|How to reach Gaya and Bodhgaya?
One can reach the best by train. We went to Gaya from Varanasi by taxi. The distance is 400
kilometers or thereabouts. One should start early in the morning from Varanasi which has
an airport. Bus transport is not well-developed in Bihar and even the trains are crowded and
reservation of seats almost impossible within 7 days prior to the journey.
