On her first trip to India Rachel wanted to explore both North and South India. On a month long visit to India, Rachel chose to explore a couple of weeks exploring the South.
This route is ideal for people wanting to spend just a couple of weeks in South India. It also makes sense for people who would like to experience a little bit of the North and South; you could start the trip in Delhi and make your way towards Mumbai, before travelling on this route.
The South is not as chaotic as the North yet is still visited by a lot of travelers. An interesting combination of beautiful beaches; wildlife and architecture makes South India a very interesting destination for travelers.

The city of dreams is home to Bollywood and almost twenty million immigrants.

A favourite amongst Indians and international travellers alike. Goa is famous for its beaches, amazing parties, cheap alcohol and laidback vibe. Goa doesn’t disappoint on the cultural front either. Once a Portuguese colony, Goa is an infusion of Portuguese and Indian culture with some really beautiful temples and churches.Yab Yum ResortsDay 6 - 8Hampi
Once the impenetrable capital of the Vijaynagara dynasty, Hampi today is popular for something else entirely. A city razed nearly to the ground, the ruins of Hampi are a UNESCO World Heritages site today. Known for its boulders and temples, Hampi is an idyllic, picturesque town to laze in.Thilak Home-stayDay 9 - 11Mysore

Cochin is the other end of the spectrum in comparison to Kozhikode, a tourist hub with beautiful churches and lovely cafes. Cochin is also home to the oldest church in India, St Francis Church, built by the Europeans.Lazar Home-stay
