    Shivangi's 4 days trip to Kovalam

    Trip was awesome no doubt we've enjoyed it alot. Still wants to share some hotel trip experience -: 1-The first hotel wasn't satisfied (Dew Drops) at Munnar. As we want a hotel/resort with tea garden view/farm view but the hotel isn't that promising much. There is a damp smell in the room,food isn't that much good,water problem is there, even some of the staff aren't helpful too. 2- The second hotel ( Arcadia Regency)at Alleppey is quite good. As it is in the main city, food was okay but prices is little bit Higher,room is also good. 3- The cab driver which is provide by your end Mr.Abu,he is quite good, helpful and cooperative too,he didn't speak hindi but yes he do understand hindi. 4-The boat riding at Alleppey was Higher, we didn't expect that much. 5- We have done the Jeep Safari as well,that was not in the trIp still we did it. In total we ignored some things which was not expected and enjoyed our trip.
