The journey was good, the main point which I noticed at Madurai and Kanyakumari station was station are very clean.

Train journey on time but toilets were not properly clean. Overall experience by train was good. We see nature's beauty on entire route, Farms of bananas, coconut trees etc.

At Madurai station there was good food court, so you can easily buy what you want.

It was good experience while traveling from Madurai to Kanyakumari. We reached there in a great morning and a wonderful experience in Kanyakumari. The meditation hall at Vivekananda Rock Memorial was very awesome and the Sunrise and Sunset was very memorable. The three sea meeting point also very attractive and memorable.

We took bus from Madurai Bus Stop to Kanyakumari. We dont have any reservation to Kanyakumari. But lucky enough to get a semi sleeper bus operated by Tamilnadu road transport. Bus was okay and it started at 10:30 pm. We reached Kanyakumari by 4 am. I thought I was going to miss the sunrise. But thankful to the driver who reached the destination on time.

We took an AC coach to travel from Madurai to Kanya kumari. This made our journey comfortable and free from tiredness. And something to say about SRM Travels we were so much impressed with the travels. They were punctual enough and the bus was with superior quality and luxurious too. Over all we had a luxurious and sophisticated journey. This is well suite for long travel.

Nice four lane highway roads if you choose NH7. Takek a round trip to cover Thirunelveli (Nellaiappar Temple, Lala Mittai Kadai Halwa) and Tiruchendur (Sea shore temple of Lord Muruga). Roads are not great near Tiruchendur. You can have a good view of the wind mills on the way to Kanyakumari.
