Th Main Language spoken here is Malayalam, with English being second language to most (as with many indian states, they have their own language which which has some similarities but also use English to communicate).

This southern Indian state has started to grow in popularity with western tourists however you may still find locals being a little fascinated by your presence there and wanting to take a picture of your or with you (I got this alot, I'm very pale with very dark curly hair and have blue eyes).
