I will be in Kannur Jan end (Jan 28th). I have until 1st Feb for sightseeing in Kerala (4 days). Any ideas on what places should be must-visit? Are alleppey/kumarakom easy to reach from Kannur?

In Kannur town, the fort is worth a visit, but we thought the museum was very poor. Also check our some of the recent threads regarding theyams

Alleppey and Kumarakom are quite a distance away and will take a long time on a train.

As you aren't staying for long, may I suggest investigating Wayanad which can be reached in 3 hours by bus and seeing some wildlife.

Don't forget there are beautiful beaches south of the town, with lovely places to stay. Also (I believe) there are houseboats and backwater trips which go from Payyannur.

Enjoy your trip

I think you could cover Alleppey, Kumarkom, Fort Cochi, and even some of the hills...depends on how you would like to do it thogh..travelling in and around Kerala is quite easy...

Near Kannur, you can visit St Angelo's fort, Muzhapilangad drive in beach and Bekal fort. Those can be done in two days. Catch a late night train to cochin and visit fort Cochin, Alleppy house boat etc
