Spicejet is ok but small aircraft with little bit more noise than jet. Prices are pocket friendly. Crew is well trained. We need to buy food. We had jio TV in our mobile to kill time and we were watching live news and serials. It was pleasure. Kochi airport is clean and neat and spic and span. Nice to see whole airport is working with solar power. On the other hand Chennai airport needs lot of improvement.
I have travelled through Train 3 tier AC coach to Kanyakumari, and it was very nice experience with my family. This is reached Nagercoil on time and seats are very clean and AC is also worked in good condition. We can get the snacks and food at train with good quality.
Toilets are clean, charging slots available, seats are neat and in good condition. They offer refreshments. People travelling were nice and well-behaved. Pantry offered good food. Vendors do not disturb much. Beggars also don't enter the compartment because of the RPF. Nice journey to the end point of India. We boarded a train from Berhampur to Chennai. We saw all the tourist places within a day and headed to Kanyakumari and then to Rameshwaram.
Journey was really comfortable. The bus stopped near Chengalpet. It was a non stop journey after the pit stop. The bus reached the destination on time. It took about 12 hours to reach the destination. They covered close to 710 km in about 12 hours. This bus does not offer you a charging point to the travellers. Please make certain that you carry a power bank with you. The drivers might become impatient if you do not board the bus on time. Please ensure that you reach the boarding point 15 minutes in advance to initiate smooth boarding process.
Its a long train route and it takes almost 12 hours to reach the destination. But the city is worth waiting and as every Station there is mob or driver snatching our luggage to their vehicle and later it's our obligation to follow them. Apart from that it's a pleasant journey.
