Southern India

The tropical South offers a laid-back look at India. The fertile state of Kerala is surrounded by a profusion of natural landscapes; coconut-backed beaches, cool tea plantations, bright green paddy fields and lush waterways overflowing with bird life. Life has a slow pace here: drift upriver on a private houseboat, relax on the Malabar Coast, or soak up the architectural styles of Fort Cochin.

North of Kerala is the dry plateau of Mysore, surrounded by archaeological ruins, where scents of sandalwood and jasmine swirl round the lavish Hindu Maharaja's Palace. The state of Karnataka is home to amazing ancient cultural sites and untouched beaches, and at the southern tip of the Subcontinent is colourful Tamil Nadu, a sacred state brimming with ornate Hindu temples, ritualistic dance customs and traditional festivals.
