Houseboats as an economic tourist option

Aleppy: There is a Malayalee touch to the houseboat floating in the waters of sylvan Nuwara Eliya in central Sri Lanka. The man who launched houseboats in little England is Thrissur native Jaison Panikulangara of Saj House Boat Builders & Operators. The boats made of wood with inboard engines have all the comforts of a 4-5 star hotel including furnished bedrooms, living rooms, dining area and an upper deck providing seating for 100. Jaison host 12 of his Sri Lankan friends at ridiculously low rate of re. 10,000 for a night for 12 tourists. They were fascinated to see hundreds of houseboats in Alappuzha backwaters. Jaison says that Kerala is yet to tap the the full potential of tourism.
