Houseboats, homestays and tea plantations – what’s not to love about India’s southerm state?


SEE Munnar’s hill town is famous for its manicured tea gardens and cardamom plantations. Make a trek to either one for the freshest tea, and pop a cardamom or two in your drink for the ultimate taste of India. Or visit the historic harbour city of Kochi for its stunning palaces and early colonial architecture.

DO Kerala’s backwaters simply beckon a houseboat sojourn. Cruises are widely available. Journey along palm-fringed canals while enjoying freshly cooked Indian food on board. Bliss!

SHOP Kerala is the land of spices. And Ayurvedic. There are many shops that sell pre-packaged Ayurvedic spices that can heal, beautify and invigorate; but there are also spices you can simply bring home to make tasty cuisines.

STAY Three cottage suites and an impeccable service make Old Harbour Hotel a top pick among travellers. This 300-year-old colonial building has rooms with high ceilings, huge windows and deep, comfy beds. Courtyard fountain and lily ponds complete the dreamy landscape.

Royal Brunei Airlines flies Kuala Lumpur double daily for connections to Kerala.
