Sholapur Travel Guide - Transport
Sholapur is a transport hub for Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, three major districts. The city is therefore very well connected to other large cities in India. If you’re planning to travel by train, there are frequent and regular services that connect Sholapur to Bombay and Hyderabad. In fact, most trains heading towards the Southern regions of the country stop at Sholapur. Trains are the most popular means of transport in India, and no visit to this country would be complete without getting to know India’s rail transport. If you want to get a taste of the local culture at cheap prices, this Sholapur Travel Guide recommends that you travel by rail. Buses are other fairly good options, although perhaps somewhat less comfortable than trains. If you want to travel by plane, you can only get to Sholapur from Bombay, currently the only available connection. Once you’ve arrived in the city, the best way to get around is by bus, if you have to go longer distances. If you are simply doing some sightseeing, it is recommended that you walk, as local public transport can be quite crowded, especially at rush hours.
Sholapur Travel Guide - Accommodation
India is quite a popular destination with backpackers, mainly due to its low prices. There are many affordable hostels, and even surprisingly cheap hotels with rather good living conditions. However, keep in mind that some hotels don’t quite live up to quality standards despite their good rating. Hotel Pratham is only a few minutes from the railway station, and offers modern facilities and comfortable rooms. Srikamal International hotel offers friendly atmosphere and clean rooms. It is located quite close to the shopping district, and railway station. Hotel Poonam Lodge, located close to the Central City Gardens, has en-suite rooms and relatively good conditions and a good restaurant.
