Leaving the rush of the city behind, you will gently transition to India’s coastline with a guided city tour of Cochin before being immersed in a mesmerising performance of cultural dance. With a night spent on the tranquil waters of Kumarakom Lake on a traditional houseboat, followed by a visit to a fishermen’s beach and charming backwater farmhouse; you will want nothing but to sink into the authentic lifestyle of India’s affable coast.
