Situated on the tropical Malabar Coast of southwestern India, Kerala is one of the most popular tourist spots in India. The National Geographic Traveler has named it on their list of the ten paradises of the world. There’s nothing that one can say about the backwaters and beaches that can do justice to the land. After all, it’s called God’s own country for a reason. It is, then, no surprise that Kerala tourism is booming throughout the year but the summer months really bring out the colours.
