Hi Jezecek,

Many trains run from Tiruchy to Tanjore within 1 hour journey time, taxi also will not take 5 hours at most 1.5 hour choice is yours

I feel taxi is better as you could avoid moving to Tiruchy junction from Airport and waiting time to catch the train

Hi

Agree with Alen. A cab should be fine. The journey would be not more than 90 minutes.

A taxi would be the best option for travel to Tanjore as the other options would take more time. If opting a bus or train, you need to travel to the Central Bus Stand or the Railway Junction, which would easily take close to an hour from the airport by bus. Then, with a bus, the frequency would not be an issue as there are buses in every five minutes, which would take a little more than an hour to reach Tanjore. Train time totally depends on the availability and this journey would take anywhere between 45 mins to 90 mins depending on the train category. A cab would do this in 90 mins as indicated by Rajan

Thank you wery much for your help and advice.

Could you tell me, how much is, approximately, proper price for taxi from Trichy airport to Tanjavur? (I am reconcile with paying more as being European and also not being any bargain hero, but not without limits:-)

Depending on the vehicle you choose, it should cost you anywhere between Rs.1250 to Rs.2000, as you would have to pay for the empty return also, meaning for around 130 kms.

Taxi from Trichy airport finally cost me 1350 INR for smaller A/C car with friendly and polite driver, who also picked me (because of my wish) to the street restaurant serving very good rasam (I am the lover of this delicious Tamil soup:) durring the travel.

Thank you very much for your help.
