I saw some of the backwater houseboats when I was in Kerala – one with tourists lounging at the front with wine, and man at the back frantically bailing out water with a scooped-out lemonade bottle! There was an inspection of the boats while I was there – of 40 boats, 21 failed safety checks, none taken off the water. I love India, but let’s not pretend stuff like this doesn’t happen there.
Just spotted Pathin’s piece on the ‘Alleppey houseboats’ so did a quick google as we are always up for something different on the water.
Looked at this site…
No matter how I look at the site I get the impression that all the ‘packages’ are for just one day: or as they state it, ’__one Day & Night trip".__
Maybe ‘Pathin’ can advise?
