Kerala backwaters ‘a tropical paradise’

Travelling to the Kerala backwaters in southern India, you will find yourself in a southern paradise.

Solange Hando of notes that this region is an example of lush rural India - and that there is a wealth of things to explore and do away from the cities.

Recommending travelling down the lakes and rivers in a local houseboat, Mr Hando enthuses about the views during a trip, such as passing "traditional villages where time seems to stand still".

Meanwhile, there are many festivals held here too, so if you're keen to catch some lively local culture, it could be a good idea to time your visit with one of these. Festivities could include elephant parades, masked dances and temple celebrations.

You will also have the chance to try the local food, which is an important part of the area's culture and history, according to Those sensitive to spices could be best off sticking to their vegetarian dishes, which are milder than their meat-based meals.
