Rejuvenate and revel in Kerala’s charm

Dated-10 Mar 2013 

Kerala is well marketed tourism destination and a lot of overseas visitors fly down here either on a package tour or independently for two good reasons: enjoying nature’s bounty with a low price tag and Ayurveda (health) treat.

It is not a bad deal if you come on a 10-day tour or a 14-day tour with five days of rejuvenation therapy (with medicated oil massage by the trained young or veteran masseurs as you chose). This way you can enjoy both the world—a refreshing rest and sight-seeing. Little wonder this tiny state of Southern India has been stuck with the label tourism operators bestowed on it –God’s Own Country.

A pure sight-seeing would take you to the most attractive mix of Kerala tourism—hill stations, backwaters and coasts. From Kochi International airport, South India tourism’s professionals will take you around Kochi which European adventurers called “Queen of Arabian Sea.” Kochi is an expanding port-city throbbing with life.

Next day you will savour the hillride to Munnar which gives treats you to the lofty view of the heavens where mist-clad mountains kiss the clouds. From Munnar you go to Periyar where wildlife abounds and nightlife gives you an other-worldly feeling.

In the reverse direction next, you will come to Kumarakom, a beautiful locale set in the backwaters of Kottayam district. The onward trip will be in a boat. Boat is your home away from home. There are luxury boats that cater to all your whims and adventurous types with rugged exterior and lesser facilities than the luxury crafts. The bold young who want to enjoy the night floating in the delightful waterways would go in for the later though the luxury boats give you the warmth with the thrill of seeing the sparkling canals and lakes along the way to Alleppey in its cozy ambience. It’s safer too go with luxury boats with enjoying all its warmth.

Having romanced with the unique backwaters you will land in Kovalam to the south, the famous fortified natural beach, where thousands from the West and middle-east come to enjoy the sun and sand. Those revel in architecture and historical-religious places have amble scope to go about if you chose to.

There are scores of reputed Ayurveda firms along the way that specialize in various health rejuvenation methods. It will be a pleasure when South India Tour take you around and introduce to the ethnic culture and delicious local food which many travelers have showered praised on. Alternatively we also arrange on request living with locals who are registered with tourism department stay so that you will watch and enjoy the local way of making food, their lifestyle and culture in close proximity.

Making new friends will always prove a pleasant pastime that could come handy some time some day. We facilitate it.
