Kakinada known as the ‘rice bowl of Andhra Pradesh’ and it is rich is culture with historical significance. Most importantly, this city is linked with Hyderabad via roadways. There a number of bus operators offering services between the two cities. I always wanted to visit Kakinada, one of the weekends; I came up with travel plans from Hyderabad. I booked online bus tickets from https://www.redbus.in/bus-tickets/hyderabad-to-kakinada.aspx and arrived at Kakinada on a Saturday morning. Bus transport being an advantageous and promptly accessible mode of travel, I lean toward buses rather than any other means of transports.
Travelling from Hyderabad to Kakinada by bus was a pleasant experience. The bus transport took around 10 hours to cover the distance of 486kms. I boarded the AC sleeper bus from Hafeezpet at 8:30pm and reached Jntu in Kakinada at 8:30am the next day. The bus came with comfortable sleeping arrangements; they provided pillows and blankets too. The bus gave rest stops and ensured complete comfort of its passengers. The bus passed through many broad highways, varied territories and amazing stretches of plantations.
After travelling for long in the bus especially for an entire night, I empowered myself with some refreshing hot coffee at one of the rest stops. Although, the staff in the bus were extremely friendly and constantly assisted passengers in a polite manner. While travelling by bus just remember to carry your headphones and a few quick snacks to munch on, these will surely take away your boring times. As it was during the night that I was travelling so most of the outside scenes were dark, still I had a nice bus journey experience!
I had plans to visit the stunning landscapes, view soothing river and significantly see the Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary. Once I reached Kakinada, my friend was waiting at the bus stop and we both walked together while chit chatting!
