We were driving from Goa to Kochi and picked on Kannur in Kerala, as a mid way stop over for the night. After some searching around, we discovered Amban Heritage Home. And boy, did we love it!
Amban Heritage Home was built in 1904. The rooms are small, very affordable, but very clean and so are the bathrooms. The property is run by the family and the food is excellent. We had some awesome prawns, fish, rice, chutneys, veggies etc, all true Kannur traditional style.
We changed our plans of driving to Kochi, Kerala, because of the terrible traffic on NH17, and decided of going to Kotagiri in Tamil Nadu instead. Suresh was kind enough to suggest an absolutely beautiful drive to Coonoor, something our mapping devices could never think of. Thank you Suresh!

How do you find such quiet places? This one is a gem.
Thanks Nisha! The credit goes to Shikha! She has the knack to find the most amazing places, and all this while we are still driving.
FAbulous! Are you on instagram?
Not in the ‘Untourists’ name, but getting one now.
Beautiful — with its traditional Kerala architecture. I bet it was nice and cool under that terracotta tiled roofs.
It was! Unfortunately we couldn’t spend much time here.
