Vaikom is a self-sufficient town which can cater to most of the demands of the locals
and the basic needs of the discerning visitors. In and around the town, there are many
good hospitals. You can easily find several Banks, ATMs and foreign exchange centers

Garden fresh vegetables, varieties of banana, coconuts and paddy are in plenty. The

fishes. This water body is a main source of KARIMEEN (PEARL FISH) which has the
unique 'State Fish' status. Vaikom's coconut toddy, a mildly intoxicating local brew, is
a leisure drink popular with the native public, but the visitors are advised to experiment
the same only under the guidance of your lodging hosts.
