We choose to do the road trip to Puri from Kolkata in 15th August long weekend, 2016.
Car: Chevrolet Beat
Persons: 4
Days: 4
Total Toll(One Way): 550 Rupees

We started our drive from Kolkata at around 11.00 PM of night, and took NH6 upto Kharagpur. On the way we had some snacks at the Shere Punjab Dhaba, Kolaghat.

Just before Kharagpur we took NH16 up to Bhubaneshwar and NH316 from Bhubaneswar to Puri. It is 505 KM one way.

While coming back we started at 8AM and visited Khandagiri and Udaygiri enroute and got back home by 8PM of the night.

Overall the Road conditions were very good no hustles even at the monsoon seasons. Before Bhubaneshwar there were some diversions due to road repair but nothing to really worry about.

It was a nice journey by train. We traveled in ac couch. As I got confirm ticket, so there was no problem in our journey. We reached Puri on time. But the pantry food quality was not proper, anyway I purchased the food from howrah station and from bbs stn so there was no problem at all. And it was not my first journey so I don't have any problem. Anyway our journey was fantastic one.

Train travel was good, our ticket got confirmed after boarding on train. Toilet was apparently clean but could not find any RPF for security. This train reached destination on time.

It started in the night from the new complex of Howrah station and reached Puri next morning. It was half an hour late. Bathroom was clean and water was available. We went in January, and its winter time so not bothered about fans. Its good train to go to Puri, because you reach at morning.

Note : While booking tickets ensure that you don't get a side berth specially side middle berth. I felt that seats were bit narrow compared to other trains.

Train was on time, clean and AC's were functioning. The train does not have a pantry however vendors were playing throughout maintaining proper supply of basic food.

In my deal they were suppose to provide me Station Pick and drop, 3+1 Bedded...more »
