    Nitish Bhatt Says

    Kerala Backwaters is one of the most stunning place I’ve had the pleasure of seeing. Just hire a houseboat and take in aroma of the nature around you. The Lake is huge and there are many different routes which you can explore. Would suggest going forth between Kumarakom and Alleppey which will cover most of the lake. For a better experience hop onto the canoes and sail through the narrow canals which otherwise the huge houseboats are unable to get through. We booked our Houseboat through Experience Kerala and they provided us a clean and well maintained double decker Houseboat with good lunch onboard.

    Kerala is the nce Romantic Destination. Munnar is beautiful. The tea Gardens are just amazing, the scenery is great. Just relax and enjoy the calmness of the greens. Visit the spice gardens go for elephant rides or go for a walk in the greens. Natures walk. On your way you will also get to see some waterfalls. I think water + Greens together at a hill station make it perfect. The Vembanad Lake, a delightful picnic spot is really exotic destination, provides boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences that are truly exciting. Varkala Beach has beautiful and serene view. The cliff overlooks the majestic ocean and the sun just shines beautifully. The evenings will take your breath away. Amazing place to be with your honey.
