Thiruvananthapuram Wiki Travel
Trivandrum is a small strip of land with plenty of palm trees between the Sahya hills and the sea. The main arterial way is the MG Road or the Mahatma Gandhi Road which lies in the north south direction and connects almost all the important attractions.
Thiruvananthapuram has an international airport with direct flights from the Middle East, Singapore, Maldives and Sri Lanka. It is therefore considered as the doorway to Kerala.
The central railway station is located at Thampanoor in the heart of the city, 8 km from the airport. It is very well connected and serviced by rail to all major cities in India. Thiruvananthapuram is the first major city along the second longest train route in the world, Kanyakumari to Jammu.
The long distance bus station is located next door to the railway station. Buses ply to all major towns and villages in the state as well as with the big cities like Cochin, Bangalore, Kozhikode, Coimbatore and Chennai.
