Kanpur is a city in Uttar Pradesh.
Kanpur a major industrial and commercial city located on the banks of the River Ganges. It has an area of over 1,200 km sq. (5th largest city in India) and had a population of around 6.1 million in the 2008 census. Kanpur is home to several educational institutions, including an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-Kanpur), CSJM University, Harcourt Butler Technological Institute (HBTI), University Institute of Engineering and Technology, GSVM Medical College and Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Technology (AITH).
Being located on the national corridor of railways the city of Kanpur is well connected with the rest of India by rail services, eg. Shadabti express from Delhi to Kanpur.
It also lies on the Kolkata-New Delhi rail link and hence is connected with Rajdhani expresses (many of them, Howrah rajdhani, Guwahati rajdhani, Bhubaneswar rajdhani).
Main Railway Stations in the City
Even though Kanpur has an airport, there are only six flights per week to Delhi and three per week to Kolkata operated by Air India. If flying from any other city, you can take an Air India (formerly Indian Airlines) flight to Delhi (get your luggage checked through to avoid confusion - Air India offers the service), and then take an Air India flight from Delhi to Kanpur.
Many travelers to/from Kanpur also use the airport at the neighboring city of Lucknow. Lucknow Airport is well-connected to many cities in India and the Middle East. It is about 70 Kilometers from Kanpur. From Lucknow airport one can take a taxi, bus (AC or non-AC) or train to come to Kanpur. Please note that Buses are available from Alambag Bus Stop, Lucknow’ which is 6 km away from the Airport and Trains are available from Charbagh, Lucknow which is 10 Km away from the Airport. However taxis can be taken from airport itself.
The flights to Kanpur and Lucknow are generally reliable and timely, but may get delayed or diverted during winter (Dec-Jan) when the region often experiences dense fog. Trains too get affected. Plan your travel accordingly and allow for possible delays.
Kanpur is well connected with Road, NH 2 and NH 25 passes nearby. The NHs which passes to Kanpur are NH 2,NH 25,NH 86 and NH 91. Kanpur has two major bus station. The very important bus station of Kanpur is Jhkarkati bus Station. Many Volvo buses especially Royal Cruiser which go to Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
There are city buses running by UPSRTC under JNNURM.These buses offer cheaper rates than Auto Rickshawas.AC Low floor city bus has the highest cost which is also very comfortable.Some other types of buses are Non AC Low Floor,Mini Bus and Low Floor which also offer Low Rates.For more information see the page Kanpur Metropolitan Bus Service in Wikipedia.
You can travel using auto rickshaw or the tempo called Vikram. Vikram is the cheapest mode of transport but a pain to travel. However, Vikram drivers have a fixed rate for point-to-point travels and its an experience in itself when 10 people (+driver) travel in one Vikram. The quality of auto rickshaws in Kanpur is also pathetic and there is not fixed rate or meter system. You have to bargain with the driver.
Cycle rickshaws there is no standard or norm for the price.They can be found on Main Road and Small Roads of city.
Private taxis like Ambassdor,Vans and other cars are available from Canal Road Taxi Stand and from various hotels and travel agencies.

No meal in Kanpur can be completed without eating pan, hence, if you are near cantt, the mall road, near phool bagh gives you excellent paan options, or may just drive till birhana road and grab a pan there. Around the other side however, the lane near halet, is a haven of pan vendors. With alternating medicine and CT scan clinics, the pans here are the best in the city. The pan shops are open comfortably till 2AM. Perfect reason to go out on a drive.
eat A small standing-only place near the Parade Chauraha, the aroma of mouthwatering Chicken Biryani will wipe out all thoughts of chicken flu from your mind. After you dig into the food, you may even end up walking away with a parcel for the evening. I say a parcel for dinner because this place shuts at 3 pm. So drop in between 11.30 am and 3 pm. And, it is closed on Tuesdays.An apology to vegetarians. This place does not cater to them.
There are pubs at Landmark Hotel and at the new malls.
Mufarra is a red drink which you can drink in summer for getting relief of Hot.This is easily available on shops.
There are a number of hotels on Mall Road and G.T Road.
