A must visit to this island and take a boat ride through narrow lanes of back water. We did take this tour and enjoyed the narrow lanes while boating. It was a great experience for us.

Munroe Island canoe ride is a must-do if you're in Kollam. We went for a boat ride for 2 hours almost in the Ashtamudi backwaters and it turned out to be the best experience. With Allepy being overcrowded and too much commercialised, this makes up...More
