"God's Own Country"

Kerala, India

Popularly referred to as 'God's Own Country', Kerala in southwestern India is arguably one of the most beautiful states in the country. Home to colourful festivals, traditions, attires and sumptuous food, the state is among the top tourist destinations in India. Lush with tropical vegetation, pristine beaches, serene backwaters and a variety of flora and fauna, Kerala is an ideal destination for honeymooners and families.

Located on the Malabar coast of Southern India, the state's capital is Kochi (also Cochin). Serviced by international and domestic airports, which are further connected by roads and rail, Kerala ensures that every corner of it is well accessible by travellers. The highlight of this state for many are the brackish lagoons called backwaters, notably in Alleppey, which are best enjoyed in houseboats. Also famous here are the practices of Ayurveda which have been hailed far and wide for their healing and cleansing attributes.

The traditional food, festivals and artforms are enticing to the beholder. Onam is the most important festival celebrated with participation from people within and outside the state. Kathakali, an essential traditional Indian dance form, is perhaps a significant testament to the colourful and graceful nature of the traditions of Kerala.

Kerala is also sprawling with wildlife sanctuaries, vast tea gardens and quaint hill stations. These places are flocked by tourists throughout the year and have played a significant part in Kerala being awarded by the National Geographic Traveller as one of the top 50 destinations in the world.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Hill station and long beaches within kilometers of each other. Rolling backwaters and amazing amalgamation of cuisine.

What's Not So Great?

Language could become a barrier if you are not a Malayali, though there are a lot of people who can converse in English or Hindi. The summers can be a pain in some parts of Kerala. While the hills would remain cool, the rest would be sweating through and through.

For Whom?

One would think that Kerala is only for families. Young adults can have a fantastic time in God's own country. If one is all about relaxing and enjoying some fresh sea breeze while getting a holistic Ayurveda spa treatment, this could be the destination. If there is an appetite for adventure, there is plenty of room there too.
