Went for a nice evening trip with my wife, relaxing atmosphere with a cool breeze flowing. Also went for a boat ride and it was awesome. Must visit while visiting ECR or Mahabalipuram.

We went for a 30-minute row boat ride. At 10 in the morning, it was already pretty hot, but the breeze was refreshing. Passing under the ECR was especially fun... The place is good, but facilities could be better. And it will be good if they open sooner (6 or 7AM) when it would be much more pleasant.
