Sleepy backwaters and lush tea plantations
Sleep on houseboats, drink from coconuts in fishing villages, and walk barefoot in the Andaman Islands
If the north of India is hectic and lively, the south is all about slowing down. From the lush green mountain slopes carpeted with tea, coffee and spice plantations to the Malabar coastline dotted with fishing villages and charming harbour towns, Kerala and southern India is the place to come to unwind.
This is where you stroll out in the morning and buy a fresh coconut to drink from a local vendor on the street. Or barter with a fisherman on the beach for something fresh from his catch, and then take it to a nearby restaurant to be cooked to your liking. Then put your feet up and drift through the backwaters on a private houseboat, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful region.
Next door is the state of Tamil Nadu with its myriad colourful temples and rock forts. From here it’s a short flight to the Andaman Islands, a remote group of tropical islands in the Bay of Bengal, close to Thailand, where you can stay in luxury forest huts and enjoy this uncrowded paradise.
The south of India is also a food lover’s paradise, with fiery curries and seafood to try in Kerala, and masala dosas and inventive vegetarian cuisine in Tamil Nadu.
