Day 2: Rice Boat Excursion
Early morning of the second day and it is time for guests to now move towards the heavenly destination of Alleppey. Breakfast is served onboard and the early morning sunlight and the bountiful nature of Kerala together make the experience truly memorable. If you have never seen the backwaters of Kerala, you just may skip a heartbeat. And if you have already been here, we bet, the experience could never have been this special... And if this was not enough, to surprise you all the more, the cruiser parks itself near Kanjippadam and all guests are ushered to rice boats to explore the narrower sections of the backwaters from close quarters. To taste a slice of the local ways of life, guests are then taken to a traditional Kerala home commonly known as 'Tharavad'. Besides this, a guided tour to the half-statue of Lord Buddha at Karmadi is also organized for the guests. Lunch is served onboard the Motor Vessel and the picture perfect locales of the backwaters and the local sights and sounds make the already delectable experience a fondly remembered one too.
