HolidayIQ Reviewer Saket Aggarwal adds, “It’s a good destination if you have money to travel and want to visit good clean beaches that are relatively cheap. The whole island is geared for tourists on whom the economy depends. Places to visit include beaches and dormant volcanoes. It has large Hindu temples with a strong connection to India. Food is excellent, and very cheap, even in restaurants. One can choose different dishes that can be mixed with rice, with which a combo kind of dish can be made. It was a very good place for snorkelling and diving. Rates are cheap, around USD 120 for one day including pick up and drop. Good for a laid-back vacation as well as fun-filled activities for the whole family.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Akshaya Patil adds, “The beach was not crowded as we went there in morning. We saw some fishermen fishing there. We also spotted some hermit crabs on the shore. If you land up on the beach before going to the houseboat, you will come across some shop selling fish on the way back. So if you are seafood lovers, you should buy some fresh fish from these shops and give it to the cook on the houseboat - they will cook it for you. We got fish at a cheaper rate outside than at the stall where the houseboat takes you to buy fish. There are different ways to enjoy the backwaters of Allepey. Allepey in itself can be a 5-day trip - exploring Allepey by public boat journeys or exploring the canals with small boats where houseboats cannot go.”Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kapil Kumar says, “There are a lot of other sightseeing places that can be seen in and around the city. One of the top-rated attractions is "Nong Nooch garden", which is in the north part of the city about a 30 min drive from the Walking Street. It is spread over 500 acres and you can easily spend half a day to see all the greenery along with some manmade concrete animals. You can also enjoy the elephant show and musical performances within the garden. The entry costs around 800 THB but if you book online you can save yourself a lot of money. I booked through "Hotels2thailand. Com" and its prize was almost halved. You can also see other websites like TripAdvisor or KLook. Com, but I found the former cheaper than all.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Smriti Mahale adds, “Gokarna is the ideal place for a trip with family or friends. The elders can pay a visit to the Omkareshwar Temple that supposedly homes a piece of the Holy Aatmaling of Lord Shiva. The Ling is in the shape of a cow's ear, hence the name Gokarna! There is always a long queue for the darshan at the Aatmaling. Devotees are allowed to touch the same for a millisecond. The temple also has a Goshaala where one can feed the cows and calves which are considered to be holy. The small town of Gokarna has three beaches. Om Beach is the most prominent of them all. Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Santhosh Wilson shares, “Kanyakumari is significant for its geographical location. The place where the three seas are considered to meet is a very small sea-town. There are plenty of hotel accommodation options ranging from low cost to luxury. Most of the hotels are affordable ones. I stayed with the family twice in Hotel Madhini. The places worth visiting are the Vivekananda Rock, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial, the beach, also known as Triveni Sangam, the numerous wayside shops, the watchtower etc. Also, it’s nice to climb up the lighthouse if one has enough time. Unlike the spiralling towers which make many people afraid of the height, this has steps similar to the normal staircase.”Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer shamath adds, “It is a nice beach but they should work at keeping the beach areas clean round the clock. There is no frequent public transportation available and to get a bus to Mangalore city one needs to walk 1 to 2 km or one has to opt for a local auto rickshaw. The department concerned has to work on the transportation issue and come up with some comfortable transportation facilities that are frequently available to the visitors at an affordable rate.” Read Full Review
