      by sonshim123 Online Now Sep 14, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      Hey guys!! I’m so happy and excited as my marriage will be on next month. I’m eagerly waiting for the day. We have planned to go to honeymoon in Kerala’s most beautiful places which we still haven’t made a decision. We have booked a cab in Cochin as we will be landing at Cochin airport and from there we are planning to go to either Munnar or Thekkady. Can anyone help me to decide which place should we go for honeymoon? I would be looking forward for your comments and suggestions. Thanks!!

      Hi to VT’s in Alleppey,

      Could any of you help me with information on The Alleppey Beach Resort?
      We stayed at this place last year and would like to do so again. Problem is I don’t know if they have closed down, or if they have changed their email address because my emails are being sent back. I don’t know how else to get in touch with them for a booking.

      I would also like to find out if a trip by boat is possible from Cochin to Alleppey, one way only. If there is, how long would it take and how much would it cost for 6 people?
