Day 3

Amazing breakfast to start the day again. We checked out from the hotel and headed towards the main city. We planned not to take cab on the 3rd day as all the places we wanted to go where nearby. We started walking from the hotel and for the directions we had Google offline Map. Kodaikanal seemed much more beautiful when we explored by walking.

Places visited : kurinji andavar temple, chettiar park,bryant park,kodaikanal market,boating in kodaikanal lake,coaker's walk again.

Must try places to eat : Lunch at Astoria veg restaurant, pastry corner( ice cream and butter cake,woodlands hilltop.

Place to stay : kodai sunshine hotel at chettiar road.

The trip was indeed a memorable one. Few things which made it more were the perfect pleasant weather,the taxi drivers for both the days and the hotel staff at kodai sunshine hotel. A weekend well spent. Cheers !!!
