The Great Backwaters, Alleppey
Alleppey backwaters in Kerala, India is world renowned for its peaceful & serene beauty. Tourist from around the world visit Alleppey for this experience due to limited options for backwater tourism. One could just simply take a shared boat ride or pick a houseboat which are available in varied sizes and packages. I was on a family trip and we chose to have a houseboat to ourselves given we were about 8-12 in number. The boat comes with a skipper, helper and an experienced chef who would spoil you with delicious food during your trip. You can choose the timing for your trip and even stay over night in the backwaters. The trips goes around different scenic areas such as paddy fields and makes stops at shops where you could purchase essentials, toddy (rice alcohol) or seafood which the chef would prepare for you the way you like it.
