This selection of holiday ideas and suggestions covers Kerala and southern India. You’ll be likely to include one or two of the southern states of India: Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Goa and Karnataka.
Kerala is both striking and fascinating. The south and central parts have the well-known highlights but discover the north, and you’re in for a quieter and arguably more authentically Keralan experience. Karnataka is picking up the pace on its way to become one of India’s most vibrant destinations, with its large and cosmopolitan capital city, Bangalore, Hampi with its famous boulders, the coffee plantations of Coorg and the marvellous palaces of Mysore. The rural areas have plenty to tempt you away from the capital too.
Tamil Nadu is most frequently visited for its hundreds of distinctive temples that will take your breath away. With beach towns, hill stations and peaceful spiritual destinations within its borders, it’s a fantastic all-rounder. Goa’s reputation precedes itself as a top-notch beach destination in India and a perfect place to end a holiday.
Everything we do is tailor-made: these are just examples. Challenge us to create an excellent experience for you, and we'll make sure you get the edge on all aspects of your holiday.
