Alleppey and Kumarakom provide one with the unique opportunity to view typical Kerala life style that remains unchanged for centuries now. While Alleppey rightfully stakes claim to its famous nickname \'Venice of the East \' with its network of inland canals, houseboat cruises along the tranquil backwaters of Kumarakom enchant with the prospect of viewing Kerala, at work and at play. Cruise the backwaters and overnight on your own private houseboat.
