      Long stay visitor Kovalam

      I would love to know the best way to find a studio or one bedroom apartment for 3 months (Nov. > Feb. 2014 ) in Kovalam, Kerala. Searching on internet appears to only produce the luxury and expensive accommodation that are not within my budget.
      All suggestions are very much appreciated.
      Thank you...

      First time in India

      by rox-san Online Now Mar 8, 2007 at 8:53 AM

      Thank you so much for your input. Last night I discovered the Thorn Tree forum from Lonely Planet and came across loads of antimalarials questions. Until I came across some upsetting news about this girl Kinga who hitchhicked her way to Africa from Poland and died of cerebral malaria in Ghana. Check out her website http://www.kingafreespirit.pl/kingaen/, it's IMPRESSIVE, beautiful and heartbreaking. So thank you guys, I will take my pills. Now the question is, which one? The side effects of Lariam (sp?) are absolutely frightening but the once a week thing is appealing. Anyone taking it? My other options are Malarone, Doxycycline and maybe Primaquine? Any recommandation? I'm calling my travel clinic today but as you can guess they didn't do a great job at recommanding me taking the drug in the first place... Thanks again for your replies :o)

      First time in India

      by rox-san Online Now Mar 7, 2007 at 4:15 PM

      And first time on virtual tourist too. I'm three weeks away from landing in Thiruvananthapuram and I need to know the thruth about mosquitoes! I know it sounds silly but friends & doctors really bug me with the malaria pill when I'm really trying to stay clear of medication. However, I intend to compensate by thoroughfully using the DEET repellent as well as the permethrin spray on my clothes. (If you guys really think its necessary b/c when I asked one of the local men he kind of chuckled and said not to worry about mosquitoes & malaria...). Is there anything I should know about possible medical/health issues? I supposed I can't escape from travellers diarrhea but is it really necessary to bring antibiotics for that purpose? I mean how bad can it be!? Sorry, I had to ask... Also, are iodine tablets necessary or I can just buy bottled water?
      From reading VT's postings I gathered the "dress code" for women should be pretty subtle, long-sleeved t-shirts, pants, longs skirts/dresses, avoid sleeveless and jeans and shorts. That's sounds pretty good... As for money (being from Europe I totally lost sense of foreign currencies so forgive me), should I get travellers checks here before I leave (USD or rupee?) and bring a small amount of cash (USD) to change over there? Best to bring my CC also just in case, right? Well that's it for now but I may have more questions later. Thank you so much for your help and don't hesitate to throw any advice or tip for an indian first-timer. Cheers, ROX-SAN

      by kapss Online Now Oct 26, 2005 at 8:08 PM

      Hello Everybody,

      Good Day.

      I am a Software Engineer from Bombay; shall be flying tomorrow (28 Oct 2005) morning to Coimbatore.

      This shall be my first trip to Kerala. I hope to be able to visit a few places (in around 4 days) before I reach my destination: a village in Vandazy (Palghat/Palakkad).

      The places I have been contemplating so far are Munnar-Kollukumalai, Thekkady-Periyar and Aleppey (Alppuzha). (This is a very flexible list.)


      As it has turned out, this shall be an extemporary jaunt; so I haven't planned much. Basically, I'll reach Coimbatore tomorrow and need to chart my way therefrom.

      I am aware, this is little bit at the eleventh hour but I shall be hopeful of any suggestions (best mode of transport, places to visit etc. ) on the itinerary. If there is any traveller/resident, who is in the same neck of the woods, it might be a good idea to touch base. :)


      Pleasant times,

      Ta Taah
