Hi

since there are 3 international airports and are plenty of sightseeing options accross kerala its always better to book arrival in 1 airport and departure from other airport.even you are using train trip,there is no point of coming back to arrival point say cochin,to depart to your home place.

let me give you a 9 day trip

Day 1 - arrival at cochin,cochin ss,overnight stay

Day 2,3 - Munnar ss,overnight stay

Day 4-to thekkady,ss,stay

Day 5-to kumarakom,stay at a back water resort

Day 6-to alapuzha,stay at a premium house boat

Day 7-to varkala,ss,stay

Day 8-to kovalam,ss,stay

Day 9,to trivandrum,ss,departure

Some tips for you

you may increase 1 more day in kumarakom back water resort which will be a unique experiance.

Ask your houseboat providerto provide candle light dinner,honey moon cake,flower bed etc for your honey moon

A canoe ride in narrow channel will also be intresting and ask your houseboat provider to include it also with your trip

In thekkady do elephant ride,shower,bath,feeding etc at elephant junction

A cab shall be arranged for your whole trip which will save you some money and gives you enough time for sight seeing and relaxation

Enjoy your trip in kerala

Ideal starting point for most Kerala is Kochi and you can depart back from Kochi or Trivandrum.

For 9 nights , you can opt for Cochin -Munnar - Munnar - Thekkady - Thekkady- Houseboat- Kovalam - Kovalam - Kanyakumari .

September will be good for travel.eventhough you can expect some showers it will not be continous and you will get enough time for sight seeing.another advantage is you will get off peak rates for accomodations and houseboat which will be aplicable upto september last.postponding to mid september is also a good idea where you may expect little more less rain than in september first week.

Hi Subho,

For beach experience, you can include Cherai beach near Cochin or Marari beach near Alleppey. Varkala has the specialty that cliff and beach co-exists.

Cheers,

Arun

Hi,

10 day trip is good enough to enjoy kerala to the fullest with the authentic kerala delicacies.

There are three airports in kerala - Kozhikode airport, cochin airport and Trivandrum airport. You can either start from kozhikode and board at Trivandrum or Vice-versa.

The attraction of kerala are: Starting from Kozhikode -

WAYANAD:- Kalpatta, Pookot Lake, Edakkal Caves, Pakshipathalam, Lakkidi, Sultan Bathery,Banasura Sagar Dam, Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, Neelimala View Point, Meenmutty Falls.Finish this and travel southwards towards THRISUR.

THRISUR:- Athirapally Waterfalls and Vazachal waterfalls, Anakkayam, Guruvayoor & Koodal Manikyam Temple and Parambikkulam Wildlife Sanctuary in Palakkad. Then travel further southwards to COCHIN.

COCHIN:- Jewish Synagogue, Cherai beach, Marine Drive, Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica, Fortkochi & Chinese Fishing Nets, Mattancherry Palace, Kodanad Elephant Sanctuary, Ezhatumugam Nature Village.

From cochin towards east the following attraction are there:

Munar, Eravikulam National Park, Indo-swiss diary farm, Chinnar wildlife Sanctuary, Anamudi, Tata Tea Museum, Iduki arch Dam and Thekkady where you have Periyar Tiger Reserve.

Then travel downwards to Alapuzha Backwaters where you can have a relaxing stay at House Boat.

ALAPUZHA: Statue of Karumadikuttan, Mannarasala Sri Nagaraja Temple, Revi Karuna Karan Memorial Museum.

From here travel more downwards towards Trivandrum via Varkala beach and enjoy kathakali dance.

TRIVANDRUM: Priyadarshini Planetarium, Vilijam Rock Cut Temple, Kuthiramalika, Kanakakunnu Palace.

Can roam around kovalam beach, thus covering most of all kerala before boarding at Trivandrum/Tiruvananthapuram airport.

Hope this helps you in planning your trip.

10. Re: Honeymoon trip for 7-10 days in September 1st week.

Hi friends,

Thanks a lot for your help. But I am having several more confusions. Pls help to resolve them.

1) I am planning to go to Munnar for 2N/3D for first part. From tripadvisor review, I have shortlisted Tea sanctuary, KDHP House, Munnar. But I am not getting any idea about th ebooking procedure of it. The contact no I found is +91 4865 230141 is not working. Website is also not working. Pls let me know how to book the hotel?

2) For last 2N/3D, I am planning to Kovalam. Is it a good place to spend that time?

3) In the mid time I am planning to go Thekkady. For rest 2N/3D what will be the best option? After Thekkady, is there anything new in Alapuzha?

Pls Help.

regards,

Subho
