2 week Southern India itinerary

 
Day 1 - Trivandrum - Spend the day wandering and exploring Kerala’s capital city. Admire its British colonial architecture, visit an art gallery, or stroll through the intricate Puthenmalika Palace, which was previously closed to the public for 150 years.

Day 2 & 3 - Varkala - Head up the coast to the town of Varkala. Explore the Keralan coast, which is home to some of India’s most beautiful beaches on the Arabian Sea. Soaring cliffs protect Varkala’s sandy bay and, depending on the time of year, dolphins can be spotted from high up on the rocks.

Day 4 & 5 - Kochi - Spread over several islands, Kochi is a fascinating place full of Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, and English influences.

The next day, head to the Mattancherry part of Fort Kochi to explore the old Jewish quarter, synagogue (the Jewish community here goes back to 1,000 AD), and Dutch Palace (Kochi Palace).

Day 6 & 7 - Mysore -  Mysore is an easy-going town with a pleasant climate; it’s well laid out, with wide streets and many gardens, making it perfect for wandering on foot. It’s also one of the best smelling places in India – it’s a major base for incense makers, so you’ll be surrounded by the aromas of sandalwood, jasmine, rose, and musk. A visit to Mysore isn't complete without a look around Mysore Palace. One of the most ornate palaces in India, its interior is a riot of colour, mosaics, and mirrors.  

Day 8 & 9 - Hampi - Hampi is an ancient temple town sitting on the banks of the Tungabhadra River. Once you’re settled in, head over to the architectural masterpiece of Vittala Temple. This 16th-century temple is the home of mandapas (pillared pavilions), a pool, a palace, and the popular stone chariot, which Hindu mythology says was Lord Vishnu’s pimped out ride. 

Day 10 & 11 - Goa - Brimming with Portuguese influences and famous for the sandy beaches lining its coast, Goa is a fascinating region in India's southwest. Perhaps relax on the beach, sip a cocktail at a local bar or go for a dinner out in town.
