This is a review of the village tour that KTDC conducts in Kovalam. Fish market is one of the places covered in the tour, others are the coir making unit, coconut products factory, saree weaving unit, vegetable farm, dairy and it ends with a sumptuous traditional lunch at the house of the local folks (even our kids liked the lunch). We had a half day tour though longer tours are possible. We had an excellent guide, Mr. Joby, who came to meet us the earlier day, explained the tour and then guided us very well during the tour. Part of the tour cost is used to support the owners of the units that you visit.
Not many people know about the tour, probably since its been recently launched. Luckily, the hotel we stayed in (Turtle on the beach) had a brochure about this.
