Becoming the only Indian state on CNN’s list of Top Destinations For 2019, Kerala has bounced back beautifully after floods.
Kerala is one of the 19 places shortlisted by CNN this year for travellers to visit in 2019. The magazine stated that living up to its name — ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala has everything a traveller seeks: sun, sea, sand, culture, houseboats, good food and wildlife.
With its amazing natural landscapes like palm trees and stretched out backwaters, this state has something for everyone.
Most of the destinations on the CNN’s top destinations list are the places that have rebounded to normalcy after suffering from destructive natural disasters. Kerala also suffered serious damage due to floods in 2018, but it has rebuilt itself well.
The other places on the list are Christchurch (in New Zealand), Egypt, Fukuoka (in Japan), Ghana, Grand Canyon (in the United States), Hawaii Island (in the United States), The Hebrides (in Scotland), Jaffa (in Israel), Liechtenstein, Lima (in Peru), New York City, Normandy (in France), Oaxaca (in Mexico), Oman, Plovdiv (in Bulgaria), St. Barts (in French West Indies), Space Coast (in Florida, United States), Weimar (in Germany).
