New year in Kochi

You have had an eventful 2016. And you are still not sure about where to head out to unwind and welcome the New Year. This list is for you

1) Head for the hills

It is 121 years since Fawcett discovered Edakkal Caves

The misty magical hills beckon. Drive your worries away by going a step closer to nature. Wayanad offers you – your friends and family – plenty of options to explore together. If you are with your friends, go for a trek to Banasura hills. If you are with your family go to Edakkal caves. Go on a safari at the Muthanga Wildlife reserve. Or just drive around. You will enjoy the peace and quiet. You will still be able to make last minute reservations at a hotel or a homestay.

2) By the beach

5 reasons for opting to spend a weekend in Varkala

You can go for a party, and yet be close to the cliffs and the beach at Varkala. And that precisely is the reason why more people are opting to hit this tourist place over Kovalam and Fort Kochi. The restaurants on the cliff will satisfy the party-goer and those who need tranquility, walk down to the beach.

3) A slice of culture

When gods and goddesses dance in Malabar

Kerala is the land where Gods walk amidst you during the day and transform at nights. Head to Kannur - take part in a 'Theyyam' performance at one of the temples. If you are an art buff - the Kochi Muziris Biennale would be the place to be.

4) A cruise

Poovar

Go for a ride on the peaceful backwaters off Poovar near Thiruvananthapuram. Most of the hotels host New Year bashes that you can be part off.

5) Into the wild

Parambikulam

If you have seen it all and done it all and would like to be with yourself and nature around check into one of the hotels near Parambikulam Wildlife sanctuary.

And trust us, you will not regret the decision.
