A long-awaited dream to travel the backwaters (God of Small Things country!) and the reality matched the dream. We travelled on a houseboat for three nights and enjoyed every minute.
We did wonder if our teenagers would get bored, but we all played cards, were entertained and fascinated at the river life.
We had a traditional boat with two a/c bedrooms, and a small upper deck. All good.
Most TA posts advise getting a boat on spec after talking and seeing and that is what we did. We went down to the wharves the night before and did our haggling and checking out -- it made the next morning less stressful. If you're considering it -- go for it!

First we stayed at Bella Homestay which was amazing, as Natascha and Beeju are so friendly! We were with five and went for boat shopping in the morning. Make sure you take the time if you decide to rent on spot, to compare several boats and check the hygiene and talk with the crew first to find out if they can speak English.

Kerala Backwaters was amazing. We spend 2 nights on the boat. It was nice, but as the boat was quit big, we couldn't enter the smaller parts of the waters. The big open water part was crowded with boats.

Our crew (Dream) didn't speak English that good, but we managed and they were kind and the chef cook prepared an amazing meal. Tell in advance if you don't want spicy food.

The bedroom was dark. Check to spray some holes as there might be cockroaches and bring a mosquito net, as there are many nasty mosquitos in the evening.

We felt that one overnight stay should be enough to enjoy Kerala Backwaters.

Anyone must definitly experience this natures wonder of keeping the rest of the land near by to lower level and all the river winding across at a wondefully elevated level with fresh water.
The canals are really something you should cruise thro' and expeirnce the culture an fthe living of people around these rivers and farm land.
You must also try the toddy, cuppa/ fish curry and the other sea food varieties very specific to Alleppey.
Highly reccoemnded for anyone to experience.
My first trip few years back I did not enjoy that much. But this trip during 2012 Dec, it was really a joyfull trip with 4 families and 4 kids with 4-5 hrs shikar boat trip lesisurley cruising.
