Kerala one of the smallest states in India but one of the state that attracts many tourists not only from India but from all over the world. The world class ayurvedic medicines, their own cultures and festivals, the pine and the coconut trees, all of them contribute for making kerala an attractive tourist spot. It is a worth seeing tourist spot where once can value their money that they spend going there.Travel Destinations
