I have been to Kerala so often for many reasons , Be it Leisure, Wellness, Luxury, or pilgrimage like I have been going to sabarimala for 17 years, but every time I visit Kerala, The experience is so unique and special that I love the warm hospitality that Kerala offers to everyone that even though I can’t talk Malayalam but I can understand thanks to all the love that the people in Kerala give and they go out of their comfort zone to help a person when in need which is what I liked the most.
Kerala is not just a state, but a place fit for gods and aptly known as God’s Own Country and the locals treat guests as God and I have met some amazing & Friendly People during my Journey in Kerala, I remember one such instance when I was travelling from Pathanamthitta to Ernakulam in night and I was waiting for bus at Pathanamthitta Bus stand , Unfortunately I couldn’t find any till midnight. When I spoke to the bus stand in charge about my situation and my train was scheduled early in the morning at Ernakulam. The bus stand in charge knowing my situation, He requested one of his friend who was heading to Ernakulam at the same to drop me and I was initially apprehensive to travel with a stranger in night, but knowing the hospitality in Kerala ,I took my chances and was glad that it was one of the best decisions I took to travel and reached Ernakulam on time to catch my train. I was surprised to see humanity still existed and the kind gesture of locals in Kerala really touched my heart forever and Truly known as Humans By Nature.
Being one of the top literate states in the country, one need not worry to explore Kerala thinking of getting lost as people will help if you are in need.
Special mention to Kerala culinary experience and it has one of the widespread offerings for veg and non veg.
In short, Kerala is one of my tourist destination places which I want to explore some more regions after the coronavirus pandemic ends and we are open to travel as before.
