What we will do
• We travel from the port to the village of Kumbalangi, the starting point for our enchanting cruise, which offers an opportunity to observe the various local fishing techniques including veesuvala and padal.
• After leaving the boat we head for the village, where we are divided into small groups to watch the locals going about their day to day business: catching crabs and fish, preparing coconut milk punch, processing shellfish and coconut fibres, weaving rugs and oola madayal (special coconut leaves woven to create a roof covering), and making fishing nets.
• For lunch we enjoy local specialities in an open-air area with a view of the Chinese fishing nets resting on the surface of the water. We can see the way these nets are used and how the fishing system known as papu mari works.
• Such an exciting day would not be complete without a Kolkali performance, a traditional dance in which the dancers move in a circle, singing and dancing and tapping each other with sticks.
• And that is not all: after the performance we enjoy a brief rickshaw ride through the narrow streets of the village
