Malabar sea port had trade links with Arabia

     Northern Kerala or commonly called Malabar covers the districts of Malappuram, Kozhikode (Calicut), Wayanad, Kannur and Kasargod. Though Malabar had a sea port a thousand years ago, and had links with Arabia it is emerging on the tourist map only now. A novel attraction in Wayanad has the so-called `tree houses', a new tourism concept. The city of Thalassery in Kannur district was the seat of the traditional martial art called Kalarippayattu. India's best circus artistes also come from this place. An ancient port, Kappad in Kozhikode is a beach resort today. Vasco-da-Gama landed here in 1498 AD. Legends have accorded a mystical touch to the history of Kappad. There are several Ayurvedic health parlours too here. It is just 14 km from Kozhikode town. The international airport for the region is located in Kozhikode. By rail and road, Kozhikode is connected to all major towns. Kozhikode to Kasargod, the northern tip, is 200 km. The nearest domestic airport for Kasargod is Mangalore in Karnataka (50 km). Kasargod is also well-connected to all major towns in Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
