Answer by Sharmilli Priyadarsini:
Trivandrum is a place that is very well painted by nature that you have got a lot of tourist places to visit like the famous Padmanabhaswamy temple, Kovalam beach, Ponmudi hills, veli tourist village, Shangumugham beach, well maintained trivandrum zoo, Neyyar dam etc. Rainfall is prominent here with moderate climate.
In terms of transportation, roads are considerably good. Government busses are connecting the city very well. Auto rickshaws and taxis are little expensive, sometimes they demand double the charge, especially when you want to travel from the bus stand to kazhakootam(IT hub of trivandrum).
The cost of living is very less compared to the other cities. You do not have too many shopping malls to spend money lavishly. Accommodation is cheaper if you go for paying guests or hostels. Being a tourist spot, hotels are costly compared to the service provided. Overall, its a good place to save money.
There are very few foreign fast food outlets. You can find KFC restaurant in QRS mall, if you are a big fan of it. In the tourism centers, you can see dual price tags for food, one for the locals and the other for the tourists which is usually very costly. This place is a feast for non-vegetarian lovers and those who love keralite cuisine.
