One of the good things you will enjoy in your South Indian holiday package is the tropical climate of the region. You can expect heavy seasonal rainfall like 2000mm or above which in itself is a nice experience but only if the rains do not continue for prolonged periods when it starts to take a toll on overall experience. The sea breeze at nights are cool and covers up well for the hot temperatures of the day. Winters on the other hand are quite warm in comparison to the north Indian winters and thus, in our opinion the best time to visit south India are the winter months but make sure to get done with the bookings earlier in order to get the best south Indian tour package.
