A wonderful net of channels that spread among the towns of Allepey, Kottayam and Kollam. A lot of people live there, you can see their everyday life from the boats that go up and down the backwaters.
Favorite thing: 'Uru' or dhow is a traditional boat built at yards in Beypore.These boats are immensely popular in the Gulf states like Oman and UAE.
trivandrum city celebrates onam with week long fairs,
cultural programmes at nishagandhi auditorium,boat race at karamana river,
food festivals and lighting of avenues with myriad electric bulbs
Favorite thing: Houses and other buildings along the canals look to be almost even with the water level, which means major flooding risk during the monsoon season.
Kerala is rich in natural beauty. The most famous being its backwaters. Rolling hills covered with tea estates and spice gardens can also be enjoyed.
Fondest memory: Palm trees- Kerala is covered with palm trees.
Favorite thing: Local people would come and sell their goods on the beaches. This man had a bundle of cloth to sell. Women would bring mango papaya and pineapples - delicious
Favorite thing: We stayed on the lovely beach just south of Kovalom for 10 days. The water was oh -so- warm the sea breeze made the nights very pleasant indeed.
