Canada, Croatia and Geneva all announced that more Britons were travelling there. New York expects fewer of us and Egypt seems to be trying to deter us from holidaying in the land “where it all began.”

Frommer’s Top 12

Dec 2nd, 2009 | By

Each year, Frommer’s (the people who produce travel guidebooks and magazines) poll their readers to see what the destinations for 2010 would be. Primarily American vote for this so it does tend to reflect where Americans holiday but this year it includes the Scilly Isles. It doesn’t really say why they were voted for but just gives a potted tourism pitch. I’m not complaining but sometimes when surveys like this take place it would be nice to know what appeals to readers.

There are lots of reasons to visit the Scillies; the weather, the sandy beaches, the subtropical plants that grow there and, lets face it, the fact that you don’t have to change currency or speak another language. Frommer’s only warning is to book well ahead because accommodation is limited particulary in May when the gig races take place.

So what are the other selections by Frommer?

Treasured temples, palm fringed, pristine beaches, verdant vegetation, brightly coloured saris, happy herds of elephants… It could be a cliché, if it wasn’t all true, but it’s all here in India’s most southern state. Kerala has a purpose beyond petrol, extravagant cars and air conditioned shopping malls. It’s no wonder then, that Sir Paul McCartney hailed Kerala as being ‘truly God’s own country.’
