On second day morning took breakfast and left the resort. Today we have check-in in Geethu International Hotel, Poovar.
So after check-out the Kovalam resort, we drive straight to Poovar. On the way to Poovar, we stopped at Poovar Golden Sand Beach. This is a long stretch beach and have beautiful view.
See the panoramic view of the Poovar Beach below:
After we spend some time here (around 45mins), we left the beach and went to the Hotel Geethu International. Check-in to the hotel and took some rest.
Around 2PM, we finished our lunch in this hotel and left for backwater cruse. There are many boating services available here. They charge around 2000 per hour per boat for 6 seater boat. They will take you to the sea and show some point of interest places through the backwater channel.
There are few floating restaurant on the backwater. You eat sea food here, but prices are very costlier. So think about ordering anything. They will charge Rs.300 for briyani, which tastes below average.
We hired 2 hour boating and return to the hotel around 5PM. We completed the dinner around 8PM and went to sleep.
On day 3, we wake-up early morning and bath. Around 8 AM we completed the breakfast and drive to Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum). We reached Trivandrum around 10 AM and went to Kerala Science and Technology Museum. There is nothing for me, but it's very useful for school students. This place includes a planetarium, science and technology gallery, 3D&4D theater which has shows about tech and astrology.
After spending around 45 mins, we left to Tirivananthapuram Zoo. It's medium size zoo, which host some 20 types animals includes bear, tiger, deer, monkeys, reptiles and birds.
Here you can spend around 1 hour. After this zoo, we left the place and rive to another beach Shangumugam Beach. This is another long stretch beach and have good panoramic view. Just walk and you will spend around 1 hour. Around 4 PM we left the beach and drive straight to the Hotel. We reached the hotel around 6 PM. We did some shopping for spices, have dinner and went to sleep around 9 PM.
There are many other places to see if you have time. There are around 20 point of interest places.
We planned to wake-up very early morning to get back to our home. So then we can avoid traffic and worst ever road condition.
So woke-up around 3 AM and left the hotel and drive towards HOME.
