Kollam is one of the oldest port towns on the Malabar Coast, also known historically as
the "Spice Coast". The journals of the famous Italian traveler Marco Polo indicate that Kollam
was one of the leading trade capitals of the Old World. Today Kollam is known for cashew
processing and coir manufacturing.

The Ashtamudi Lake which is also known as the gateway to the backwaters of Kerala,
covers one third of Kollam. From here, a 130 kilometer long network of canals and lakes
come together to create one of nature finest spectacles. The boat trip between Allapuzha
and Kollam is the most enchanting route on the backwaters.
