      I would agree - there is no better way to experience or see the 'real' India than on a train journey. It gives you an excellent opportunity to interact with local people from various communities and socio - economic backgrounds and if you are lucky and have friendly co - passengers, maybe you may even get to try some local home cooked food as well 'roadside' food on the longer routes. We love to bond over our food and open our hearts to all those we meet - especially on train journeys. Just a word of caution though for the less travelled - on trains such as Shatabdi and Rajdhani you may prefer to travel premium class for a better experience
