Replete with tropical climate, breathtaking backwaters of Netravati and Gurupura rivers, seafood dishes, British and Portuguese charm, enjoying your leisure time at any Mangalore location is quite a treat.
Mangalore is well-connected by road, rail, and air with the rest of India. And, with our how to reach Mangalore guide you may easily enjoy your excursion to this beautiful port city while savouring its unique charm for a fascinating experience.
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.

Syed's 3 days trip to MangaloreHotels are just average. There is no good breakfast facilities in both the hotels. Also very limited breakfast at church in hotel 29, Bangalore. i never recommend this hotel to anyone. There is no hotwater facility for bathing at Mysore hotel during evening time while we checked in at 8.30pm. After repeated requests and complaints they had provided hot water for bathing.breakfast in the morning also too late. They provided it after 9.30pm. Bannerghatta national park safari trip, wonderla amusement park at Bangalore, night dinner at umpire restaurant near to our hotel, Brindavan garden and mysore palace are memorable moments in that trip.
