Varanasi is famous for its thug also, on my personal experience, vendors are very clever, 1st they told you correct price and when you give them money they refused for eg mene vaha juice pia aur glass rakhne laga to ekdum aur daal diya aur kaha pio pio utna hi pesa lagega, aur jb 20 rs dene laga to khte 40 hue, 2glass k, mene kha ki apne hi to kaha utne ka hi h to khte utne ka hi to h, tbi 40 hue, same aesa fruits bechne waale k saath hua.

Plz bring a small ladder if you need to board AC coaches of Shramjeevi Express 12391. Platform length is that much short. AC coaches are out of platform no.4
Ridiculous. I hope this TIP will help passengers of AC class.

Beware of vendors especially selling fruits . They keep rotten fruits along with good ones and they not allow you to select fruits from their basket .
If you stop them and not buy from them , then they will abuse you very roughly full of slangs .
Please refrain from buying from them .

Had a similar experience. But,being a South Indian, I didn't had the 'privilege' of understanding the 'chaste' Hindi abuses. I used to give this tip whoever is visiting BSB from our parts.

This is condition AC-III Compartment of Dwarka Express. The compartment is full of Bed-bug & cockroach and i am not able sleep whole night and some how i completed my journey.This is my worst travelling experience and in between there is no water in the compartment. This train really cover long distance i.e. from Guwahati to Okha and railway should provide better facilities to avoid convenience to Passengers.This photos was taken on journey from GHY(Guwahati) TO BRC(Vadodara Jn) on 17th November 2014 to 19th November 2014.
