Kollam aka Quilon is Kerala’s old seaport city. It lies between the Ashtamudi Lake and the Lakshadweep sea. The location entitles the town as one of the best backwater destinations in Kerala.
Kollam is a prominent tourist destination. Ashtamudi Lake covers 30% of the city. The eight-hour boat trip between Kollam and Alappuzha is an ideal way to explore the Kerala backwaters. Kollam is renowned for cashew processing and coir manufacturing too.
Kollam is also famous for its sightseeing places like the Kollam Beach, Thirumullavaram Beach, Thangassery Beach, Munroe Island, Ashtamudi Lake, Sasthamkotta Lake, Neendakara Port and Alumkadavu Boat Building Yard. Rameshwara Temple, Achencoil and Mayyanad, Amritapuri Ashram, Aryankavu, Chavara, Kottarakkara, Oachira and Karunagappally are the prominent cultural as well as religious centres of Kollam. You can also visit several churches and mosques in Kollam including Pullichira Church and Chinnakkada Palli.
Kallada Boat race is a prominent festival. This boat race attracts tourists from all over the globe and is usually held on the 19th January along with the great elephant march.
Plan your Kollam tour from October to March. The peak seasons to visit this pristine location are from November to January. You need about two full days Kollam entirely.
