Travelers and nature lovers across the world have a unanimous opinion that God might have carefully curated Kerala, a small State in the southernmost tip of India, with all his special craftsmen to assist, because a piece of land with all the elements of nature blended in the perfect proportion is very rare. This could probably be the reason why Kerala is called God’s Own Country.
The backwaters, beaches, coconut lagoons, hill stations, rubber, spices, and coffee plantations and above all nature’s secret healing therapy – Ayurveda – have put Kerala on top of the list of places to visit for most avid travelers. Tourism in Kerala has seen a huge growth in the last 6-7 years that has in turn helped open up many unexplored places in Kerala to tourists.
The recognition and acclaim the small State has received are also many. Just after a small island in Alappuzha called Kakkathuruthu was listed by National Geographic as one of the best destinations to watch the sun set, the State has also been recently listed as a ‘Destination To Watch’ in 2017 by Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), UK’s largest travel agents and tour operators. Kerala has been ranked eighth in ABTA’s Travel Trends Report, 2017.
