One of the perks of working from home is that people can work anywhere with an internet connection. Right from a bedroom to a quaint little homestay in a hill station, a workspace can literally travel places. People have slowly started to shift their work base to unwind and relax as they attend zoom meetings or meet deadlines. A change in the working environment has been shown to increase efficiency. Nowadays, it’s called workcation, where you can vacation yet work at the same time. So, here are a few workcation destinations in Kerala you should definitely check out.
Say hello to every beach bum’s favourite destination in Kerala! Kovalam in Trivandrum is home to lush coconut palms, idyllic beaches, great seafood, and site-seeing activities.

Kindly do not get drunk.
If you haven’t been to Vagamon yet, now is the time to do so.

The place is a large enough area as it accommodates great restaurants and places to chill, but small enough to feel like a home away from home.
Head over to Kerala’s backwaters for the perfect workcation. There’s a reason why this place is called the ‘Venice of the East’. What’s a workcation in Alleppy without really chilling in a houseboat passing through the serene backwaters?
