The stay is very good for us. We had taken B/s hive which is good.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The taxi owner/driver had really helped us. Even after the sightseeing is over, he had taken us to bus stop, waited for 1 hour till the bus came and then got the seat.

Activities & things to do: See cookers walk, guna caves, bryant park, golf park and others which are worth watching.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: The taxi owner/driver , ZAHIR (09842075657) has really helped us. Even after the sightseeing is over, he had taken us to bus stop, waited for 1 hour till the bus came and then got the seat. A big thanks to ZAHIR ((09842075657)). I strongly recommend opting this person for sightseeing

"Cool holiday"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 25, 2012
Kodaikanal is the ultimate destination to enjoy the nature amidst lush green forests and mountains with small water streams. It gives yourself the much deserved break and rejuvinates you with tons of oxygen filled with smell of natures own fragrance (eucalyptus). You can also relish the view of nature from the highest point in Kodai.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Shopping in the downtown is great..having the south indian delicacies like dosa and idlies...nothing can beat the taste of having a hot cup of soup amidst the coolest open air restaurant. shopping will not be complete with out getting the natures oil thats is made out of tree oil. Not to be missed is the dominos pizza outlet, which ensures that you dont miss out on your favorite pizzas.

Activities & things to do: you can take the trip to visit the tourist spots within and around kodai by contacting the travel desk in your hotel. The visit to Coaker walk and pine forest is a must 'to see' places. Coakers walk is an awesome treat for your eyes to see and enjoy the mountains especially the mist covered ones.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Kodai is reachable by bus and the nearest airport is Madurai. Madurai is well connected by air & train.
