Yes, I have been hearing about this town quite a while in last few years. From being a Tier- III city, it has grown to become third largest industrial town in Tamil Nadu. Hope you have been able to guess which city I am talking about … NO? Need more hints? OK -It’s the Textile hub of Tami Nadu and host a National Park and wildlife sanctuary named after India’s only women Prime Minister … I believe 90% of people have been able to identify it and 9% have googled the phrase and must be smiling on their smartness.. For the balance 1% who rely entirely on my blog to increase their IQ/EQ (polite way of saying they are lazy cats), city is “Coimbatore” and name of place was “Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park”
Moving on, over the years Coimbatore has seen phenomenal Growth in various sector like Textile , Ancillary units to Automobile , manufacturing related to agriculture product , Educational Institutes and now IT/ITES/BPO services have made their presence felt with MNC like TCS , Wipro , Capegemini opening up their center . Even a large chunk of my friends working in various companies have been adding this city to their trip while visiting Chennai. To facilitate them, I researched and try to pin down various good options available to stay for business and leisure purpose.
