It also flaunts a variety of brands as well as street shops to purchase stuff at affordable prices. Moreover there are a lot of tourist sites in the city. Hence I was very eager to visit Mumbai as soon as I could get free. Finally I got the opportunity and materialized my wish for a Mumbai trip. As I prefer budget travel and hotels I wanted to get value for my money. So I compared a lot of routes and means to travel via Agra to Mumbai on many popular travel websites. Finally I decided to make my bookings on a train from Agra to Mumbai.
Via flight it takes just 2 hours or so to reach Mumbai. I also had the option to take a bus from Agra to Mumbai that would have charged me around 1400 bucks. But the bus route is from Agra to Indore and then to Mumbai. It is a very time consuming journey of around 36 hours and 30 minutes so I didn’t find it convenient to take a bus for my trip.
I also checked out the train routes and schedules for Agra to Mumbai journey. I had the option of boarding a train from Agra Cantt to reach Kalyan junction in about 16 hours and 49 minutes time. The fare for the train would be around 1500 rupees. Hereafter I could again board a train from Kalyan junction to Kurla which is a 51 minutes journey and would charge only a mere rupees 16 as train fare.
I was quite satisfied as I got the best possible route to travel via and it also fits my budget. Moreover the conventional style of travelling by trains always charms me as I enjoy the scenic beauty when I peep out of the train windows. And now since I boarded the train I was just waiting eagerly to reach Mumbai and start my expedition.
