Coimbatore is a major industrial city in India and the third largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu.. It is known as Manchestre of South India. Coimbatore is situated in the extreme west of Tamil Nadu, near the state of Kerala. Coimbatore has a population of over 1.5 million.
Coimbatore is known for its textile factories, engineering firms, automobile parts manufacturers, health care facilities, educational institutions, pleasant weather, hospitality and for its Kongu Tamil.
Coimbatore has a very pleasant, salubrious climate. Other towns in South India reach unbearable temperatures, while Coimbatore does not feel the heat as much. The temperature in this part of India is quite pleasant throughout the year. The best time to visit Coimbatore is between the months of July to February.
The city has a multi-cultural society, mostly of cosmopolitan nature. Its inhabitants are largely conservative and traditional, retaining their roots in their native villages. There are numerous temples in the city. The city has three major temples, Marudamalai, Perur and Karamadai.
Coimbatore cuisine is predominantly south Indian with rice as its base. Coimbatore flavours are generally fairly mild, with variations to suit the local palette. Most locals still retain their rural flavour, with many restaurants serving food over a banana leaf. North Indian, Chinese and continental cuisines are also available. Mysorepa (a sweet made from lentil flour and ghee), idly, dosa, Halwa (a sweet made of different ingredients like milk, wheat, rice) and vada-sambar and Biryani are popular among the locals. The recent influx of coffee shops and pizza shops has increased and serving as hangout locations for the youth.
The city has its own airport catering to most of the domestic destinations and few international destinations. A well connected broad gauge rail system is present along with a small section of meter gauge rail link as well. Buses seems to be a major transport option for the city dwellers. A bus ride in the bus is always recommended to the visitors...a word of caution it is not for the light hearted...but one gets to see life of coimbatore there.
The locals here are more personable than in northern India because they get less tourists. Everyone I met was really friendly.
This is a developing country so the roads are not well maintained. Although they have lanes and specific sides of the road to drive on these are never followed. There are people, cows, cars, rickshaws (3-wheeler taxis), and motorcycles all on the road at the same time and no one drives in lanes. There is a lot of honking, but it is "location awareness" not rudeness like here in the states. It is quick, successive honks to let other people know you are beside then, coming up from behind, moving over, whatever! but every driver does it pretty much constantly.
Despite all the organized chaos on the streets they are simple to cross once you get your guts up. Everyone just crosses whenever and all the drivers know this so they are never surprised to see people cross in front of them. If you look a bit intimidated there will likely be a local who will offer to help you get across :)
If you are going far I recommend the rickshaws. The locals will try to charge you a lot (which ends up being 2-3 dollars), but you can just tell them you will find someone else or walk. They might leave or they might try to bargain with you which can be really fun! The ride itself is a lot of fun too and a really convenient and cheap way to get around. Also the locals know how to get anywhere. If you try to rent a car you will have a hard time finding your way around and will likely be way to intimidated to go anywhere. I definitely recommend walking if you can or the rickshaw taxis.
