If you wish you can select from the fresh catch and will be prepared for you in different styles to tantalize your taste buds.
Day 2 : Kochi Sightseeing After breakfast you will be taken for a guided sightseeing tour. The older parts of Fort kochi and Mattancherry have an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and also of an English country village grafted on the Tropical Malabar Coast – a radical contrast to the bright lights of mainland Ernakulam. You will be taken to the St. Francis Church constructed by Portuguese – said to be India’s oldest European built church, Mattancherry Palace where the astonishing murals depicting stories from Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Puranic legends are seen. Next stop is at Paradesi Jewish Synagogue, originally constructed in 1568. In the evening, you can watch a Kathakali performance, which is the renowned stage drama of Kerala. Overnight stay in the same hotel.
Day 3 : Kochi - Alappuzha - Ourland After breakfast, drive to Alappuzha – ‘the Venice of the East’ – check in at “Ourland Resort”, which is a beautiful Kerala style Resort situated in a very small island surrounded by backwaters. A singular characteristic of ‘Ourland’ is that it is located in a region called ‘Kuttanad’ known as the ‘Rice Bowl of Kerala’. This is also one of the few places in the world where farming is done below sea level.
Day 4 : Our Land – Houseboat After the breakfast, you can board a houseboat from the steps of the resort. Rest of the day is spent cruising through the canals of Alappuzha, where you get a chance to observe the lives of people living along the banks of the backwaters. Overnight stay is in the houseboat. Accommoda- tion is simple but equipped with modern en-suite facilities.
