Kerala, the epitome of beauty located in the southern part of India, is historically known as Keralam and is located on the Malabar Coast. The unmatched beauty of the state has been a serious crowd puller in all the years that it has existed. The state got officially formed in the year 1956 when the Malayalee community asked for a different state. The borders of the state are touched with Karnataka and Tamilnadu, so the culture has been affected by both the south Indian states but where it excels beyond those two and any other Indian state for that matter, is the extravagant beauty of the state illuminated with the extremely photogenic landscapes, wonderful beaches, the dense forests and the eccentric waterfalls. However one other main reason for a boom in popularity of the state among the Indians and the international tourists is the presence of widely practiced Yoga and Ayurveda which has become the highlight of the state other than the aforementioned beautiful stuff to see there.
Kerala is among the most popular tourist destination of India. Millions of people from across the world visit Kerala every year. Apart from Leisure Kerala tour, the other most popular visit to Kerala is for Ayurveda. Ayurveda is being practiced in Kerala from ancient times and has gained popularity world over due to its healing powers. To help visitors, Kerala tour packages and Ayurveda packages are quite popular.
Kerala happens to be the most literate state in the country and people there are seriously into leading a sophisticated life. As a result, the population growth in the state is nicely controlled and the hygiene level is also on the higher side making it the perfect destination for spending some quality days in. Kerala is the 13th largest state when it comes to the population and the people for the most part are quite literate and there will be no issues in communicating with the locales as most of them are quite well versed in English.However all things aside, the best about Kerala are the culture and the traditions the state has inherited since the ancient times. Not only India, but the world is now taking in Kerala as one of the most brilliant tourist destinations in the world as the National Geographic Magazine has listed Kerala among the 10 paradises of the contemporary world which says a lot and this inclusion in the 2012 list had a boom in the tourist industry in Kerala. And soon after that many other such lists followed which had Kerala in the list of ’50 places to see before you die’ and in the same year, Kerala replaced the Taj Mahal in order to become the number one tourist spot in the country which took the country by surprise but well deserved place by Kerala.
Before the 80’s, Kerala was not quite popular as a tourist destination as it remained somehow unknown to most of the Indians but as the government of Kerala declared tourism as one of the most important industries in the year 1986, it was considered a very bold step but has turned out to be quite good as it caused an unexpected boom. The Tourism Department of Kerala worked hard towards it and as a result, the tourist inflow in the state increases and achieved a milestone in the year 2011 as it crossed the whopping 10 million mark. God’s own country this certainly is.
