My Travel Resolution.
discover hidden myths, taste diverse food and sleep below a sky full of shooting stars and galaxies every night
If you want to travel in India, you should travel by trains. This is not solely my suggestion but many Indians will vouch for it. Whether you have got a vacation planned or traveling back to your roots, travelling by train will give you the best time possible. Besides the worry of what to pack, what to eat, a train journey is an exciting experience every time.

I travel frequently in trains, thanks to cheaper rates and comfortable journey. In long journey, it’s quite difficult to pass time without doing anything. During long journey hours, sleep is the most common way to pass time. I think we should use other ways for time pass other than sleep during our train journey. The journey time should be used in more productive or better way.

Tips for Travelling by Train in India

To have a great train travel, follow these simple train travel tips and you will have something to cherish forever. Let's have a look at the list of best ways to pass time while travelling in train in India.

1. Let Your Eyes Explore the Natural Beauty

India has magnanimous stretches of picturesque landscapes that will just take your breath away. All you’ve got to do it look out the train window and admire the lush green fields, the sun kissed skies, the gently winding river streams and the rustling sound of tree leaves as you pass by.

2. Lose Yourself in a Good Book

Reading is one of the most popular time pass things during your train journey in India. A lot of people always wanted to read popular books during their train journey. So, it is the right time to read your favourite books. You can also pass time by reading newspapers, magazines, and e-books from various online book stores.

You can vile away your time perfectly by reading an interesting book when you travel. Reading may leave a constant smile on your face. It can even push your imagination to a new level.

3. Take Pictures or Watch Movies about India

With mobile technology, we can do so much. Though train travel doesn't guarantee internet access all the time, you can definitely take some selfies or pictures, use an app to enhance the beauty and make yourself feel good. You can also watch documentary movies about India or a sweet rom-com or an adventurous flick to pass your time.

4. Learn More about Your Destination

In case, you are heading off to a new place, knowing more about it will give you more destination goals. Go through the local map, take note of the hidden tourist spots, read about the culture, etc.

5. Strike a Conversation with a Co-Traveller

During your train journey, do not forget to make more friends than ever in short period of time. It is one of the best ways to create more memories with you. You may gain additional knowledge, more business idea, more creative things, and much more from your co-passengers (if they are really worthy to make them as friends!). It is considered as one of the best ways to expand your friends network.

When young, you may remember your parents telling you to avoid strangers. But talking to a fellow passenger may just be a start to a new friendship or at least a good story time. There’s no denying that it can turn to be a life-changing experience but one should still be careful of belongings and the company even after the most incredible conversation.

6. Get Creative

Is there a hobby you don’t get time to pursue in everyday life? Given the long hours of train travel, you can surely explore and enhance your talents. Write a song, sketch or maybe even meditate for some time. These don’t a need a heavy investment and thus are a perfect way to spend the time.

7. Give Yourself Some Care

Train journey gives you enough time for activities that can help you relax more. You can just get up and do some light stretches, use a body-loving beauty product or maybe just listen to some tension-relieving music. You can also become more active by walking across the train coaches or catch on some lost sleep.

8. Enjoy a Variety of Snacks

It is important to take good food and treat yourself from time to time during a train journey. It is almost like you have a bag full of surprises to spruce up your mood. It can be chocolates that are instant mood lifters, hot tea with biscuits or maybe something freshly cooked that you can access at any train station.

9. Write Your Journey Experience or Train Story

An experience can teach you many things. You should write an article to show your feelings of train journey. In long train journey, you may experience many things. It’s a good thing that, you write your experiences and feelings.

In India, you may able to see beautiful mountains, amazing rural life, city skyscrapers, lakes, and many other things. It is one of the best ways to represent your journey story to so many people through blog by writing a guest post on someone's website or blog. Do not forget to capture beautiful photographs from the window of your train.

10. Listen to Songs and Music

Listening to songs and music is one of the best ways to enjoy your train journey in India. You should listen peaceful and classical songs in your train journey to enjoy more positive energy. It is one of the best things I do during my train journey in India. I always felt positive energy by listening peaceful music. Try to avoid pop, jazz and loudly music. These types of music may ruin your peace in the journey. A train journey is one of the best ways to connect with nature and yourself!

11. Play Games with Friends or Family Members

In India, many people play various games during their train journey. If you are travelling alone in train, then you can play game with your co-passengers in the coach. If you are travelling with your friends or family members, then you can ask them to play with you. It is one of the best ways to have long-lasting memories with you.

You can play various indoor games, such as Chess, Ludo, Cards, Snake Ladder, and many others. Do not forget to carry important game items with you!

Train journeys surely pump your spirits and give you valuable life experiences. To ensure a smooth travel experience, make sure you book your train tickets in advance, have the railway complaint number and follow our tips for train travel.
