Undoubtedly the biggest tourist attraction in the Kerala region is the house boat trip. For a little fortune you can get a 24-hour boat trip with a full time cook and captain on board. The size and comfort of the boat depends on the price you’re willing to pay. Our boat was by faaaaaar the smallest and slowest on the canals, but still a very cute one. We stayed the night in a small village and slept in the boat with a couple of thousand mosquitoes and a big thunderstorm.
