Seeking a serene holiday in India? Kerala is the place to visit

Travel blogger and founder of MzansiGirl, Meruschka Govender describes Kerala (south of India) as a chilled out, laid back and easy to travel destination.

Govender says Kerala is an ideal holiday spot for travel beginners or those that wish to visit India but without the hustle and bustle of cities such as Mumbai and New Delhi.

She also says it is an amazing cultural travel destination.

Kerala promotes itself as a spiritual and wellness travel destination.

Visit Calicut and experience traditional boat making, watch some kalaripayattu, an ancient martial art still practiced. Kerala is rich in the traditional performing arts says Govender.

Food lovers are recommended to try out Sadya. Govender says the Sadya is a banquet meal of rice, made up of twenty different accompaniments and desserts. She explains that it is the traditional meal of Kerala usually taken on celebratory occasions including marriages and is served on a plantain leaf.

If coconut is your thing, you'd be happy to know that there is a lot of coconut used in food and seafood dishes. Her favourite snack was banana chips fried in coconut oil.
