Kerala is a popular destination for international tourists, with more than 10% of the total number of visitors to the state coming from abroad. Of these, 25% are from the United Kingdom. Maharashtra tourism may not be as successful in attracting foreign tourists, according to the Economic Survey. South Korean tour operator Eunsook Park from Withus Tours noted that her compatriots are particularly interested in visiting the churches in Kochi.
Goa's beaches and Kerala's backwaters are more popular with foreign tourists than Tamil Nadu's temples. North India and Kerala's coast are often preferred over Tamil Nadu, which is often overlooked by international visitors. It is advisable to avoid visiting Kerala during the monsoon season, from June to August, as floods can make certain areas inaccessible and it rains almost daily. Despite this, Kerala is a beautiful destination and can be recommended to anyone who loves the outdoors or wants to experience a less intense version of India.
There are several local villages to visit if you want to learn more about traditional life in rural Kerala. Those who have visited Sri Lanka before have all said that Kerala is a great destination. Even if Ayurveda isn't your main reason for visiting, it is worth trying an Ayurvedic massage at least once. Kerala has become the first choice for tourists from all over the world visiting India after the pandemic.
Travel agents from around the world attending the eleventh edition of Kerala Travel Mart (KTM) noted that the state of South India offers a rich and attractive cultural experience. The Keravan Kerala caravan tourism project has also been met with great interest by domestic and foreign buyers at KTM.Kerala's openness to international visitors may also be due to many people in the state spending part of their adult lives outside India to earn money, which gives them a better understanding of different cultures.
