I have been looking forward to experience the houseboat stay for a long time as I have heard about this from my friends from Kerala. I saw many of the photos of the houseboats online and was wondering if I ever booked myself, will I get the same houseboat on the photo? Fortunately for me I have a friend who lives there and made the booking arrangements for me and accompany me to the houseboat. I was amazed! The houseboat is like a hotel on the water, a/c two-bedrooms, with all the amenities provided, except that you have your own chef on the boat! I am constantly asked what I want to eat and they will prepare for me. I just want to try the local food and the fish which the lake /river produces. I am told you'll never get this fresh water fish anywhere else. Everything is made to please my taste buds. I am more than satisfied with my one night stay and the food provided for the whole time of my stay is just great! We even have the family of my friend came and shared a dinner with us! The lake/river trip is so relaxing and enjoyable. You can see and hear so many kinds of birds and short stopovers to show you how the local villagers lived. I had an afternoon nap and woke up to a beautiful sunset! I've never seen the sun to be so bright red before! I slept well on the boat at night too! I plan to come back again with my whole family one day. I'll never forget this amazing day!
