Dear All,

I want to travel in December month for 10 days in Kerala with family, and I prefer to stay more time sea side and river side.

Please suggest me good hotels with chip-pest price.

Regards

Thanks Arupratan.

I will start my travel from Delhi to Kerala. I don't know the place where I can find good sea beaches and nice rivers where we can spends two-two days.

and budget for hotel/ OYO Rooms are 2 to 4 K per day max. Because I want more money spends on exploring and shopping not on stay.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaches_in_Kerala to know about the beaches in Kerala.

Similarly read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerala_backwaters to know about back waters in Kerala.

Do some research and decide which are good.

aarosh, I appreciate that people should do some homework, but if, when they come here and get sent to Wikipedia, we can't complain about diminishing membership.

Yogesh2201, welcome to IndiaMike. I hope that you will find a lot of the information you need right here! You have already found the Kerala subforum

You do need to narrow in on your questions. Kerala has a lot of coast, and even more lake, rivers and backwaters. It also offers hill stations and jungle.

The two names that immediately come to mind for Kerala beaches are Kovalam and Varkala. I only know the former, but both will give you the full-on international-tourism aspect of Kerala. Both should also offer accommodation at all budgets.

How do you intend to reach Kerala? If you fly, Kovalam is sort-of Trivandrum's beach. A short trip from the airport by car.

You can read all sorts of personal experience in other threads, including accommodation details, but for specific costs on specific dates, even I would suggest that, once you have decided where you want to stay, Tripadvisor and similar sites will be best, especially if you are really focussed on lowest price.

Please bear in mind that December is High Season for all of Southern India. Prices and availability will be higher. If you want to come to Kerala for less cost, I suggest April/May. You are coming from Delhi, so you will have no trouble with the temperatures, but you may have with the humidity.

I agree Nick. He mentioned that he did not know about the beaches and rivers of Kerala where he could stay for two days each. I gave him the Wikipedia entry so that he could do some research and short list a few. Based on that further inputs could be given.

I booked my Kerala trip with Sree from Srees Tours and Travels. You can talk to him as he arranged pretty good hotels, cabs and all in a good (cheap) price. His number is: 9447797564 and 8129497390 or can mail him: sreestours@gmail.com. He replies promptly for mails too.

Day 7 - Kovalam
Day 8 - Kanyakumari (poovar beach enroute)
Day 9 - Back to Trivendrum - explore trivendrum
Day 10 - Back home.
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa, VOF, Kedarkantha, Kuari Pass, Brahmatal Trek

A full day is too much for fort kochi, if you are arriving in cochin by noon, you can do sightseeing till evening, we explored fort kochi on foot within 3 hours, besides no shopping options there

The commercial sector of this amalgam of towns and islands, Ernakalam, has all the shopping options anyone could desire of an Indian city

Ernakulum has shopping options, not fort kochi, saw 2-3 shops selling home decoration items but nothing uncommon and prices were steep

Backwater experience is better in Kumarkom rather than Alleppey.

What makes you say that? I have done both, but not Kumarakom for many years. Still, I'd say that Alleppey is the great centre for backwaters. Just look at this map and notice the huge amount of waterways right on the doorstep for Alleppey.

Kumarakom may be better for resorts, although possibly now it has too many. Of course, if staying in Kumarakom, then that is where a person might want to do a river/backwater cruise from.

IMO Kumarkom is better though you may have a different view.
