At Kerala India Travel we previously started our Top 10 Reasons to Visit Kerala, which included: Diversity of Attractions, The Backwaters, Fantastic Homestays, Delicious Food and Beautiful Scenery. Continuing with the top 10, here are even more reasons to visit Kerala.

6) Keralan People – Keralan people are incredibly laid-back, friendly and welcoming. There’s much less hassle here than in other parts of India – the locals are more likely to give you a big smile and try to find out more about you, rather than try to sell you anything.

7) Easy to Get Around – In such a huge country, Kerala’s compact size makes things much easier for the traveller. Attractions are never too far apart (no 24 hour train journeys here!) and with such beautiful scenery to enjoy, the journey is part of the fun (especially on Kerala houseboats). It also helps that English is commonly spoken throughout the region. Even if you don’t fancy trying out the local buses and trains (although we do recommend them for the more adventurous traveller), you can hire your own car and driver inexpensively.

8 ) Perfect Introduction to India – Many people are worried about travelling in India, and have heard plenty of horror stories. Most of these just don’t apply in peaceful Kerala. It’s the ideal place to adjust to Indian life before moving on to other parts of the country. Kerala suits all types of travellers, from independent backpackers to those who would rather stay in a luxurious resort.

9) Weather – In this tropical climate, from November-April there is guaranteed sun and 28 degree celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit) temperatures. If you prefer cooler temperatures, then the Hill Stations aren’t far away. While the monsoon season sees higher temperatures and plenty of rainfall, it doesn’t rain all day, and you’ll find fewer tourists, lower prices, and even greener, more luscious scenery.

10) Ayurvedic Medicine – Kerala is the home of Ayurvedic Medicine, one of the oldest forms of traditional medicine in the world, which focuses on a holistic approach to wellbeing. Important Ayurvedic techniques include yoga, meditation, diet, massage and the application of oils. There are plenty of opportunities in Kerala to try Ayurvedic treatments, as well as to learn and practice yoga. Many hotels and resorts offer treatments in luxurious, peaceful settings.
