Kerala is packed full of wonderful sites.
With holidaymakers increasingly embarking on linear journeys that start and end in different destinations, a tour of Kerala in India could make for the most perfect of summer holidays.
According to Lonely Planet’s Tom Hall, so-called “linear journeys” are taking off, particularly among the over 50s, who are particularly attracted to destinations in Asia.
While the Silk Road and Trans-Siberian railway might be the most famous examples of these kind of trips, a tour of Kerala could be every bit as magical.
Situated on India’s Malabar Coast, the region boasts rolling green hills, rice paddies, tea plantations, lakes and waterways, as well as more than a few exquisite beaches.
With Southall Travel’s incredible India tours, you’ll be able to properly explore tea and spice country, taking in sites such as Cochin, the oldest European settlement in all of India, and the Dutch Palace, with its impressive murals.
Other highlights include a stay amid the Cardamom plantations at Munnar, wildlife spotting on Lake Perivar and an enjoyable sojourn on the sandy beaches of Kovalam.
