It's four track road up to Villuppuram only the last 40 km is double way road. Well-maintained road. Tolls charges may come around Rs 240, for comfort journey worth to pay. Since Indian drivers has lack of knowledge to use this 4 track road, more attention keep you safe.

Lengthy travel time, unknowingly booked the bus which travels through the State Highway among the en route towns (Travellers from down south to Pondichery beware of the route of bus). Though I didn't feel the impact due to night time travel and comfortable sleeper beds.

Travelling time is more comfortable and reasonable, but the seats is not comfortable for long travel. But that's normal for SETC buses, next time I should try the private travels only. So many de-merits on SETC but I should be only comfortable for budget.

My wife, son and I traveled by Vaigai Super Fast Express, which started from Madurai at 7 am. The train journey is good. We ate food in the train, bought many books, ate ice creams. My son always likes train journey and my wife too. We traveled by AC chair car and it is good.

Was a bit tiring but worth the drive as its easy to commute. Site seeing can be done as per your wish, you can dine at your favorite diner. Can enjoy the late night life which Pondicherry is famous for. Can also visit adjacent towns and temples which are not that far.
