Anyone who is considering booking flights to India may like to know about one travel journalist’s experience in Kerala before deciding which region of the country to visit.

People who are thinking about jetting away to warmer climes and
want to book flights to India may need some help deciding which region of the country to visit.

The experiences of one travel journalist in Kerala, one of India’s southern states, could aid any decisions.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Michael Kerr explained that he had a relaxing break on a rice boat travelling around Kerala’s backwaters.

He was the only visitor on a trip he described as “bewildering”.

With between 700 and 1,000 boats carrying tourists in the region, he explained that he had not expected the trip to be a peaceful one.

However, Mr Kerr was pleasantly surprised by what he discovered: “I took in the sights and sounds of riverine life, delighted to find that the backwaters were not as spoilt as I had feared.”

Anyone who is travelling to the area and wants to ensure that they do not damage the natural environment may be pleased to learn that one tour operator in Kerala – Tourindia – has been nominated for an award for best practice by the World Travel and Tourism Council.
