Cochin (also known as Kochi) is the great, old Keralan spice city. It consists of mainland Ernakulam, the islands of Willingdon, Bolgatty and Gundu in the harbor, Fort Cochin and Mattancheri on the southern peninsula and Vypeen Island north of Cochin. Because of the area's dense tropical forests, extensive ridges and ravines, it has been sheltered from invaders and the rest of India. This encouraged Keralites to welcome maritime contact, and therefore influence from the outside world. Cochin still has a small community of descendants from Jewish settlers who fled Palestine centuries ago. When the Portuguese arrived here during the Middle Ages, they were surprised to find Christianity already established along this coast. Traders from far-off lands have been coming to Kerala since ancient times in search of spices, sandalwood and ivory. Such long contact with people from overseas has resulted in the blending of various cultures and has given Keralites a cosmopolitan outlook. The present-day State of Kerala was created in 1956 as a result of combining Travancore, Cochin and Malabar. The latter was at one time part of Madras State, while both Travancore and Cochin were princely states ruled by a rajah. Unlike some rajahs in other parts of India who exploited their people and squandered the proceeds on high living, the rajahs of both Travancore and Cochin made efforts to provide basic services and education for their subjects. This resulted in the post-independence state being one of the most progressive, literate and highly educated of all the states in India.

Sri Lanka was once known as Serendib, origin of the word serendipity, an apt description for the pleasant surprises certain to pop up as you explore this gem of an island with everything to offer: white beaches, lush tropical forests, fragrant gardens of cinnamon and clove, and a long and equally spicy history. From Colombo, the capital, you can meet the gang at the elephant orphanage, take a trip to Kandy to visit a temple purported to house a tooth of the Buddha, or check out village life on a bicycle. Don’t forget to take some of the excellent tea home with you, a product for which the island became world famous under yet another name – Ceylon.

Kuala Lumpur combines cutting edge architecture with the charm of another era. Home to a efficient monorail system and the Petronas Towers, the world's tallest buildings at the time of their construction, this appears a very modern capital. But there is also another side. Colonial mansions, Moorish architecture and mosques present a more established image of the city. Take a trip to the top of Kuala Lumpur Tower for fantastic views. Explore the manicured spaces of Lake Gardens and take in Chinatown's street vendors, bright lights and fragrant cuisine.
