Visitor Information

Excellent brochures, maps, pamphlets, and transportation information on all of Kerala's districts are available at any KTDC office. In Kochi, the office is open daily 8–7. Trivandrum's two KTDC offices—one in town and one at the airport—are open weekdays 10–5.

In Kochi, an alternative source of information is the Tourist Desk, a private, nonprofit organization that conducts moderately priced tours and provides clear, straightforward information about the state. In Kannur, the District Tourism Promotion Council is quite active. Central Kerala is well served by the ATDC. The Government of India Tourist Office—open weekdays 9–5:30 and Saturday 9–1—has its own vehicles, boats, lodgings, and tours.
