Day 1

Hi there, as you all know Kerala is a beautiful state and it's called God's own Country. In Kerala everything is beautiful. Apart from traveling most people come here for rejuvenation therapy, Ayurvedic therapy etc. There are 4 international airports in Kerala. Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Kozhikode and Kannur are the 4 international airports presently functional in Kerala.

- Best time to visit, June to January. -

        So if you are planning to visit, arrive at Cochin (Kochi) Airport, don't need to book a hotel. There are so many travel agencies both inside and outside of the airport. Go and consult with them, they may charge high, you can bargain and also can compare with other travel agencies. They will arange a hotel for you as per the convenience.
                         One more thing I'd like to tell you. in Kochi, you can enjoy BEEF, there is no restriction on eating beef. Most of the hotels in Kochi, serving beef as the main course. But if you are a pure vegetarian there might be a problem, you will hardly find only one pure vegetarian hotel within 10 km.
                        Other stuff is good.  Kerala's people really good at English and they can also speak Hindi, though their main language is Malayalam.
Let's talk about travel.
Enjoy Kochi sightseeing, like...
• Fort Kochi Beach
