South India Tours & Travel Packages at India Unbound

In South India time slows down; daily life moves at a more leisurely pace. It’s still India but it’s nothing like the north.

The hustle and bustle gives way to coconut-lined fields and beaches. Bullocks plough rice paddles and plantations produce staples like coffee and pepper.

South India is about first hand experiences. It’s about getting to know India and her people. The slower pace provides a better chance to understand the deeply religious yet open-minded people who live there and experience their traditional ways of living.

Witness the kaleidoscope of South Indian life mesh at the Meenakshi Temple in Madurai as temple elephants, pilgrims, merchants and wedding parties come together inside the temple. Why not sit down to discuss matters large and small with an accommodating host at a homestay and even step inside their kitchens to learn the secrets of South Indian food?

Dance your tastebuds around a banana leaf thali and sample a masala dosa in Mysore. Be invited into one of the formerly glorious mansions built by wealthy teak merchants in the 19th century in Chettinad and explore the boulder- strewn countryside of Hampi – the ancient capital of the 14th century Vijayanagar and one of the world’s great archaeological sites; truly one of the must see places to visit in South India.
