Says Time about Kerala: "Kerala is one of India's most beautiful states. With spectacular beaches and lush backwaters, temples, and palaces, it's known as God's own country for good reason.. This year, Kerala is boosting motor-home tourism in India to inspire a new pas de deux of exploration and accommodation. The state's first caravan park, Karavan Meadows, opened in Vagamon, a scenic hill station…In the wake of the state's success with houseboat cruising, caravans are expected to follow suit with a similar promise of sustainable tourism.” Over 1,000 campers have already begun to traverse the land, a fresh and unique way to experience Kerala's beaches and verdant plantations.
