Kerala is a beautiful and relaxing destination, and the ideal duration for a family trip is 8 days and 7 nights. However, if you're short on time, a 4-day stay is enough to explore the best tourist spots in Kerala. Honeymooners can opt for a 5-day and 4-night package. The mountainous region of Kerala is home to the picturesque Munnar mountain station, while the backwaters form the heart of Kerala.
Staying on a houseboat and exploring the tranquil backwaters is one of the must-do activities in Kerala. Ayurveda is another highlight of Kerala, and it promotes harmony of body, mind and soul. If you decide to visit Windermere River House instead of Munnar, you can spend your days relaxing by the infinity pool overlooking the river, cycling along the road and taking a walk around the rubber plantation with the resident naturalist. In 5 days in Kerala, you can visit Fort Kochi (1 night), stay in a houseboat in the backwaters (2 nights) and visit either the mountainous inland region or the coastal beach (1 night).
Kerala's floating houses are made in a traditional style called “Kettuvallam”, with a thatched roof and a simple design. In addition to Ayurveda and backwaters, Kerala tourism also offers outdoor adventures such as paragliding. To make the most of your short time in Fort Kochi, start your day with a tuk tuk tour of Fort Kochi.
