Somewhere around 2 hours North of Trivandrum on the west coast of India is a beautiful town called Alleppey. I took a train from Varkala where I was staying and went on a 2 day / 1 night houseboat excursion through the backwaters. The boat is private and you have 1 staff member and a chef and loads of outside lounging space to catch the sun. We opted for a room with a fan but you can pay more for a/c. The boat cruises around the stunning backwaters and rounds up the evening floating towards the sunset. It cost around £80 for the night and was fantastic – highly recommended!
