India & Sri Lanka

A night or two on Kerala’s backwaters is an unforgettable experience. Relax and watch the world go by from the deck of your houseboat, as you slowly meander through narrow canals and large lakes, past dense vegetation and open paddy fields. Alternatively base yourself on land and hole up for a couple of nights in a peaceful waterfront backwater resort. Either way, the backwaters are a perfect spot for rest and relaxation and for providing a unique snapshot of rural Keralan life.
