Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Kerala  /  Kollam District  /  Kollam
The bustling old port city of Kollam has long stood as a center of international trade and mercantilism, and the center of town continues the tradition with its lively scenes of commerce. Downtown also has a few historical sights, including storied temples, colonial British architecture, and monuments. That said, most people make the trip to Kollam for its access to the Kerala Backwaters. Less busy than many gateways to the network of rivers, lakes, and canals, entrance to the scenic area here allows a gentle introduction to the rural environment. Use our India vacation planning tool to arrange your visit to Kollam and any other destinations in India that take your fancy.
