A trip to South India would be incomplete without a stay on a house boat on Kerala’s serene and tranquil Backwaters. Most houseboats consist of one or two bedrooms and bathroom with a large seating and dining area. A team of four staff are on each houseboat – a captain, an engineer, a chef and a host.
During the day you can enjoy watching the world go by and witness life on gorgeous stretches of water. See the kids going to school by boat, fishermen, shepherds herding ducks, elephants bathing, market traders and much more.
Watch the sun go down and enjoy some of the most stunning sunsets.
There seems to be no end to the vast backwaters. If you like a drink you can take your own drink on board and have it served to you. The chef will prepare local specialities for breakfast, lunch and dinner and if you like seafood, then it is possible to choose it at local markets and the chef will prepare it for you.
This is a truly unique experience and is featured on our South India Escorted tour.
