South IndiaKerala

If neighbouring Tamil Nadu is known for its cultural finesse and Goa for its aromas, Kerala is best described as a glorious canvas of colours. Even the locals seem to sense it – a fact that is obvious in the rows and rows of coloured halwas that you can find in the rustic bakeries/sweet shops. The emerald colour of the backwaters and the vivid reds of the snake boats that race on them are just two more picks off the colour wheel. Delve deeper into the wheel and the pinks, the greens and yellows all scream out at you from stage plays of traditional folk dances. Truly, ‘God’s Own Country’ could be rebranded as ‘God’s Own Colour Wheel’.

Vembanad

Considered one of the largest lake eco-systems in India, the lake runs across many districts, each known for their snake boat races, houseboats and birders’ paradise.

Bekal

If you consider yourself an off-the-beaten-track adventurer, Bekal is the place for you to go with its walking trails, Fort and long stretches of beach that turn into a circus ground during the weekends.

Mararikulam

Miles of sandy beaches and impeccably lined coconut trees under clear, blue skies…that’s a holiday worth remembering

Kumarakom

The backwaters at Kumarakom lain out in intricate channels, and together with the village homes that skirt the banks, create a picturesque setting of a Fijian getaway.

Wayanad

This fantastically unspoilt and satisfyingly remote part of Kerala offers an epic combination of mountain scenery, rice paddies of ludicrous green, skinny betel nut trees, bamboo, red earth, spiky ginger fields, and rubber, cardamom and coffee plantations.

Thekkady

When you hear the name, think elephants near watering holes, and plantations that yield incredibly aromatic, exotic spices. The Periyar Lake in all its expanse is a beautiful vista to see and capture.

Munnar

Once a resort for the British Raj elite, the countless tea plantations that dot the hill station are only second in beauty to the endangered Nilgiri Tahr (mountain goat). With waterfalls and trails aplenty, you won’t want to leave any time soon.

Kochi

Most famed for the Chinese fishing nets, the harbour was once an integral stop along Asian trading routes. The Dutch lorded over the region for a while, their influences still evident in Jew Street and Fort Kochi.

Trivandrum

The heavy hand of the British still lingers in the glorious, Victorian style buildings that house museums and art galleries in this compact city, while the typical Kerala style temples and unique Kuthira Malika are must-sees on any itinerary.
