"The Dam, The Lion Safari, The Cliff Beach Experience."

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 17, 2017
Trivandrum is house to the Neyyar Dam. It was a mediocre experience. Lot of locals visiting this place and nothing much for travellers. But if you have to get to the Neyyar Lion Safari Park, you have to go through this Dam.
There is a restaurant but you will have to take about 50+ steps to get there. OK food for a quick trip to the Lion Safari.
The Lion Safari was not at all a pleasant experience as what was expected. You will feel miserable looking at the condition of the Lions and the way they are kept. Also you will be taken in small 11 seater buses that are made like cages but not all comfortable and very bad experience. One can avoid this.
Best part about Trivandrum is the Varkala Beach which is besides a beautiful cliff. Excellent views from the cliff and the beach is so beautiful. Nice tibetan restaurants and many shops on the cliffs. Excellent walk experience on the cliff. Beach is pristine and filled with expats and well maintained. A Must Visit when in Trivandrum.
Also please take out time to visit Padmanabhaswamy Temple which we could not cover but I am sure that will be the Best Experience.

"Experience galore"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 7, 2017
Out of entire visit to different places in Kerala, Trivandrum is one of the best places.

The place is not only good for shopping but also for different types of experiences like Scuba diving and seeing fishermen doing fishing in the morning. We went to the beach adjoining our Samudra resort.. We reached there at 7 am and for two hours we were enjoying seeing 50 fishermen pulling fishing net. We even helped them in pulling rope attached to nets. The experience of watching this is amazing.

"Equisite sunsets, hoary temples and welcoming culture"

  • Posted Oct 19, 2017
Water is the element to enjoy in Kerala. Speed boating in the back waters, bathing in pristine beaches, glorious sunsets and soaking in the monsoon rains are all revitalizing experiences.
