  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.

Kerala Backwater Kerala Backwater Kerala Backwater

Bewitching and green, the backwaters of Kerala form the lifeblood of this coastal state that glitters like a raw emerald under the warm sun.

An extensive network of 44 rivers, blue lagoons, streams, lakes and canals that criss-cross, meet and branch out like nerves throughout Kerala, form the exotic backwaters. Sail to delightful spots where salty seas meet fresh river waters and give birth to and sustain rare marine life.

The backwaters of Kerala sparkle and glow with purity, simplicity and raw natural beauty that allures you into narrow water canals fringed with thick leafy shrubs, dense green undergrowth and clusters of coconut palms.

Hire a houseboat and set out on an exploratory cruise that takes you past remote villages clustered around banana and coconut trees, sail along acres of half submerged paddy fields glowing in the warm sun, see bunches of water lilies float past and listen to the cormorants and water birds as you feast your eyes on the unmatched beauty of the backwaters of Kerala, South India.
