"Suitable Kerala travel by car"

Posted 6 Feb

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.



"Crowded roads make for a frustrating driving experience"

I visited Kovalam by road from Kochi. Despite being a national highway the roads are bad and comparing to the NHs in other parts of India this road is pathetic. Not only are the roads narrow, passing bang on through the cities and towns with heavy traffic but also poorly maintained. The time and fuel consumed is comparatively large. If left with no choice it is better to start early in the morning around 4 AM from Kochi before the traffic sets in.

It’s 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 good experience traveling by car, our driver was good. We took a sedan for our journey, the car was well maintained and neat. We stopped at many locations in between. Most of the time we were in the car travelling, if we had taken a bigger car it would have been more comfortable.

overall another trip through kerala roads. but the good thing is that near trivandrum they are constructing fourlane, 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 restaurent near kizhakkoottam
