Tamil Nadu

When it comes to the most visited state in India, Tamil Nadu tops the list as far as the number of foreign tourists are concerned. This alone should be an indication of the varied opportunities Tamil Nadu provides for enjoying a vacation. Some of the most iconic hill-stations like Ooty share space with some offbeat ones like Valparai. Beaches and backwaters adorn its eastern coast where houseboats and ayurvedic spas calm your nerves. The bio-diverse forests here are a success story that the conservationists boast about. From the tiger to the mighty elephant, a safari here is a stuff of dreams. Tamil Nadu's rich cultural heritage is showcased in its grand temples and various art forms. Don't miss a chance to witness graceful dancers performing the Bharatanatyam. A visit to a destination is never complete without a taste of its local cuisine and the food in Tamil Nadu is one of the most delicious you'll ever come across. From the tangy sambar to the fluffy idli, from the crispy dosato the flavourful upma - the dishes here are meant for both the body and the soul. Did you forget the filter coffee?
