It was turning pitch dark and we didn't know where we were heading to, all in the hands of an unknown driver. I started having goosebumps although, I had booked this luxury houseboat from Grandeur Houseboats that boasts of the largest fleet of houseboats in Kerala.
The houseboat had a beautiful lounge area with a deck or top as I saw the next morning. We were told that Kumarakom is famous for serving sea food including squids and crabs in spicy preparations. Karimeen is offered in the hotels which is grilled fish with spices wrapped in banana leaf or else it is fried in a chilly paste.For vegetarians,you have rice preparation ,lentils, idli and other typical south Indian delicacies but spicier than usual.After the satiating meal, we tried sleeping but couldn't stop appreciating the ambiance of this houseboat.
