How to Reach Mangalore
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Just 18 kms away from the heart of the city, the nearest airport to Mangalore is located at Kenjar Bajpe. It takes just 25 minutes to ride from the main city to the airport. Mangalore International Airport India is also the second international airport of the Karnataka state. With numerous financial hubs like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Goa, and Delhi being connected via domestic airlines, while foreign cities like Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Dammam, Doha, and Bahrain connected through the international segment on weekly and bi-weekly basis, make this place quite accessible. Maximum number of flights to Mangalore operate from Bangalore and Mumbai. From Bangalore to Mangalore, there are four to seven flights every day, while from Mumbai there are five to six flights scheduled for a day. However, the frequency of flights to Mangalore from Dubai has been increased to five times a week.
Connected to the Indian Railways network, regular trains run from Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Palghat, and other major South Indian cities via Kerala and Bangalore to Mangalore train stations. However, the Konkan Railways links Mangalore to Mumbai via Goa.
Located at Hampankatta in the heart of the city, Mangalore Central is a terminus, and is used only by the trains which terminate at Mangalore. And thus, most of the long distance trains interconnected with different cities stops here at Mangalore Junction. A few of major trains like Yesvantpur-Karwar Express and KSR Bengaluru City-Kannur Express makes it easier to cover Bangalore to Mangalore distance in a short duration. While to cover a distance from Mumbai to Mangalore, you have to take Mumbai LTT-Mangalore Junction.
Conveniently located about 395 kms to the South of Goa and 347 kms due west of Bangalore with National Highways connecting the city- Mangalore to both the sides. For the long distance, i.e. from Mysore, Goa, Mumbai and Bangalore to Mangalore bus services, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses are highly recommended because of their low fare and comfort. However, there are numerous bus services from Mangalore to all the nearby towns in Karnataka and Kerala run by both the state government transport department (KSRTC) and numerous private companies, which operate at a little competitive rates. Although, the buses are operated by different private companies, the bus numbering scheme is unified, which is quite useful for travellers and bus drivers.

Ramakrishnareddy's 4 days trip to MangaloreWe booked our 4 days -3 nights trip from book it forget it. Cab provided by travel thrill is good one , car is in good condition and driver(Madhusudhan) knows the places very well, he explained about the places history and suggested good places to visit and good places to have lunch and dinner . we had nice experience during the Msyore stay in Rio Merdian. We had worst experience during the coorg stay in Porcupine Castle. Connecting road from main road to the resort is in pathetic condition, they have very limited menu options and very limited activities in the resort . Room facilities are very bad, Geyser was not working properly and water leakage in the washroom.

Dayspring Technologies Private Limited
Dayspring's 3 days trip to MangaloreWe were promised a good hotel when booking but did not get the same. Got a hotel where the staffs did not have basic customer service. The hotel did not have wi-fi, which affected my important work. The only best thing that happened to us in the entire trip was the Cab service. Ajeesh Chetta (our driver) did his best to make our trip enjoyable at least, understanding our frustration. The houseboat guys fleeced us. I booked paying huge money trusting their service as the before-sale service was quite good. Now I regret booking with KY Holidays!
Aniket's 5 days trip to MangaloreThe package was designed in reasonable budget, Hotels was good. Overall good experience. The package was designed in reasonable budget, Hotels was good. Overall good experience.
Devendra's 5 days trip to MangaloreMy travel agent was Sky tours and travel. You cannot expect all the things from travel agent. Few hotels were good but few hotels service was too bad. Especially "F" hotel in Port Blair was horrible as they didn't worry about our lunch and dinner. I don't recommend any one to consider this hotel. Travel agent doesn't consider to keep you engaged all days. I think I had literally wasted one day of time in Havelock where some spots could have been planned but travel agent doesn't bother about your wishes. I simply recommend people to book their hotels on themselves and discuss directly with all the spots you want to visit. Hotel people will also take care of your pick up and drop from airport to hotel and other way. I really didn't see any other spot in port Blair apart from cellular jail as travel agent had planned two days stay in Port Blair. It was just a half a plan and all other day got wasted. Same thing in Havelock too. They just show you Radhanagar Beach and doesn't bother to show us some other spots like Elephanta beach. Travel agent don't care about all these things.. Guys I simply recommend to plan on your own and discuss directly with hotel people. Playing the scuba diving in Neil's Island and spending some time in Radhanagar Beach.
