5 Days, 3 Cities and 2 friends in God's own country- Kerala

Tripoto
5th Jun 2019

One fine day my friend asked if I want to go Kerala? Then ? We booked our tickets on the same day for God's own country. The trip was planned in very short time, and I think that was beautiful part.We decided to visit Cochin, Allepey and Munnnar.

P.S. its advisable to learn little of Malayalam as not all people know English/Hindi. I got saved by my friend as she can understand and speak Malayalam.

Day 1

Day 2: Cochin to Allepey: we decided to take state transport bus KSRTC bus from Cochin to Allepey that takes around 1:30 hrs.

In Allepey hiring bike is good option as no Ola/Uber option available. There is Bikers Point just near to KSRTC bus stop in Allepey.

Day 2

St. Mary's Forane Church Pulinkunnu

Day 3 : Allepey to Munnar

one can use the KSRTC bus from Allepey/Cochin to munnar that takes 5-6 hrs or can hire a cab. Private cab takes around 3-4 hours. Also when deciding the stay at Munnar try to select the place which is not close to Munnar main city as the site seeing points will be far.

Day 5

Punarjani Traditional Village- Kathakali and Martial art show

Kathakali dance show is a must, they have daily show from 5-7 PM. For Kathakali try to book the first 2-3 rows tickets that will cost you around 400Rs per person and you can see their expression closely.
