It is often said that if one had at his disposal all the ingredients to create an ideal holiday spot he would most probably end up with kerala.

Kerala, the narrow fertile strip on the southwest coast of India is crammed between the Arabian sea and the Western Ghats. The Western Ghats with their dense forests and extensive ridges have sheltered Kerala from many mainland invaders and the long coastline has encouraged maritime contact with the outside world resulting in an intriguing blend of cultures. Stretching from some of the highest mountains of the Western Ghats to the lush coastal plains, Kerala captures a rich diversity of natural beauty. For many visitors Kerala is idyllic. Being India’s most densely populated region, it has a distinctive charm. It's attractive palm-lined beaches draw travellers to Kovalam and its quieter neighbouring resorts. The capital of Kerala is Trivandrum which has an airport.

Tucked away in the southwest corner of India, Kerala is a verdant wedge on the Malabar Coast that has attracted traders and visitors from time immemorial. The Phoenicians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Chinese, Jews and Europeans sought these shores for its spices, timber and elephants. Today tea, rubber and coffee flourish side by side with its legendary produce.

A tropical paradise, Kerala’s sun-kissed beaches, placid backwaters and swaying coconut palms are a permant invitation to the holidaymaker in search of leisure; so are its boat races, wildlife and Kathakali (that unique dance-drama form). Kerala offers the trips through peaceful lagoons and canals, hill stations, wildlife sanctuaries and complex cultural customs. High levels of education and health care have given Kerala an enviable reputation elsewhere in India.

The state’s sheltered location has allowed many distinctive customs, art forms and festivals to thrive. Kerala’s biggest cultural celebration is the harvest festival Onam when the state celebrates the golden age of mythical King Mahabali for four days in late August or early September. It includes elephant processions, cultural performances and boat races for the public and, feasts and floral decorations in homes.

In this entrancing state a mere strip of southwestern India hugged by the coast on one side, hills on another side. A fascinating voyage of discovery awaits the travellers. Splendid festivals with mysterious rituals full of colour, herds of elephants leading processions; exotic handcrafts and seafood preparations fresh from the Arabian sea; cosmopolitan cities where the past is always at hand and small towns where time has stood still; all these and more make kerala the ideal holiday destination far removed from the cares of the everyday world. One will discover that it is the simple things in life that matter....and that life is indeed beautiful.
