Kerala is quintessentially beautiful and is the key to a heart throbbing honeymoon. Though honeymoon and the Commonwealth Games have very little parity but the idea of having a first, second or even third honeymoon during the commencement of the Commonwealth Games is not that bad.
It is known that the nineteenth Commonwealth Games 2010 are to be held at New Delhi in the month of October 2010 but then a good amount of spying has revealed that many of the couples are planning to steal their spouses away to the territory of tranquility and the idea is to experience the bliss of each others uninterrupted company. True, honeymoon is the name given to such a wonderful travel experience.
Kerala is nearly a wonder land; This tropical paradise of waving palms and wide sandy beaches, sprawling backwaters and lush green vegetation is a perfect location for honeymoon. While on the one hand there are high mountains, deep-cut valleys on the other you can dive to the bottom of the sea. The picturesque waterfalls, the cajoling of the clouds, the green valleys altogether make Kerala a heavenly experience. The port city of Cochin has some of the most interesting site seeing spots like Vasco De Gama Square, Santa Cruz Basilica, St Francis Church to name a few.
Munnar is a misty hill station and perhaps is the best in the whole South India. The place exhibits vast natural splendor, the tea gardens, the high peaks, the lustrous lake and many more makes the place a perfect retreat for the honeymooning couples.
Periyar is another potential travel destination. The Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary and the Periyar Lake are the two major attractions of the place. The jungle has its own rules and redefines romance. The thrill of spotting animals like elephant, boar, deer and even the Indian Tiger is something to be felt.
Kumarakom is the most famous backwater of Kerala. The experience at a traditional houseboat on the Vembananda Lake is awesome. Cruising through the backwaters is something really romantic and even the backwater resorts at Alleppey are no less charismatic.
