"Quilon/Kollam & The Backwaters" Quilon by Willettsworld

Quilon Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 154 photos

Kollam, known to the Portuguese as Quilon, is located in southern Kerala, 71km (43 miles) north of the state capital Trivandrum. I came here from Alappuzha (Alleppey) on a Backwaters Tour which is probably the main reason for coming here as there is little to see in the town itself. In fact, I only stayed here for a night and then walked around the town the following morning before taking a train the short distance to Varkala.
