We started our journey from Thrippunithura (Kochi) at about 9.30 am, we boarded Sisira Travels air bus 49 seater. It has comfortable seats with best stereo music system, I believe its JBL. Anyway we played all kinds of music and even danced to its tune. We reached our destination (Alleppey) at 11.30 am.

This was last leg of my Kerela trip (Munnar, Tekkadi, Allepy and Cochin). I travelled by Toyota Innova. A quite comfortable UV for six people. The roads were wide and not much traffic hence could cover the distance in less than three hours.

Average car, but our driver Joshy was very friendly. Enjoyed talking to him through out the tour. We even visited his wife and child. He was good in communication and was very polite. Only problem was not able to communicate in Hindi. He showed us most of the places and provided information.
