that he was right. But we had already planned our trip accordingly and it was my mistake that instead of 28th Feb, I booked for 28th March. But the TT was kind enough and due to good luck we got seat in third AC till Chennai and there after our journey was fine.

Being it is a hopping flight via Chennai, it was somewhat time consuming journey. However, journey was good. The time of flight was 6.30 am but it started at 6.25 am. They should supply at least one bottle mineral water and tea in the morning flight.
