You can experience the complete ambiance of a home whilst you float on the backwaters in the Superior houseboat.
Amid your cruise, hoards of spectacles and episodes are bound to render you the typical feel of a countryside. To name but a few in the list would be just lying back on the shore, gazing at the moonlit sky and simply enjoying the silence, putting your feet in the shallow water and watching numerous fish crowd around (a few of them might even give your feet a kiss or two ), looking out for the fishermen who pitch their net for the day's catch et cetera. The sailing expedition takes you along friendly cheering children, coir workers going about their daily jobs and also other similar snake boat docks.
Alleppey has a maze of backwaters, bridges and canals, many of which you will be criss-crossing on your cruise.

Watching women work in these paddy fields singing traditional Kerala songs is another interesting thing to do. You can even think of learning a verse to entertain your friends back at home.
