So, Amritsar seems to be one lucrative tourism-destination to you? What remains to be resolved after you have decided to pack your bags and come knocking at the gates of this city are your travel plans. There are plenty of alternatives to choose from when it comes to means of travelling to Amritsar. Here are the listings-

  • By Air

    The Shree Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport connects Indian cities such as Srinagar, Delhi, Chandigarh and Jammu as well as International cities to the city of Amritsar on a daily basis. The airport is about 11 km away from the centre of the city and you can drive down to the city within a span of 20 to 25 minutes. A taxi will cost you about INR 100.

  • By Rail

    The Amritsar Railway Station is connected to most of the important cities in India. The idea of a rail-journey sounds fascinating as the pleasant sights of the fields in this agriculture-dominated city around will greet the nature-lover in you. Moreover, it is a fast yet cheaper mode of reaching Amritsar.
    Since it is very difficult to get on the spot-bookings from the station, owing to the heavy influx of visitors throughout the year, it is advisable that you book your departure as well as return tickets in advance.
    Do be careful of your luggage while in the train as there may be some mischief-mongers about.

  • By Road

    Amritsar is located on the National Highway 1 (NH 1) or the GT Road, and daily buses ply between Amritsar and several other cities such as Chandigarh, Ambala, Patiala, Delhi and Jammu, and reachable from most of the Indian cities within a day.
    Both luxury buses and State-run buses are available both within as well as outside the city. Fares are reasonable, depending on the distance you need to cover.

Once travelling hassles are done away with, all you need to plan for are the smart activities and fun-filled games that you are going to indulge in while travelling. Remember, this is your vacation. Make it count amongst the most memorable times of your life.
