The Kerala backwaters lie inland from the Arabian sea in this peaceful, staggeringly beautiful state.
Indian life runs at a slower pace here. Liberal and easy going the region is popular with people who come to explore the twisting kayals, the jungle-shrouded backwater canals and lagoons that connect sheltered villages. Rice paddies and coconut groves line the banks whilst traditional houseboats, kettuvallum, cruise the still waters.
Visit secluded Coconut Lagoon Village, an enclave of ancient wooden bungalows, and stop in Cochin but mostly relax on the lazy waterways, eat delicious food and meet local villagers for a flavour of traditional life here.
