What we will do
  • From Kochi we take the coach towards Alappuzha, previously known as Alleppey, making a brief stop on the way.
  • We arrive in Alappuzha, situated in a dense network of leafy tropical canals, and board the boat for an idyllic journey along the so-called backwaters, rivers, lakes and canals that connect the coast to the southern interior part of Kochi. For centuries these canals have been a secure, efficient mode of transport for goods and people moving from the interior to the coastal towns.
  • We enjoy a delicious welcome drink and, in the comfort of our boat, we will sail along the glistening canals with abundant tropical vegetation, admiring the majestic forests, lagoons and the outskirts of the city dotted with palm trees.
  • We also see the village residents bathing and washing their clothes, and the livestock on the riverbank.
  • Having feasted our eyes on so much beauty, we will now also indulge our palates with a typical lunch served on board, before returning to the ship by coach.
