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. It’s a whole different experience – a whole different India – in itself.
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 the people and the culture that makes this wonderful part of the world precisely what it is. And there is no better way to experience it than with India Unbound’s tailor made tours of South India.
