Description and Day-wise Itinerary
Cochin
Enjoys a 2000 year old tradition of maritime interaction with the rest of the world. Christianity took roots here before its introduction in Europe, and the Jewish settlement here, traces its ancestry to the times of Jesus in Palestine. Since exposed to the Arabs and Chinese before major European expeditions the city is a mix of all these influences, examples being the Dutch Palace at Mattanchery and Chinese fishing nets, one of the earliest success stories in automation. The metropolis embraces Ernakulam on the mainland along with Willington Island and the Fort Cochin Peninsula.

Thiruvananthapuram ( Trivandrum )
The capital of Kerala and close to Kovalam ( Beach ) - it is also a centre for various Gurukulas of Kallarippayattu (Schools of ancient martial arts and systems of mental discipline) and Ayurveda (ancient herbal based systems of medicine and healing). Ayurvedic Massages are a speciality, but require careful selection. Genuine Ayurvedic Treatment Programs customised to Individual profiles are available in select health resorts.
