Time out in Tropical Kerala
You’re on holiday so take some time out to soak up the laid-back lifestyle of the tropical south. Tranquil rural villages, deserted white sand beaches and the rich rainforest wildlife make Kerala the perfect haven from India’s claustrophobic cities. Beautiful countryside, rolling plains and lush valleys are home to elephants and other rich flora and fauna.
As you near the coast intricate networks of lakes, rivers and estuaries criss-cross the timeless landscape. Travel in style along the Kerala Backwaters on a traditional houseboat, meandering through the lush tropical vegetation and past sleepy villages where the pace of life has remained the same for hundreds of years.
Fascinating old towns such as Cochin, an intricate mixing of religions, and delicious food add to this potent brew.
