Trip to Keralathe Dream catcher resort at Munnar is a fabulous resort. Spice country resort at Munnar was good but Food is too bad and restaurant delivery time very late. The House Boat at alleppy is not as per Photos provided. It is Substandrd. Also it was Anchored at a Scary Place at night. But Food and service was good. The support from Maneesha was fabulous and she was responsive.
Trip to KeralaWe had an awesome time in Kerala. The only concerns that we had were - 1. In Tea Valley resort, Munnar Airtel network wasn't there and so they should speed up their wi-fi at least. 2. The Houseboat wasn't upto our expectation. The whole trip has been customized according to our preference and so we really had a great time there. Thanks to Travel Triangle and Great Indian Vacation.

Trip to KeralaThe cab and the driver were really good, no complaints about that. The whole trip the driver was really cooperative and friendly. He helped and guided us along the way. The only issue was with the wrong itinerary provided. As we were expecting the activities included in the itinerary but upon reaching there we were said that we had been provided with wrong itinerary.

Though Malayam is the most commonly spoken language in Kochi, most locals do understand both Hindi as well as English.
The best time to visit Kochi is between November and February, when temperatures are most comfortable and the weather is dry.
Start with the very artsy Kashi Art Cafe, hop over for a vegan sandwich to the Solar Cafe, try Norwegian salmon at The Rice Boat, dig into Malabar parottas at History Restaurant or savour traditional Kerala cuisine at the Malabar Junction. Food in Kochi is a delight.
In Kochi, you can buy antiques, crafts and spices from Kochi and most importantly you can join the Onam Festival or the grand Kerala shopping festival if you're a shopaholic.
