COCONUTRESORTMUNNAR.COM VISIT PLACES OF INTEREST IN KERALA
INTRODUCTION God's own country Kerala, in south India, is often referred to as "God's Own Country" for its unspoiled tropical beauty and charm. This coastal state has a destination for everyone -- whether it's the beach, mountains,hills, adventure, wildlife, heritage or culture you're interested in. The pace of life is slow, making it the perfect place for a leisurely vacation mostly at anytime of the year. Don't miss out on these top places to visit in Kerala. Fort Kochi: Known as the "Gateway to Kerala", Kochi is an enchanting city that's had an eclectic influence over minds. Arabs, British, Dutch, Chinese, and Portuguese have all left their mark right there in Fort Kochi. The architecture and historical sites in Fort Kochi indeed attract most of the visitors to the area . Got children? Consider taking them to Wonder La Amusement Park in Kochi for a day as well. There are many resorts and hotels here to make a stay as well. C O C O N U T R E S O R TM U N N A R , C O M .
Muziris: If you're interested in history, extend your time in Kochi to visit the Muziris, situated about an hour to the direct north of the city. This multicultural district used to be the most important trading port in Kerala in the past, where business flourished for more than 1,000 years before it was severely damaged by flood. It's being developed by the Kerala government as a heritage project presently. Muziris extends to Kodungallur (where the astonishing and rather gruesome Kodungallur Bhagavathy temple festival takes place in late March or early April each year) and Paravoor. The place is full of old churches, synagogues, mosques and temples. India's first ever mosque, Cheraman Juma Masjid, was built there in 629 AD. Cochin Magic offers a full-day private Muziris Heritage Tour as well.
Kerala backwaters: One of the most tranquil and relaxing things you can do in Kerala is take a trip in a houseboat along the palm-fringed Kerala canals, known as the famous backwaters of Kerala. Freshly cooked Indian food and chilled beer (buy your own and bring it on the boat) make the experience much more enjoyable. You can even spend the night out in the middle of a lake. Stay a few nights at a homestay or resort along the backwaters too to make the trip more interesting. Pure Bliss! For the ultimate experience, don't miss seeing a sunset from Kakkathuruthu Island on Vembanad Lake, as featured by National Geographic lately. Most backwater trips usually start out from Alleppey.

Marari beach: If you're after an easily accessible and peaceful beach break in Kerala, picturesque Marari is just 30 minutes to the north of Alleppey. This placid fishing village has a long stretch of undeveloped beach and a diverse range of accommodations, from posh resorts to simple homestays. Some front the beach too.
