Coimbatore, the headquarter of Tamil Nadu’s Kovai District, is the third largest city of the Indian state and a well-known industrial hub of the country. The city has a huge number of engineering firms, textile industries and health care centers. Coimbatore is quite popular among Hindu religious people because of its numerous shrines that were built hundreds of years ago. Apart from these, popular attractions include clubs, amusement parks and botanical gardens. The city has been developing rapidly since the last decade and is expected to soon establish itself as one of India’s most important IT hubs. Some popular tourist attractions of Coimbatore are Aazhiyaar Dam, Marudamalai Temple, Black Thunder Theme Park, Kovai Kutralam Falls and Aliyar Dam Reservoir Park.
As expected, a huge and important city like Coimbatore is linked really well with other important regions in and around the city by means of buses. The city has five important bus stations from where one can board inter-city as well as inter-state buses. Also known as the 'Detroit of South India', the metropolitan city has state operated as well as privately operated buses of different kinds, some being AC Sleeper, non AC Seater, Volvo AC and AC Sleeper Seater. These days a wide range of buses can be booked easily and conveniently on the premier online ticket booking website, redBus. The site even gives you the option to cancel your booked ticket if need be.
Coimbatore is a proper modern city with a handful of attractions, but within 500 km from here, there are a number of beautiful holiday destinations. These include hill stations, backwaters, wildlife attractions, heritage destinations and sparkling beaches, all of which can be reached by bus.
