The tea gardens of Munnar, the unique blend of Indo-Dutch cultures of Fort Kochi, the beautiful cliff beach in Varkala or the soothing backwaters of Alleppey. God's own country has more to offer than what you could imagine. But I have come across many people who have an idea that Kerala is quite a costly travel venture. So I want to take you for a ride to the backwaters with a budget much less expensive than most of our weekend food or booze bills.
Take a backwaters trip for a day in Canoe or Kayak
Alleppey is the land of Houseboats and backwaters. But to be honest the per day rent of Houseboats can create a huge hole in your pocket. What if I tell you that there is an option where you can enjoy the same view that you can get from the houseboats but at a much lesser price. That the canoe trips. Here they take you in boats inside the small creeks to get an insight of the beautiful life of the locals. This includes a walk and interaction with villagers and a meal in your host's house. Kayaking is similar to that of a Canoe but here, you need to sail your own boat. You will be experiencing the peace and tranquility of nature alone or with your partner. The only requirement to enjoy kayak ride is good swimming skills and some Kayaking skills.
