Win a Seven-Day Adventure to the Backwaters and Beaches of Kerala

Win a Seven-Day Adventure to the Backwaters and Beaches of Kerala


In celebration of our Nostalgia issue, we’ve teamed up with
to send one reader and a friend/ flame/ family member on
a seven-day soiree to tropical Kerala.

Known for its palm-lined sands and intricately carved temples,
Kerala, aka “God’s Own Country”, possesses a bewitching majesty all
of its own. Get lost in the flavours of spicy Cochin, revel in the
plantation-clad rolls of Thekkady, discover the age-old traditions
of Alleppey with a houseboat stay and soak up the relaxed vibes of
Kumarakom, the “Venice of the East”.

We’re covering international flights (from the UK), premium
accommodation and plenty of local experiences. If that wasn’t
enough, you’ll also be able to customise your adventure by adding
one of three experience packs to your itinerary. Choose between an
Anglo-Indian cooking lesson in the “foodie” pack, cycling the
plains of Tamil Nadu in the “active” pack or discovering
Kumarakom’s unique culture with a village visit in the “authentic”

For inspiration, follow food, lifestyle and wellness author
Jasmine Hemsley as she maps out her Keralan adventure on @suitcase – then make it your own.
