As part of our trip, we will be moving out from Kochi and staying in Vayalar area I am wondering if a short trip to Kottayam from Vayalar is worthwhile? What would you recommend doing there? And is the distance from Vayalar worthwhile?

Appreciate any advice

Nothing much to see in Kottayam. If time permits, you can go to Kumarakom. You can explore the Vembanad lake in house boats and also try the Kerala cuisine served in the house boats.
