Kerala Backwaters - 8 hour trip from Kollam
Kerala Backwaters - 8 hour trip from Kollam Reviews
Beautiful, but 8 hours is too much Jan 29, 2013
We took the popular boat cruise from Kollam which took 4 hours and cost Rs.200 because we did halfway only.
Mostly there were tourists and the boat was kind of crowded. We had to seat on the floor, which was fine, but unconfortable for so many hours.
If your doing the cruise don't forget a hat and suncrem, in case you are sensitive to sun.
There is a stop at a restaurant, where you can have a meal and drink something.
The trip is beautiful and interesting, but it's too long, specially if you;re seating on the hard floor.
I noticed how poluted the waters were, with lots of plastics and other things floating. That was unfortunate and seems like the motor of boats like this one are responsible for part of the pollution as wel..
We went out at the Amma's Ashram, for an exotic experience, then we took a bus and moved on.
Part of the list Things to do and things to see
