  1. Yes... there is a bypass.. to avoid touching edappal town but those roads are narrow and if any procession or something like that then he will be stuck there since he is planning to start from Ekm in the afternoon.

    Also Calicut he isnt touching the city at all. its all going through by bypass and since a new bypass has opened he doesnt have to touch west hill, the new bypass reaches near to Pookad temple and so another 1/2 hr saved due to traffic jams etc..

    Maps may be right... I havent used one till now.

    like you told me... shoranur and palakkad on maps is wrong.... by road you dont touch any of these places.

    if you have time, do visit stmary's island, 6 kms off malpe town in the arabian sea. malpe is approx 60 kms ahead of mangalore. towards goa. i had been there recently and it was an unforgettable experience!!

    Thomman, A suggestion. Starting at noon from Cochin means you will be reaching Manglore by 8 PM. If you have already booked the hotel then Why not start little early since the NH is notorious for heavy trucks and if you are travelling with family first time in that route then reaching Manglore little early will be advisable.

    Manager is not granting leave? Then Thomman might be giving lift to manager in his Punto. So manager don't want punto to leave him by granting leave to Thomman.;)

    Yes visit st-mary's island but note.. dont take the ferry ride to the island , you will invariably go via the wharf to get to a ferry which will also take you to that island..
    These buggers dont let you land on the beach.. it will simply be a round trip ride that's all..

    Instead go to the beach (its just about a km from the wharf) there you will find smaller boats and they charge you about 150rs and they will drop you off at the island and give you 40mins to play around and come back for the return trip.
    Note this point.
    Ferry is a waste
