Kerala is a very picturesque state within India and is lined with sandy beaches, temples and a beautiful landscape. This is why it is called God’s own country. The Kerala backwaters are calm and serene places where you can relax and rejuvenate. Being home to ayurveda and yoga, Kerala is also full of boat houses. A Kerala holiday will leave you fresh and revitalized.

Planning your get away

Before you go online and book in haste, plan the places you would like to visit in Kerala. This way, you will have a plan as soon as you and or instead of that you can ask your agent to find a suitable holiday based on the kind of activities you would like to do. A beach holiday in Kerala or a cultural experience or even an Ayurveda experience can be arranged for you. The beautiful beaches on Kerala will leave you mesmerised. Its clean and blue waters will encourage you to relax and enjoy the sun during your beach holiday in Kerala. If you are looking for culture, try Kovalam. For a wildlife experience you must visit Periyar which boasts of a sanctuary for Asian elephants and the Periyar tiger reserve.

House boat experience

When you take a Kerala holiday you cannot return without spending a night in a house boat. Also known as the rice barge, they take night long journeys on rivers and past tiny villages. The accommodation on such boats is very basic but the food is traditional. The boat has a few cabins and a common sitting area. There is usually one or two staff on board who will cater to your every need. During the day you will get to see craftsmen and local markets that line the canal. Sailing takes place from sunrise to sunset. Later you can visit Munnar which is known for its open tea plantations and mountains. You will be greeted by exotic landscapes and beautiful and calm places. At Munnar you will get to visit the spice plantations.

A cultural experience

To have a culturally satisfying experience during your Kerala holiday you need to watch a performance by the Kathakali dancers of Kerala. They enact through dance and can be very captivating. The local theater in Cochin showcases the dances. The dancers can be seen dressed in colorful costumes with painted faces that they use so well to represent the characters in their story.
