... of lagoons, rivers and canals stretching 250kms along what is also called the Malabar Coast. It's a romantic idyll of a place, inhabited by fishermen and rice farmers. The houseboats are designed after the original rice barges that plied the waterways, a bit like the Wherries that once worked the Norfolk Broads in England, and are now much sort after as pleasure craft.

This section of Fort Cochin seems to come alive at dusk, with hawkers aplenty and a number of fish stalls selling you your choice of the day's catch, whereupon you take it across the road to a restaurant who will cook it up for you.
