Have fun and enjoyed a lot. The train were not much crowd as compare to other trains. Train was clean and reached destination on time. In middle it was running late. Food was available in train as it's having pantry. By train we saw the nature in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Overall it was good experience.

We started from our home early morning, as driving is most safe and enjoyable at the morning times. Sun is nourishing and it was a great trip by road. So many refreshing places like Alappuzha Beach and many stunning restaurants on the way. We reached there by evening three which was a perfect timing. We got fresh and set for the sun set view. What a relaxing moment was that I can't explain.

Well I travelled by Bangalore - Kanyakumari Express and it was really good experience. I got the seat reserved at a short notice of five days. Sight view was very good. Train staff were good and well behaved. The best part was train timings, I boarded the train in the morning and by evening I was in Kanyakumari. We got fresh and then went for a walk near shore.

The Journey I had in my car was not so pleasant. The roads are very bad, it is one of the greatest tourist place in the country and I am really sad to see such pathetic roads. I would have opted some other means of travel, if I had a clue that the roads would be worse. I would suggest to take trains, since the conditions of the roads are really bad.
