Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala, has emerged as one of the leading tourist destinations in India. Trivandrum is in fact a city bustling with life and cultural activities. Here are a few factors that make the city different from its counterparts, in terms of the quality of life.
Trivandrum enjoys a tropical climate mainly due to its close proximity to sea. The weather is generally pleasant throughout the year. The summer season is from April- May and is usually warm and sunny. The Monsoon season begins in June and the city gets abundant rainfall. Sit indoors, have a hot cup of coffee and relax! Indeed, the perfect way to unwind!
The ever increasing population in the city has forced the government authorities to implement several road network improvement projects. Such projects have significantly helped in linking all the important destinations within the city.
Cost of Living
For food freaks, the city offers numerous restaurants where good quality food is available at cheaper rates. The city also hosts classy hotels and several multinational fast-food outlets where fancier menus are available. The Thattukadas or the roadside vans around the city offer delectable food at cost-effective prices. Hotels and eateries offering x-generation foods like pastas, pizzas, nuggets, and coffee shops have, in fact, become common sights in Trivandrum.
There are lots of apparel shops in the city that sell local, national and foreign brands at affordable prices. Several new shops have come up that offer some of the major foreign brands including Levi's, Lee, Nike, Adidas and Reebok. If you are on the lookout for ethnic apparels, do visit Karalkada, the oldest apparel house in Kerala and the retail shop, Fab India.
The best part about Trivandrum is that you can still find a good, decent accommodation at an affordable cost. Today, more and more people are taking to flat/apartment culture and this has resulted in a spate of real estate companies flourishing in this sector. Now there are a broad variety of options for people to choose from, ranging from independent houses to villas to mid high rises to high rise apartments.
