Kochi and Thekkady – Two Irresistible Lures on Kerala Holidays

Travel buffs seeking lucrative deals on packages in India often take holidays in Kerala to explore the natures’ splendours and the historical glory of this state of South India.  Every nook and corner of Kerala flaunts a unique natural opulence. Kochi and Thekkady in particular, attract even the time pressed travellers on their holidays to Kerala with their ethereal beauty.

Sightseeing in Kochi is always recommended if you have interest in the colonial past of India as the port city features copious historical marvels. Start your city tour with a visit to the St. Francis Church – the oldest European establishment in India. Take a tour to the Fort, Dutch Palace and Jewish Synagogue while here. Apart from all these attractions this South Indian city boasts picturesque sights with sparkling blue water and exotic coco-palm fringed beaches with an amazing view of sunset as backdrop. A traditional Kathakali dance performance is usually included in standard travel packages to Kochi.

On the second day of your South India holidays, start your drive towards Thekkady in early morning to avoid the heat and road traffic. Tourists get an opportunity to witness the lush green rolling tea plantation, milky-white waterfalls and cascades and often get immersed in the fresh aroma of cardamom and coffee on this three hours drive. Sightseeing including a tour to the National Bird Sanctuary is one of the major parts of most holidays packages.
