Trip to KeralaI had booked my kerala trip with Rasoone travels through Travel Triangle. Everything staring from pickup till the end of the trip was very well organised and executed. Thanks to Rasoone travels team for making my trip wonderful and memorable. Behaviour of cab driver throughout the trip was one of the important factor in making my trip more memorable. He took us to several places which were not even planned in itenirary and fully cooperated with us even when we got late due to kids.

Trip to KeralaThe stay in Munnar was excellent. But boat house stay was very average. The staffs in boat house were good but boat was very old and rooms were not cleaned. The TT agent assured me of great experience but I was disappointed. Also the driver was not aware of roads and we were struggling for more than 1 hour just to find boat house location.

Though Malayam is the most commonly spoken language in Kochi, most locals do understand both Hindi as well as English.
The best time to visit Kochi is between November and February, when temperatures are most comfortable and the weather is dry.
Start with the very artsy Kashi Art Cafe, hop over for a vegan sandwich to the Solar Cafe, try Norwegian salmon at The Rice Boat, dig into Malabar parottas at History Restaurant or savour traditional Kerala cuisine at the Malabar Junction. Food in Kochi is a delight.
In Kochi, you can buy antiques, crafts and spices from Kochi and most importantly you can join the Onam Festival or the grand Kerala shopping festival if you're a shopaholic.
