We boarded this train from Chennai, Tambaram Station. It is totally 12 hours journey to reach Trivandram Junction via Nagerkoil. During this travel we had friendship with one family. Beaches at Kovalam are clean and blue water is there. It was a very nice panoramic view at the beach. But there is problem for vegetarian. If your are non-vegetarian then you enjoy sea food.

The road was smooth to travel and there is no traffic problem at all. Speed breakers and other instructions are provided correctly. Overall it was really good. I visited Poovar Beach. It was lovely there as there were many foreigners.
