Best of 'Kaptivating Kerala' - Places you must not miss!!

A few years back I was fortunate enough to witness the charms of this alluring state. A few months back it was heart-rending to watch the devastation that it went through. But, Gods' own country, Kerala is back on its feet and is ready to do what it's best known for - Welcome Tourists!!


Kochi is a twin city. One part, the Fort Cochin is the cooler, traveler hub. The other part, the main city is full of hustle and bustle. They are interconnected by road as well as by water. The ferry charges only 4 bucks one way! And not only is it the cheapest way but the quickest as well as a more enthralling way to travel.
