Exotic shikari boat rides
A ride in the shikari boat would take you to the serene inland waters. Here you can see unique bird species and varieties of mangroves. Visitors could even try their hand at toddy tapping, weaving roofing sheets with coconut leaves, and fishing. Additionally, there are countless restaurants that serve local cuisine.
