It’s possible you may have heard about the enchanted backwaters of Kerala and you plan on exploring the natural beauty in a boat. But how about we up the ante and get you into a snake boat race instead? You see, one of the other things Kerala is famous for is its festival extravaganzas involving elephants, elaborate religious rituals, lots of food, and...snake boat races.
Speaking of temples and festivals, one of the things that Tamil Nadu is famous for are its extraordinary collection of historic temples. You can hop around in luxury buses and take the usual group tour of the more famous temples, or you can choose to do it devotee-style - arduous experiences where the Gods reward you for the extreme hardships faced in reaching the temple. For example, you can drop in on the Six Houses of Lord Muruga located in six different places, one of which is up on a hill in Thiruthani (just outside Chennai) with 365 steps separating you from your reward.
