I spending 28 days in Varkala this December. I have accommodation pre-booked. I'm thinking 3000 rupees a day spending money. I hope to spend a couple of days each in Kochie and Trivandrum. Can you give me a idea how much things cost. Thank you.

Hi,

If your accommodation is already paid for, then Rs3000 per day should be plenty for food and drink, and some travel expenses.

If you can give an idea of what you imagine spending money on, it will be easier to estimate your costs.

There are very expensive hotels and restaurants in India, as well as much more affordable examples, so a lot depends on your activities and travel style, luxury or basic?

If you do visit Trivandrum, then I recommend an extra day or so to visit Kanyakamari, the pilgrim spot at the very southern tip of India. You can travel by bus or train from Trivandrum.

It depends on what you want to do or buy!

3000 a day is plenty in Varkala. When I stay in Varkala 3000 can last me a week!

Tell us what your daily life is, what you spend when you are away to determine if ₹3000 is sufficient or not. A buffet for two with drinks can easily cost that much at Taj.

3000 a day is my budget for two when on holiday (excluding accommodation) so you should be fine. On a long term trip I would normally budget 1000 a day including accomodation (although itís getting harder!).

A decent restaurant meal will set you back 300-800rs. A very fulfilling Thali will cost anywhere from 30-120rs. A beer is about 150rs.

A taxi to trivanduram is about 1300rs from Varkala if my memory serves me correctly. You can get a room for as little as 500rs a night.

Anything specific you want to know? Good luck!
