Kozhikode in a day

Hi folks

We are planning a visit to Kozhikode for a day or a day and half in August, what would be the best (day and night) place to visit? I would be visiting with my family of 5 which includes my 3 year daughter.

I know a day might not be enough to visit Kozhikode so I want to make the most out of whatever time i have got.

Cheers,

Tejas

Again the day 6 , plan of alleppey to kanyakumari is little long journey, it takes approx 7 hours to do that stretch. So finishing the houseboat curise at 9 am , you would reach kanyakumari only by 4 pm and then planning to go back to kovalam plan is not something doable

So if there is no other purpose to arrive at Kozhikode other than holiday , and if you could change your arrival point, please do that to cochin and as planned depart from trivandrum. The suggested itinerary then is

Munnar 2 nights

Alleppey 1 night

Kovalam 2 nights

Kanyakumari 1 night

hi vineet

plan is doable, but involves lots of travel.

you won't get enough time to enjoy these places.

you can limit number of destinations if possible .

Halo Vineet,This plan can be done,but you said you have a 3 year old daughter accompanying you,This is going to make the kid so tired and exhausted,,either you change your arrival airport to Cochin and do the south kerala and fly out from Trivandrum or arrive in Calicut and include Wayanad and do uptil Alleppey and fly out from Cochin.

Thanks for the Responses

Since Air ticket is non-refundable, need to arrive at Kozhikode only. As journey will end at Trivandrum Airport - would like to see MUST visit places/locations enroute

Since time will be limited factor at all destinations - pl. suggest what I should attend or Miss

Its my 1st trip to Kerala with family, interest is in local customes, nature, beaches, hills.

Temples/Historical places less preferred unless extra ordinary
