Dental tourism could save you big money
What is dental tourism?
Dental tourism, or dental vacation, is a concept in which an individual seeks dental care in another country (e.g., India, Canada, or Mexico) because of the low cost of care in that locale. Tour packages are available to accommodate international tourists who are looking for good dental care at a lower cost whilst vacationing in these countries. This vacation trend is becoming more popular.

The church has a tradition and history extending over hundreds of years and is situated atop a small hillock at the centre of Ramapuram in Kottayam district,Kerala state. St Augustine’s Forane Church has been the living symbol of the religious and cultural life of the Christians of this area.

These four temples are thronged by Hindu devotees during the holy month of Karkitakam (July – August).
Bharananganam Church & Saint Alphonsa’s tomb
Saint Alphonsa lived a simple life and was recognized as a saintly person. Even at a young age she showed a great zeal for suffering and used to pray fervently and longed for sacrifice and fasting when possible. She believed that she must endure all things that tests her will and offer them to the Lord. It is said that in spite of her painful diseases, she was cheerful to the last. It was her students who established the shrine of Saint Alphonsa. After her death, they began visiting her tomb and offering prayers.
As they continued, they started receiving favors. Ever since, her tomb has been a centre of pilgrimage and innumerable miracles. The first officially confirmed miracle was that of a disabled child miraculously cured of his ailment and his limbs restored, due to prayers at the altar of Sister Alphonsa’s shrine. The miracle was acknowledged in 1985 and the beatification of Sister Alphonsa was proclaimed by Pope John Paul II, during his visit to India in 1986.

Kerala named among world’s top 10 holiday destinations
Travel guides publisher Lonely Planet has named Kerala among the world’s 10 best destinations for taking the family on a holiday in 2014.
The Lonely Planet’s award for the best family destination was bestowed on ‘God’s Own Country’ at the World Travel Mart in London November 4th 2013. This is the world’s leading travel trade event attended by industry representatives from across the globe.
Kerala joined the likes of New York City, Denmark, Prague, Iceland, Italy and Hawaii in being described by the travel expert as a child-friendly destination ideal for the family.
“The intensity of travel in India could put you off taking a trip here with family, but Kerala is a family-friendly version, more laid back than other regions, greener, slower paced. There are also lots of national parks for elephant spotting, palm fringed beaches and boat trips along the lush canals of the backwaters,” it said.
Wedged between the Western Ghats on the East and the Arabian Sea on the West, the narrow strip of land known as Kerala is a destination of a lifetime.
The timeless beauty of the palm fringed beaches of Kovalam and Varkala, the majesty of the undulating hills of Munnar and Vagamon, the serenity of the pristine backwaters of Kumarakom & Kuttanad and the enchanting woods and forests of Thekkady and Silent Valley will have you bowled over.
That such a small terrain can hold diverse geographical features and cultures is a wonder in itself.
