I am a regular visitor to Goa and as we plan to book independently I'm thinking about using Kerala as a base next year as flights to Kerala from newcastle are so much cheaper than to Goa. I'm hoping for advice on a number of points (thanks)
1. If we land at Kochi airport , what would be a good resort ,within distance of the airport, with a beach available to chill out for a couple of days before moving on?
2. If we want to travel from Kochi to Margao in Goa how long will it take by train, how much do tickets cost (not necessarily first class) and how easy is it to get tickets whilst in Kerala (maybe within 72 hours of travel?)
3. We are thinking about going in the last week of November. What is the weather normally like? I know it will probably be warm/hot but is it generally sunny?
4. I understand that there may be alcohol restrictions. How easy will it be for my partner to get a glass of wine with her evening meal?
Thanks in advance
