Itinerary
Be picked up from your Kochi accommodation, or the port, in the morning and drive to Alleppey and check-in to the houseboat. Then, at 12pm (noon), set out on an enchanting overnight backwater cruise in a traditional Kerala houseboat after lunch. While cruising in these floating luxury vessel, let your eyes enjoy the scenes in a Kerala countryside, and skim past Chinese fishing nets, bowed down paddy fields, local inhabitants engaged in making coir products, rustic homes and swaying coconut palms. All meals will be served on board. Overnight stay on the houseboat.

The next morning, after the breakfast, check-out of the houseboat and proceed back to the city in the chauffeur-driven car back to Kochi. We will drop you  back at your accommodations at approximately 11:30am after a memorable backwater trip.
