Whenever we write about a destination, we tell you about what can be done there and how to go about spending an active day doing something interesting and visiting something interest. The charm of a trip to India lies in it’s busy-ness and most places help you explore exactly this.

But Kollam is one of those towns that is exactly the opposite. A little distance from Alleppey, this old grand port has now retired and is enjoying retirement to. For you, this means a great break from your active journey to just soak in the surroundings.

A lazy cruise along the Ashtamudi Lake topped by a good book to read or doze off to, some idle splashing around and some great food, all make up Kollam. Travel with IndeBo and we’ll help you discover this hidden treasure. Stop by this town to recharge your batteries before continuing on with your Great Indian Tour.
