Hello all,

Thanks for reading.

Please would you be able to advise with the itinerary we have worked out so far with regards to timing, recommendations, etc?

26 - arrive early in cochin. overnight in cochin.
27 - overnight in cochin.
28 - visit kodanand en route to munnar. overnight in munnar.
29 - visit munnar, maybe periyar, if time?
30 - leave munnar/periyar. drive back to Kumarakom.
31 - overnight on vembanad lake
1 - take backwater cruise for 1 night past mannarsala & amritapuri
2 - arrive in kollam

Huge thanks,

Welcome to kochi, You could add Athirampally and Cherai Beach to your kochi itenary. Kochi to munnar would take you two to three hours by road depending on the traffic. And if you are spending your new year in Kerala, then you could think of spending it in Vasco da Gama Square in Fort Kochi, which is the only public place for New Year Celebrations. Let me know if you need any help here.

Whoa...Too far off. And if you're plg to leave Munnar in half a day, then why visit there at all. Munnar would take at least 2 days for a complete see...
I guess you should skip Periyar, and start for Kumarakom in the afternoon of 30th.

I would choose between Munnar an periyar, Munnar being my favourite. Do make a reservation id you want a nice hotel.
