Open the door to the sultry soul of India. The southern part of the peninsula, South India melts into the Arabian Sea in the west; the east coast gives way to the Bay of Bengal and the tip of southern India tapers into the Indian Ocean.
A kaleidoscope of culture, heritage and romance, South India is an idyllic holiday destination in India. Goa, with its pristine beaches and party lifestyle, is the go-to place to rejuvenate oneself. Kerala, with its romantic backwaters, sinuous lagoons, palm-lined beaches, Ayurvedic spas and tea plantations stretching out to the horizon, is the epitome of beauty. Karnataka is a behemoth of heritage, while Tamil Nadu is the cultural headquarters of South India. A trip to South India cannot be complete without some deep sea diving and snorkelling in the waters off the coast of Andaman Islands. So what are you waiting for?

Travel to South India
Boasting about 4,500 miles of coastline, holidays to South India are an exquisite vision of white sand beaches, languid backwaters, azure seas, lagoons and lush greenery. South India can captivate you with the sun kissed golden beaches of Goa to the lush tea terraces of the Nilgiri Hills.
Discover all the colours of the rainbow at the biodiversity hotspot of India. From walking through the thick, green Western Ghats to exploring the glittering temple complexes of Tamil Nadu, South India is overflowing with culture and colour. You can enjoy world-class snorkelling and deep sea diving off the coast of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in turquoise waters. The highlight of trip to South India is of course Kerala, nicknamed ’God’s Own Country’. Dotted with sinuous backwaters and lagoons, lush green tea plantations, pristine white sand beaches lined with verdant palm trees, hill stations, and Ayurvedic massage spas, Kerala is the crown jewel of the dazzling and colourful South.
Travelling through South India is a unique and incomparable experience. Whilst in the southern states of India, visit Kerala and cruise on a romantic houseboat through the backwaters. Visit the state of Tamil Nadu which is famous for its Dravidian-style Hindu temples and mouth-watering seafood. Silk fabrics here are of the highest quality and the bright colours lines the streets.

The forlorn ruins of Vijaynagara Empire dotted with unearthly landscape at Hampi will leave you spellbound.
