For those who are new to Kerala, “On the southwestern coast of India, almost touching the tip of the peninsula, Kerala occupies the region known as the Malabar Coast. It is surrounded by the south Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Kerala is like a narrow strip of land lying between the Arabian Sea to the west and the hill ranges called Western Ghats. This geography defines Kerala’s main identity as a green, rain-rich state filled with inland water bodies.”
Some of the most popular Tourist spots in Kerala are
Kochi – A Metro Town with thousands of year old culture still persisting in everybody’s daily life. It has an International Airport.
Kumarakom – Backwater, Houseboat and Luxury Resorts
Alleppey – Beaches
