... take in your surroundings. I have definitely found India to be such a contrast. Most of the people are so dignified, polite and dress beautifully. They take pride in their shop/home etc constantly sweeping and washing down the street outside their shops but the surrounds of these are used as dumping grounds for anything and everything. The waterways are choked with rubbish yet people still use this to drink, wash and bathe in. It is fascinating to see huge palatial homes ...

Many of the men in this area wear these white knee length table clothes tied at the front, not sure what they are called it made sense for the fisherman as they were wading through water. Gradually more and more people got on and we finally set off a few minutes late. I had a list of the stations, the name ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Kanyakumari is the tip of India where the Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean meet so its not a place to stay for more than a night or two. We had to stay for three and the rooms were clean, the sea veiw room was lovely. Street view had a balcony. What makes this hotel nice is the staff. From check in to room service. The food in the restaurant is very good. We ate there several time and breakfast is also really good. Centrally located and very accommadating. If you are going to stay there you might as well have the seaview if its available.
