"To start with, the trains are always running late during winters but I had planned enough time of 3days-n-2nights.
As a solo-backpacker I always prefer peace in my bucket listed places & Varanasi Ghats is one such place. Spending your most of the evening time in Walking along the Ghats, Boat Rides, and Evening Aarti" is what awaken your soul.
Exploring narrow alley's and visiting some famous temples (Kashi Vishwanatha temple) adds on the purpose.
And most importantly try out all the Sweets, lassies & Chats of Varanasi.
Preferably book your stay near to Dhasaswamedh ghat.
If time permits have a visit to Sarnath (10kms from Varanasi). "

When I reach the boarding airport "Indra Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi", I saw a long queue for getting a boarding pass as well at security check in. So, I advice everyone to reach the New Delhi Airport some 1. 5-2 hours before the flight departure time due to congestion and long queues. It have a well developed cafes and shops inside as well as outside. I passed my time easily there and cleanliness is the major point of attraction. The staff behaved nicely and guided me in a right way. In flight services were good and I was offered water/cold drinks and eatables like sandwitches, etc. The attendees were polite and behaved well throughout the journey. Taxis and AC cabs are easily available at the destined airport Lalo Bahadur Shastri Airport, Varanasi".
In short my first time journey via flight was quite pleasant.

The timings of the flights (both to and fro) are best suited for our requirement. You can have breakfast and then reach airport, catch the flight and reach Varanasi/Delhi by check-in time at the hotel at your destination. In most cases, Indigo Airlines flights are known for punctuality, so we opted for Indigo.

If it isn't for punctuality and timings, I would never fly Indigo Airlines. The cabin crew is not very polite and they behave as if they are doing some kind of favour serving the passengers. So I try not to interact with Indigo staff during the flight.

The timings of the train was really suitable starting at night and reaching Varanasi in the morning. The train got bit late due to fog but overall a nice journey. Hawkers provided food and water and people chit chattering does not leave any space for getting tired or bored.
