Cochin: Cochin is known as the Venice of the East, a fascinating port town that tumbles from mainland Kerala over a maze of islands and peninsulas connected by a network of bridges and ferries. A colorful blend of influences, Cochin formed the heart of the Indian spice trade for centuries, absorbing and being shaped by the many nations that came together on its shores. From giant Chinese fishing nets to Dutch palaces and Portuguese churches, a 400-year-old synagogue and the white sails of Arabic dhows, Cochin offers a mesmerizing blend of traditions, histories and architecture.

Munnar: The picturesque little town of Munnar nestled amidst acres of sprawling tea estates and verdant forests. Its name meaning “three rivers” stems from its location at the confluence of three mountain streams. Besides tea, Munnar is also renowned for its spices like cardamom and pepper, and the local infusions of tea and spices offer a warm respite from the chilly mountaintop climate.

Kumarakom is a delight for the senses. With the backwaters mirroring the blue skies and green palms overhead, few places can offer the quiet calm, tranquility and serendipity of Kumarakom making it a haven for those who want to get away from the urban hustle and bustle. Rich in tropical fruit and vegetation, bananas, mangoes, coconuts, and pineapples jostle for space with brightly colored hibiscus and bougainvillea which spill over into the backwaters.
