Glorious beaches, jungles filled with wildlife, teeming backwaters and exotic costumed temple dramas – Kerala ticks just about every box. Its lush beauty is simply a complement to its rich traditions, legends and culture. The densely populated backwaters area forms a distinctive tropical environment, its tangled Canals, rivulets and lakes screened from the main transport routes of the coastal strip by a wall of intense greenery. A fleet of converted rice boats cruise these idyllic waterways, allowing you to explore the region in great comfort and style from towns such as Kollam and Alappuzha. The backwaters peter out as they approach Kerala’s biggest city, Kochi (formerly Cochin), a sprawling metropolis divided between modern Ernakulam on the mainland, and the historic district of Fort Cochin across the water. Lined by some of India’s oldest colonial buildings, the fort’s narrow streets are packed with visitors from all over the world, just as they were 400 years ago, when they formed the hub of India’s maritime spice trade.
