Bangalore to Velankanni - bus or train for family??

Hiya all,

We plan to travel at the year end from B'lore to Velankanni, and was just wondering what would be the better mode of transport in terms of convenience and time taken?

We will be 3 adults and 2 children, 8 and 12.

Thanks in advance for any and all advise on this.

Cheers,

Bangalore...

There are plenty of good buses available from Bangalore (KPN, SRM travels etc), however it is a long journey (12 hours approx). Hence I would recommend booking a train (you must rush to get tickets) if you are sick of travelling so long in buses. Trains have the advantage of streching etc and is much more comfortable.
