Anyone looking for a break that will appeal to the whole family should consider booking flights to Bangalore, near Kerala, one mother has said.

People who want an exotic holiday that will occupy the children  as well as themselves could do worse than booking flights to India and travelling on to Kerala, according to one travel journalist and mother.

Writing for the Guardian, Caroline Philips explained that she selected the south Indian state for a trip with her two daughters and was happy to find the children enjoyed it as much as she did.

Her trip took in areas in the north of the region, which are still considered off the beaten tourist track, she commented.

From staying in tree houses to visiting coffee plantations and having close encounters with some of the local wildlife, Ms Philips said her daughters gave the trip “ten out of ten”.

According to the official tourism site for the area, it is known as “God’s own country” and promises travellers “serene beaches, tranquil stretches of backwaters, lush hill stations and exotic wildlife”.
