Tour Highlights:

  • Float down the serene backwaters of Kerala in a houseboat
  • Watch an intriguing Kathakali cultural dance performance unique to South India
  • Marvel at the majestic Chinese fishing nets
  • Indulge in a complete and rejuvenating Ayurveda experience

Kochi is home to the famed backwaters of Kerala, aptly nicknamed 'the Venice of South Asia', due to its labyrinth of meandering streams, lakes, rivers, and lagoons. Here, an interesting mix of Portuguese, Dutch and English influences is manifest in Jewish synagogues, historical churches and buildings, as well as giant fishing nets said to originate from China. At Alleppey, alight for a cruise through the serene backwaters of Kerala in a houseboat. Enjoy a special lunch on board and soak in the charming village life along the banks as you cruise along in style.
