Vishakhapatnam, sometimes referred to as Vizag, is an important port town located along the eastern coast of India. Hailed as the second largest city of Andhra Pradesh, Visakhapatnam has earned the nickname “The Jewel of the East Coast”. A busy port, the city of Vishakhapatnam is also an educational hub and a fast developing industrial city. An ancient city, Visakhapatnam was ruled by illustrious rules like Emperor Ashoka, and other rulers like the Kings of the Vengi, Chalukya, Chola, Ganga, Pallava and Gajapathi dynasties. Later, it came under the Mughal rule as well. The British used the port here to export valuable like Ivory and spices. Often termed as the ‘Goa of the East’, Vishakhapatnam is well connected with every important cities and town nearby. This city of Destiny enjoys good road connectivity with places like Hyderabad, Warangal, Vijayawada, Chennai and Bangalore among others. Several bus services are available to travel between these cities.
I would like to recommend Amaravathi (VOLVO / SCANIA A.C Multi Axle) bus to whoever wanted to travel srikakulam. APSRTC providing water bottle to all passengers and they are selling snacks in bus. Bus is fully equipped with latest technologies (TV, Individual Light, AC controlling, Webcam and charging points).
The bus arrived 30 mins late. I didnt get bus driver name and number from APSRTC until I boarded the bus. I was just going here and there asking every enquiry person to know the status of the bus. None of them were giving proper answers. Finally bus arrived 30 mins late and departed at 2:00 PM instead of 1:30PM. Even after that the crew on that bus delayed further for more tickets. Finally, the bus departed at 2:00PM. Ride was good. Driver drove at decent speed, we reached aklm by 3:30PM. Yes, 1.5hr journey. Cool ! P.S: The water bottles provided by them looked like they filled those bottles with tap water. Caps are not sealed. Please do not depend on this water if you are water sensitive.
We got Headache . No proper maintenance. Seats are not at all comfortable. Journey is Horrible. We dont book tickets any more.
