I live in Mangalore and I absolutely love this place. I’m 10 minutes away from the beach and I walk down pretty often. It is a hot and humid place and that’s probably the only drawback for someone not too used to it. It’s best to wear caps or sunglasses to avoid the heat but there’s plenty of fresh fruit juice stalls and coconuts here that will surely keep you hydrated. The breeze is always nice and crisp. It rains when it gets too hot but quickly dries up too. The people here are very friendly and welcoming and at any point you will not find yourself stranded.

I hope you do visit and if you wish to relocate, it’ll be great for your kids and you as education tops the list and there are way too many activities to stay busy!
