Overall Guide : Myself Noufal Nazimudheen basicallyfrom kottayam. As per my opinion Kottayam is a good place for tourists to enjoy their vacations places like Kumarakom, vagamon etc... But as per the life experience in Kottayam budget level is increased and we cannot... more afford. I am not talking about Kottayam itself, the whole Kerala. In between that i like my hometown very well.
