Kozhikode – Kozhikode, previously Calicut, was dubbed the "City of Spices" for its role as the major trading point of eastern spices. This sea town is an eclectic mix of Portuguese, Dutch & British architecture, aesthetic beaches, aromatic spice gardens, rich knowledge of Ayurveda, a unique mix of Hindu & Mappila traditions and a delightful Malabar coastline. It has been endowed with natural beauty reflected in picturesque country sides, magnanimous hills, gurgling streams, historic sites, wildlife sanctuaries, quaint villages, busy bazaars and serene backwaters.
Kollam – Kollam , a beautiful town sandwiched between the Ashtamudi Lake and the Arabian Sea, is located 71 kilometres from Trivandrum, the capital city of Kerala. Known for its historic relevance, the place is also the nerve centre of Kerala's cashew industry. Kollam inspires in every sense of the word - not just in the long stretches of backwaters, beaches or hill stations; but also in the lush paddy fields, quaint towns, houseboats, streets and the monsoons. Its salubrious nature is pantheism to the people who visit its atmosphere, here; a true manifestation of the beauty and delight of God’s own country.
