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.

It takes 7 hours in Bus from Madurai to Kanyakumari. 10 and half hours in Bus from Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram. 6-7 hours in Bus/Car from Rameshwaram to Kodaikanal. You have only ordinary Tamil Nadu Govt Buses plying from Madurai to Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram. It's ok to try the bus - only if you are a travel freak, enjoy the green all around you and enjoy the adventurous travel. Otherwise, it's hectic.

Travelling by car is a good experience. All the way is four road. Driving your vehicle is the best with good view of the wind mills on the way near Nagercoil. Also it helps you to reach the destination faster. Train takes six hours and bus takes 7 hours. Taking a break at Tirunelveli helps.

We booked a 10 seater traveller and were travelling all around Tamil Nadu. Places like Rameshwaram, Kanyakumari, Pondicherry, Madurai etc were all travelled in the same bus. The driver was hospitable and gave a good guidance at all the places where we moved.
