I have been recommended to pick Alleppey over Kumarkom as the houseboat experience in Alleppey is a teeny weeny bit better than Kumarakom.
I would like to hear from you guys on what you suggest?
If you need to know, we will be going to Munnar before we reach one of these places for a night on a houseboat. We doing only these 2 places on this trip to Kerala. We'll be back again for Thekkady and other places. :)
