The best option for travel to Kozhikode is the Jan shatabdi express. The one I went on was the Malabar express. It has many stops and is usually a delayed train. The food served in the train is also of poor quality. The sights in the journey are pretty interesting. The long bridges and the rivers will capture your eyes.
It was a great experience and unforgettable! I went to for a business trip, and it was a unforgettable trip in my life ever. I went in Malabar express a/c coach and the service was too good. I reached Cochin early morning and had breakfast at railway station. I finished my business meeting in the afternoon and I went for sightseeing. Marine drive was the nice place to see at Cochin. Everyone have to visit once in a lifetime.
