"The trains have women only..." India Transportation Tip by Miffy

India Transportation: 349 reviews and 391 photos


The trains have women only carriages - I'd advise women travelling alone to use them after I had an overnight trip in a normal carriage and a man pulled a knife on me. Fortunately the train was just stopping and I swung into the ladies' carriage. This is the next morning when the husbands came to see their wives were all present and correct!
trains often have to be booked in advance, by the way - if you don't want to end up sleeping in the cockroach-infested aisles (cockroaches need to get to places too...) and bear in mind that india is such a massive country, the time of arrival you've been given may well refer to the day after you set out.
