1. best way to travel between kumarakom and kovalam; worth it to drive to look at the country side ??
2. is a stay in house boat over hyped ?
3. Properties: I am confused between Nirmaya and Leela in Kovalam and Taj and Kumarakom lake resort in the backwaters 9also open to Zuri depending on reviews) . Eliminating Taj in Kovalam as its not by the beach.
