When it comes to enjoying a trip exploring the best travel destination to the south at cheaper rates it is always the best to look into the nature-friendly travel destinations. One of the main reasons for this is the availability of cheaper tour packages to the best nature destinations to the south as in at Kerala. Located to the southernmost tip Kerala is one of the most fascinating and charming travel destinations in India that is filled with the beauty and the richness of nature and greenery. It is mainly due to the popularity of the state as a fascinating destination filled with beaches that attracted me the most and thus planned my holiday trip to Kerala with Dream Holidays, a travel operator functioning in the land. The travel packages that they offered were both cheap and well planned or organised but as the travel package that I choose don’t include the travel expenses or the flight ticket from my home town to Kerala, I was all on my own while flying to the Kochi international airport. After a bit tiring long flight, I met the travel representative at the airport who briefed me with my travel plans and the destinations to explore for the day. It was just an escape trip to explore the beach and to enjoy the silence in the area so that I could get some alone time with myself. Plus exploring the beach destinations in Kerala at cheaper rates was an actual fun for nature lovers and solo travelers like me. After reaching the airport and meeting the travel representatives, my first preference was to check-in at the hotel, refresh and then take rest so after reaching the airport I checked- in at the hotel and took a small nap and woke up at 4 at the evening. As my first day organised was just meant for refreshing and relaxing I didn’t have much of a plan for the day but by evening I moved out of the hotel to take a walk around the place. I went walking through the marine drive just visited the Mangalavanam bird sanctuary enjoyed the view at the place and the magnificent sunset at the drive. One thing that I actually noticed while exploring the place was that most of the destinations in the area don’t even charge an entry fee or the entry charge is very cheap and affordable. It is mainly due to this reason that most nature-friendly travel packages organised to Kerala at affordable and cheap. The next day I started with my tour of the place and listed below are some of the best beach destinations in the land that I explored at cheap and affordable rates.
