Also known as Calicut, Kozhikode is located in northern Kerala. Kozhikode was the capital of an independent kingdom ruled by the Samoothiris (Zamorins) in the Middle Ages and later the capital of the erstwhile Malabar District under British rule. Arab merchants traded with the region as early as the 7th century.

The famous Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama landed at Kozhikode on 20 May 1498, thus opening a trade route between Europe and Malabar. The Britishers landed in 1615 (constructing a trading post in 1665), followed by the French in 1698 and the Dutch in 1752.

Kozhikode is situated in the idyllic setting of the serene Arabian Sea on the west and the proud peaks of the Wayanad hills on the east, this district with the serene beaches, lush green countryside, and historic sites, all blend together to make Kozhikode a prominent tourist destination.

The nearest airports are Karipur (Calicut International Airport) 27 km away and Kannur 93 km away, both being international airports.
