For several years, the South Indian state of Kerala has been advertising its manifold charms through the attractive slogan, God's Own Country.
The houseboats languidly plying in the backwaters, the Ayurveda spas, the tea plantations in Munnar, the elephants and tigers at Periyar National Park, the Hill Palace at Tripunithura, the sandy beaches in Varkala, the Kathakali dance shows and several other attractions have earned Kerala a top rank in the list of must visit South Indian destinations.

So it was not a big surprise when the travel guide Lonely Planet recently ranked Kerala as one of the best family travel destinations of 2014.
Here is an excerpt from Lonely Planet's description of Kerala:
"The intensity of travel in India could put you off taking a trip here en famille, but Kerala is a family-friendly version: more laid-back than other regions, greener, slower paced: even the food is less spicy and sweetened with coconut milk."
If you haven't yet made the time to soak in the many splendored charms of Kerala, contact Sonny at Air-Savings today to arrange a special travel package to God's Own Country.
