Understand[edit]

The cities of Malappuram can be rather ugly because of haphazard construction and the large number of noisy motorcycles. But the villages in the district have a lot of greenery, and the undulating landscape is bewitching. The sea and rivers surround the villages, and green farms and fields are widespread.

Get in[edit]

There is a big airport at Kondotty. There are major railway stations in Feroke, Tirur and Angadippuram Parappanangadi. Buses are available from Kozhikode and Coimbatore.

Get around[edit]

Local buses are not as safe as in other parts of Kerala. They ask the passengers to board and get down while still moving. Minibuses are more popular because they are polite and slow. Buses cost ₹7 for three km. Auto-rickshaws are very popular and they charge minimum 20 only ₹15 per km. Air-conditioned taxis and jeeps are available for ₹1,000 for a day. Air-conditioned buses are also available at higher rates.
