Normally when I read about new destinations which I have not heard before, I will do some research to get more informations. Instead of just me knowing it, I will post a summary of the informations into this website under What Is This Place.

As a start, while browsing AirArabia.com, I found a news of AirArabia will start flying from Sharjah to Coimbatore, India starting this October 1st. The twice weekly flights on every Monday and Friday will be increased to thrice weekly in November. Coimbatore, also known as Koneyammanputhhur, is Air Arabia’s eighth destination in India.

After going through the fact sheets and reading the history, I found that Coimbatore, India is one of such a great place to visit.
