Kerala, appropriately named `God’s Own Country,` is as far removed from the classic idea of India as can possibly be.  It is green and verdant with lush waterways over hung with coconut trees, and its topography is formed by the endless green of rolling tea estates, the gentle mountains of the Western Ghats and rich and verdant forests forming its national parks.  It is the land of spices and culinary delights especially for those who love fish and sea food, it is bound on one side by palm fringed beaches, it is the home of Ayurveda a 5000-year-old holistic system of medicine and of course, as is a constant throughout India, it is culturally rich with many outside influences including Dutch, Egyptian, Arab, Chinese and Europeans helping to form its unique identity.  However, despite all its many and varied attributes, what makes Kerala particularly special is its people who have a warmth and hospitality that can been seen in their smiles which reach into their eyes and warm the hearts of anyone who chooses to visit this destination.
