Situated between the waves of the Arabian Sea and the peaks of the Western Ghats, Kerala is a beautiful piece of land with mesmerizing waterways and scenic landscape. It is home to a variety of flora and fauna residing across diverse geographical settings. The small state with exotic wildlife, misty hill stations, sun kissed beaches, gorgeous backwaters and popular pilgrim centers has now become one of the most sought out tourist destinations in the country.
If you are a person looking for a holiday tour package to Kerala, here are a few things that you should keep in kind while making your reservations and itinerary. First of all, the climate has to be noted. Kerala is famous for the rainy season and the summer season it hosts – both of which are unique in their own ways. While the summers are hot and humid in most parts of Kerala, it is one of the best times to visit the hill stations in Kerala, especially Munnar. The city is famous of the beautiful tea gardens and the refreshing climate it offers during summers. However, if you are a person who loves rains, then Kerala is the place to be during monsoon. The whole state will be drenched in the sweet songs of rain and the fresh breeze along with it.
Along with the climate, you also need to check the type of package you are looking for. Kerala has something for everyone. For newlyweds, the state offers romantic beaches and chilling hill stations; for families, houseboat trips and elephant safari; for adventure lovers there is trekking and water sports; for pilgrims there are popular temples, churches, mosques and even Jewish synagogue; and for history lovers, there are several forts, and historical ruins. Hence, do a background research on the holiday package and find the one that best suits your interests.
However, if you are a traveler who does not like planning or are in Kerala just for a few days, then Cochin is the place to be. It is situated exactly in the middle of the state and is well connected with the rest of the world. Along with the rewards that the city life offers, Cochin (also known as Kochi) offers a refreshing time with the nature. It is not just conveniently placed near all the popular attractions the city itself is a major tourist spot of the state. So pack your bags to Cochin and the let the adventure begin.
