To wake up breathing the clean air fragrant with unfamiliar shrubs is a surreal experience for a Mumbaikar. Before you start making any assumptions, let me tell you that I had woken up in a creaky sleeper class railway compartment in the middle of nowhere instead of a historical suite at some heritage hotel!
Why this story?
It is because I am going to share my experience of travelling to Udaipur on a low-cost budget.
The trip to Udaipur had materialised at the last minute and I found myself on a train bound for Udaipur in the next four days. I had booked a tatkal railway ticket through a ticketing agent (to get a confirmed berth) and it had cost me INR 800 for a two-way ticket in the12995 Mumbai-Bandra-Udaipur Superfast Express!
If you wish to book cheaper tickets you can try to book a tatkal ticket yourself through IRCTC’s official website. The 12995 has got convenient departure and arrival timings. I alighted at Udaipur Railway Station around 9:30 am.
