Hello Readers,

I am planning a trip to Kerala starting Nov 8th. I will land in Trivandrum on the 8th and will have a Innova at our disposal throughout our stay.

I plan to cover Kanyakumari, Kovalam, Varkalla, Alleppy,Thekkeddy and Munnar.

2 days at Kovalam beach (one day to see the beach and another day to visit Kanyakumari)
2 days at Varkalla beach - (to enjoy a lonely beach with blue waters and scenic beauty)
1 day at Alleppy (boat crusie)
2 days at Thekkedy
3 days at Munnar - to relax and see the surroundings

1. Am i covering the right places, as the motive is to enjoy nature and as far as possible remain away from too much crowd
2. Do i need to include anything else in the itinerary and remove some other
3. Are the destination in order of a sensible route plan or am I driving up and down the same place
4.I see a lot of homestay advertisements on net, are these the best places to stay. cleaniness and hygine are high on the agenda to choose a place to stay
5. What will it cost me to take an overnight cruise on Alleppy, is it worth it. which is the best route (we are four adults and four children)
6. Which are good hotels to stay on each place
7. I plan to drive back to Mumbai,any good places to eat local food on the way. Also good restaurants in Kerala that are a must visit for local delicacies (veg and non veg)

Thank you for going through my long list of questions, I will look forward to your reply.

Hi & Welcome to IM,

Apologies for the Delay in replying to your post.

Your itinery is Fine, Look through Hotels section for Accom reviews.

I suggest for your return Journey you consider travelling up the Konkan Coast.

For restaraunts, see Kerala Section in Forums, there is a thread
at top of page re eating places.

For a Double Bedroom A/C Houseboat will be approx 5,000 - 7,000rps for a O'Night cruise.

All the Best
