Overall another trip through Kerala roads. But the good thing is that near trivandrum they are constructing four lane, so may be a good drive in the future, but I faced too much traffic snarls on the way. On the way I have visited Kollam beach which was great and had food from a dhaba style restaurant near kazhakootam.

We had selected few destinations in Kerala and started our visit from Kochi. There were nice arrangements made by Go Kerala Tour operator. An Innova car was with us for full week and during the travel we visited Alleppy, Tekkady, Kantya kumari, Tiruananthpuram, Kovalam and Kochi. The driver was very helpful and well-mannered. He knew Hindi and there was no problem in the communication. All the destinations are nice and we really enjoyed the trip.

Itís very comfortable to travel by train from Cochin to Trivandrum by AC chair car. Pantry cab is there, so no need to worry about the food and drinks. On the way we can enjoy the landscapes and sceneries. We can save time and spend more at Kovalam.

It was a long journey but not a headache one as the road side scenes were good and the roads were also quite smooth so itís not a big difficulty to travel a long distance journey on road.
