Day 8: Flyback home

Take a late evening flight from Trivandrum, so that you get ample time to look for your favourite silk saree in the town market before you head home. I highly recommend visiting Jayalakshmi Silks, a huge showroom offering wide variety of sarees spread across floors! You will surely find something you like here. 🛍️


Kerala is an incredible place to visit!
