South India Travel Package¬†– Physically and culturally, South India is vastly different from the North, but no less vibrant and colorful. Its towns and cities are dotted with architectural masterpieces, its sinuous coastline enclosing fine, open beaches, and its hills possess some of the most picturesque retreats. Though a complete tour that catches the essence of South India would be ideal, you can traverse the distance between Bangalore, Ooty and Mysore if you’re short of time to catch a glimpse of the region.
