Things you should know about South India!!

India itself  is truly a sub-continent in itself.  

It is the only country wherein you can take a train ride of 15-16hrs to reach from one place to another but the time zones will be same. It will definitely be easy if I will segregate the northern part from South. The southern India is a kingdom in itself.

Scorching from the high Ghats to the beaches of Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal; the entire south India will show you a typical vividness.

In case if you are planning for a trip to South India; here are few things you should know about:
