highlights and main attractions of kerala
The southern state of Kerala is a world away from the desert plains and fast-paced cities of northern India. The city of Kochi (formerly Cochin) is one of India’s most pleasant and attractive. Situated on the Malabar Coast and a major spice trading port on the Arabian Sea, Kochi has a real mix of cultures. The local Malayalam culture is at the heart of Kochi’s artistic scene with chances to watch the Kathakali dancers and marvel at their elaborate costumes and make-up.
A tropical paradise with beautiful beaches, relaxed backwaters, Ayurvedic treatments and a unique culture, even the cuisine of the south differs greatly from that of the north.
