    Gulf Air

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We flew from London Heathrow to Trivandrum via Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. We chose Gulf Air, as they were the most reasonable airline operating that route.

    We were pleasantly surprised with the service, especially when we were upgraded to Business Class!

    In the picture you can see my parents enjoying the additonal comfort of the upgrade!

    For moving around within the city, take an auto. They are everywhere and in Trivandrum, they have meters to show how much you have to pay. Currently, the autos have starting fare of either Rs. 6 or 7. Don't bargain for extra Rs. 1 or 2 tip, the petrol price goes up and the meter rarely changes its starting fare.

    Indian trains

    Moving around in India by train is easy and cheap. Due to the British legacy, they have a fantastic railway net. Trains are not always modern and clean, but for sure is a real indian experience.
    If you are gonna spend a night on the train, reserve a 1st class bed, is not so expensive and is the only way to have some sleep.
    But if you are gonna take a short trip (1 or 2 hours), take once one of the cheapest tickets, and travel in the plain coaches where most indians travel, is an unforgettable experience!!

    When you make reservations on a train, they put your name in a list that is placed by the entrance of your coach. It's advisable to get to the station in advance, and check if your name is in the list of your wagon, Sometimes it sin't, and you can better fix this in the station than once on route!
