    Hi

    2. What is the travel time from Agra to Varanasi.
    3. Can I book tickets online and what documents I need to book train tickets online.
    4. How clean and hyginic Indian trains are

    1. No its would not be a wise idea to travel in Non AC coach during September (IMO: Its not a good idea at all).


    2. What is the travel time from Agra to Varanasi.
    2. Total distance between Agra to Varanasi is 650 kms (404 miles) and it takes around 12-14 hours in Train.


    3. Can I book tickets online and what documents I need to book train tickets online.
    3. Yes you can book train tickets online from IRCTC website, you need your ID Card issued by govt. or passport only.


    4. How clean and hygienic Indian trains are
    4. AC coaches are clean, hygienic and well maintained but Non AC coaches are not at all hygienic and humid weather can make it more exciting.


    5. What is the quality of food served in Indian Railways.
    5. Quality of food served by IRCTC is good but can not promise anything about the vendors on stations, so its better to avoid eating from any outside vendor. Every train got a pantry in middle of the train from where you can get food, snacks and non alcoholic drinks (between 5AM to 11:59PM).


    Thanks
