Backwaters are the best attraction for the tourism in Kerala. Kerala backwaters are actually a chain of lakes lying parallel at the western coast of Kerala. A tour in backwater cannot be complete without the houseboats. Kerala houseboats are considered to be the most exotic aspect to explore the beauties of this state. Allepey is considered as the citadel of these houseboats. Outstanding ambience, luxurious amenities, fresh sea foods cooked in Kuttanad style, attractive options for fishing etc make the stay in the houseboats a divine experience. The Kerala houseboats are actually the floating hotels which can offer all the luxury and facilities of a standard five star hotel with the natural scenic beauty as an added extra facility. However, the cost of staying in Kerala houseboats is a little too high, but the expense does not go in vain.
