    Took a 3 day cruise on River Queen Houseboats and found this company to be wonderful. The boats were very comfortable, including my stateroom with bath, the meals were varied and quite delicious and the crew couldn't do enough for you. The boats were very clean and comfortable. We stopped twice a day to walk around a local village, mingle with the locals and stretch our legs! A wonderful way to enjoy Vembanad lake in India!

    We flew into Cochin and took 3 hour bus trip, over bumpy, roads to Kerala, where we boarded a total of three houseboats to cruise along Vembanad Lake. It is the longest lake in India and largest in state of Kerala. I was given a very comfortable cabin, queen size bed with own bath, tepid shower, which was fine, given it was very hot there! We had 3 …

    ... away, sail away, sail AWAY. Such a shame as we’ve since spoken to a number of other people who have thoroughly enjoyed their boat trips in Kerala, been on top quality boats, so maybe ours was an isolated unlucky experience, on reflection it would have been better to have just taken a day trip. We found out later from Chacko that Coco Boats are the cheap end of the boat market on these waters, primarily for use by the local ...

    35. Cocktails more expensive than those found in Manhattan do exist. (Monte Carlo, Florence, Dubai)
    34. Some stereotypes exist for a reason. (Germans follow rules; Italian men don’t)
    33. We don’t sing and dance often enough in public. It’s like a Glee version of the Ellen show on Broadway over here.

    ... than our previous taste. These shops memorized me as they are full of bags and bags of crisps in all varieties and you can watch some being fried fresh and then order however many grams you like.

    We stayed in a basic guesthouse, with an awesome rooftop cafe (although the service was very slow), just a short walk from the beach. The stretch of beach we strolled to was the dirtiest (full of litter) beach I think I have ever seen. Shame really as the sand ...
