by msbinsaid

Hi, I plan to take a bus (deluxe coach) from Bangalore to Chennai. Could you please advise how long it will take bewteen these 2 cities. By train it seems 6 hours. Is it faster by bus? Thank you.

The bus times are listed on this website: it seems to be about 6-7 hours

Train probably is better option, andmore reliable.

The train is any day better ( and safer as mentioned in the previous tip) than doing this route by road, which I have experienced. There are 2 express trains doing this route. The Brindavan express and the Shatabdi express, which take 5 hours in either of the trains.

Wishing you happy travels
Mahesh

Travel Tips for Bangalore

Visit a Silk (Reshme) Farm

by bradbeaman

Karnataka is the premier mulberry silk producing state in India, producing about 70% of India's silk.

Once you go into the rural areas outside of Bangalore you can see the silk production industry.

The process goes like this: the farmer buys the silk worm eggs from the government that come by the hundreds on one piece of paper. The farmer grows mulberry plants and feeds the worms in the basket. Once the worms reach a certain size they are placed in stands where they spin the cocoons. Then it is full circle back to the market.

If you can go to a place like Dodbalapur where they weave silk into sarees that is very interesting process too.

The Kannada word for silk is Reshme

Within twelve hours of arrival in Bangalore..

I was knocking at the doors of the Premier Book Store in church street in downtown Bangalore. As usual the owner was more than helpful. I had just been to the Paris Book Fair five days before so I had a list of books to buy..
and this is what i bought on my first day in India..at my favourite bookstore in India.. with the erudite Mr Shanbaugh in attendance.
