I have travel multiple times from Delhi to Chandigarh by train and I always select only one train which is Shatabdi. Shatabdi express are considered as one of the premier and fastest trains on Indian Railway. It have only 2 type of coaches and its fully air conditioned train. CC (Chair Car) are having seats with 2/3 configuration and OK for 5-6 hour journey. The facilities like snack/Dinner as per timing.

Driving to Chandigarh is fun from Delhi. Umpteen number of restaurants for halt and new highways to connect easily. We all met at Mukabra chowk and continued in an SUV which had an ice bucket too. Kept on eating aloo Puri, nachos, choco chip cookies on the way ... Three of us with four kids. We took one break each time while going and coming back.

The location of the hotel is the nicest thing, rest all was average. Food was okay. Room was fine. Bathroom had unfixed shower and took three people to clear the problem. Front office people had no hospitality industry etiquette. Would only go for location on the beginning from where the Hills...more »

Kalka Shatabdi departs from New Delhi at sharp 7:40 am and reaches Chandigarh at 11:05am. The entire journey is all of 3. 25 hrs and is the smoothest that you can ever experience. This is the train to pick every time you visit Chandigarh because it is the fastest train there is - CHG Shatadbi(evening) comes quite close and takes 3:30 hrs. However, if you want to make use of your full day be it personal or official, Kalka Shatabdi is the one you want.
I travelled in the CC coach - it was an official journey as I had to meet a client but I extended my trip and stayed back over the weekend to explore the place.
Be warned - the AC is very cold and if you do not take a jacket or blazer or shawl, you will experience 3. 25 hrs of winter chill you did not expect. Seats were in very good condition - you should definitely opt for the window seat. I love travelling by trains and looking out of the window and watch nature pass by fleetingly. Houses, people, trees, animals, cars on the road - each telling a different story.
You will be provided a newspaper - ET, TOI whatever you prefer. Breakfast - veg, non veg, south indian. Tea or coffee - twice :) if I remember correctly - juice too.
Charger is there just beside your seat so you do not have to worry if your battery needs recharging in the middle of the journey.
Best possible way to visit Chandigarh in the minimum amount of time with the maximum amount of comfort.

Boarding time was 7:15 AM
Total fare for two was Rs 1038
From ISBT Kashmiri Gate
You should pick an AC Bus and should carry some fast food, chips and cold drinks.
There is one stop in between which is marvelous.
Good Food, a nice place to take selfies.

Flight was perfect. Staff is also very helping and its my first ride in plane and I didn't feel at all. While the travel pilot is also good and I don't feel any breaks and any other heart stop moment in flight as well. Rest the trip is fine and enjoyed my first trip very much.
