As expected it had to be a long and a tiring journey. But I had to take this holiday as I had planned it a long time back. But due to some booking problems I had to go via car instead of any bus or train. Overall, it was a tiring but nice experience.
Jet is still one of the most preferred Airlines in India. The aircraft are decent. Always on time. The frequent flying membership offers you one of the most benefits any Airlines providing. Over the staff and crew members are cordial. Food is also average.
My Journey from Mumbai to Jaipur was awesome I stepped in train at 3:00 pm and the train started at 3:45 pm. The train was on time. It is the fastest train from Mumbai to Jaipur. I was in Sleeper class so there was no AC. The seats were good and there are many amazing views you can see like the Narmada River. At night it stops at Ratlam station were you can buy Ratlami sev (The most famous of Ratlam).
The toilets were clean and you can buy food from train itself (I recommend not to buy) and no bedding was provided in the train. Overall, the experience was good.
Last year I went to Mumbai for a holiday and I went by train. Jaipur Bandra Superfast was really a nice experience. The trains run on time and I reached my destination exact on time. As the average speed of the train is above 55 km/hr, as per Indian Railway rules, its fare includes a superfast surcharge.
