ARRIVAL KOCHI AIRPORT

If you are tired of the daily grind, leave for Kochi located on the Malabar coast. Because… when you get tired, get a Malabar!


ALLEPPEY

To explore the backwaters of Kerala, there is not only houseboat . You can also embark on a canoe to explore the smaller channels and to meet the locals.

KOVALAM

Chill and palm trees; it’s time to relax !


KANYAKUMARI

Kanyakumari is the southernmost city in India. See you at the forefront of the world (at least in India) at the junction between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal.


 

RAMESHWARAM

The city of Rameshwaram is at the tip of Tamil Nadu. The main reason for visiting this city is the Ramanathaswamy Hindu temple, an importante place of pilgrimage !

MADURAI

Indian anecdote: if you see an Indian fast bend his head from left to right, this does not mean ‘no’ as one might think , but rather, it is a “YES” ! Do not be surprised, it’s cultural.

MADURAI – THEKKADY

“Any European who comes in India acquires patience if not a step and loses If he has.” – Indian Proverb

THEKKADY

Hello you !

MUNNAR

Did you know that the Tata Group (better known for cars and trucks) is also the proud owner of numerous brands such as Tetley Tea for example. Part of its production comes from the tea plantations of Munnar.

MUNNAR – OOTY

No time to get bored in India, even during a long drive: take time to observe the scenery and all the daily life scenes, it’s a permanent show !


OOTY

Perched at 2 250m above sea level , Ooty is historically a resort which hosted all the Madras government to cool the summer.

WAYANAD

In Wayanad, you can hop on a famous Ambassador. Some taxis continue to use them, so they have almost disappeared in the rest of India.

MYSORE

“Namaste” does not just say “hello”. It also means “goodbye”, “see you soon” or “good luck”… You can just use all the sauces !

HAMPI

Did you that Hampi is a popular for its climbing sites by climbers from around the world?

GOA

Goa is not a city but a state and the smallest of India! From north to south the beaches and atmosphere of each city are very different there. As you make your choice!
