Only the Caribbean and the Mediterranean aren't made for cruising. There are several other great destinations to enjoy sailing and cruising tours. One of them is – the Indian Subcontinent. In India alone, there are such places that you would love exploring in a cruise ship, yacht or houseboat. If you're headed to southern India, you can plan exciting sailing and cruising holidays across the length and breadth of Kerala, famously known as the 'Land of Backwaters'. A houseboat cruise along the coconut palm-fringed backwaters will simply take your breath away. During your houseboat sailing tour in Kerala, you'll love soaking up the splendid views of mangrove forests, coconut woods, beautiful beaches, historical buildings etc. Moreover, you'll experience the lovable countryside lifestyle.

Popular backwater destinations in Kerala include Alleppey (or Alappuzha), Cochin, Kollam, Kumarakom, Kottayam, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram, Kuttanad and Kasaragod among others. Kollam-Alappuzha backwater cruising is a favourite for tourists.

or a scenic cruise along the Mandovi River in India, you should head straight to the state of Goa. You'll be entertained through traditional dance and musical performances while on board. In addition to all the luxurious treatment on the cruise ship, you'll get an opportunity of visiting some of the most popular religious sites in the state. Sailing down the Ganges in Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) during sunrise will open your eyes to the vibrant Hindu customs, traditions and their way of life along the river banks. Sunset boat cruise along the Lake Pichola (Udaipur, Rajasthan) is another fantastic tour option travellers love to indulge in.

Sri Lanka is also a perfect destination for luxurious cruises. During your cruising and sailing tour in the country, you'll simply have the time of your life in an opulent yacht. Major attractions of the sea vacation include sunset cruise, deep sea fishing and whale/dolphin watching plus toothsome barbecue meals on board. There's a lot more!
