Kozhikode, formerly known as Calicut, is a vibrant city in the southern state of Kerala. Famous for its historical significance, beautiful beaches, and delectable cuisine, the coastal city offers a unique blend of cultural richness and natural beauty. It was a significant spice trade center and is close to Kappad Beach, where Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama landed in 1498. Some top tourist attractions in Kozhikode are the peaceful backwaters, Kozhippara falls, Thusharagiri waterfalls, Beypore, and Kakkayam.

Kochi, also referred to as Cochin, is an enchanting city situated on the southwest coast of India in Kerala. Popularly known as ‘Queen of the Arabian Sea’, it is a flourishing port city that offers a rich blend of mesmerising natural beauty and vibrant culture. Serving as Kerala’s commercial, industrial, and financial capital, it is the crowning jewel of the state’s tourism landscape. With gorgeous beaches, a far-reaching shoreline and breathtaking backwaters, expansive tea plantations, numerous spice estates, lush greenery, striking architecture, and ancient temples, it serves as an exceptional holiday destination for travellers with diverse tastes and interests.

Known for its stunning beaches, Agatti island is a 6 km long land terrain blessed with aquatic diversity. Home to the archipelago's only airstrip, it connects Lakshadweep to the rest of India and the world. Agatti is popular amongst those looking for a bit of deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, sailing, skiing, and kayaking. The island also serves as an ideal base for exploring the uninhabited and serene isles of Bangaram, Pitti, Thinnakara, Parali-I and Parali-II, which lie in close proximity.
