If you want to soak into a typical Kerala backwater settings, then Canoe tour is the best thing to opt for. Rather than spending whopping amount on a luxurious houseboat that won’t fit into narrow canal route, you can simply hop on to a humble yet reliable canoe and enjoy the lovely environs of Alleppey backwaters.
As you get rowed down the snaky backwater routes, your eyes will feast on green surroundings, with rich paddy fields and coconut trees lined up along the shores. There are many private and peaceful islands spread across Alleppey which can be explored in best way via canoe. Unlike houseboat, canoe cruise in Kerala will take you into the most interior areas of backwaters, away from the bustling routes.
You can criss-cross through green canals and on the way, get to watch locals going on with their business on the banks. Occasionally you can come across other local boats selling interesting items, artefacts or curios. You can even stop at village shops for tea or coffee and mingle with friendly countryside people.
Canoe boat is suitable for small group of people as well as safer for solo travellers. They are far cheaper than the houseboat cruise – making it the right choice when it comes to budget friendly travelling.
