    On a typical rainy day in Kerala, birds sing to the pitter-patter of the rain, kids drench themselves in the blissful water and the aroma of coffee lingers in the atmosphere. The whole country waits to hear the news of rains in Kerala, because they know that monsoon is not far away. While the rain gods shower a lot of generosity in Kerala, there are pouring discounts on Kerala tour packages, flight tickets and hotels. An otherwise expensive destination, Kerala becomes unbelievably cheaper during the rainy season. Luxury hotels, houseboats and homestays are cheaper by almost 50% of their peak season price. Kerala is an all-year round destination, whether you plan your visit in monsoon, summer or winter.
