Pune has long enjoyed a reputation as a center of culture and commerce, with many dynastic rulers making the town central to their regional plans in the centuries before the British Raj.

The first Indian city to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate among its citizens, Kottayam has as much of a reputation for its educational standards as for its massive rubber industry.

Spend the 24th (Tue) exploring at Kerala Backwaters. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Vembanad Lake, identify plant and animal life at Vagamon, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parumala Church, and don't miss a visit to Sree Vallabha Temple.
