Alleppey - Venice of the East

Undoubtedly one of the biggest attractions in Kerala the world over, this small town with its network of canals and backwaters offers one of the most surreal experiences on any holiday.

Things to Do

One of the most unique experiences in the world, a cruise on one of the luxurious houseboats is a trip one should work for. While silently cruising along these stunning, calm waters, passing through villages and farms on either side of your boat, one can witness real life. Sightseeing in Alleppey should include the beaches. Alleppey Beach is the best-kept and scenic beaches in Kerala. A day spent on the beach here with its ancient pier leading into the sea is a day well spent.

Accommodation

Our journey was not planned, as I am staying in Pune so we decided to go Goa and come back, but then we decided lets go ahead so we did full of coastal by road in our own car, and landed in god's own nature Kerala.

It was so beautiful no word to express, and staying in house boat and person who were in charge to give us the service were so graceful hats off to there service and food they made in total in kerala style.

If you want to travel by your own car carry lots of fruits, water or homemade food, and see that your car should be perfect.

We started our journey from Thrippunithura (Kochi) at about 9.30 am, we boarded Sisira Travels air bus 49 seater. It has comfortable seats with best stereo music system, I believe its JBL. Anyway we played all kinds of music and even danced to its tune. We reached our destination (Alleppey) at 11.30 am.

This was last leg of my Kerela trip (Munnar, Tekkadi, Allepy and Cochin). I travelled by Toyota Innova. A quite comfortable UV for six people. The roads were wide and not much traffic hence could cover the distance in less than three hours.

Average car, but our driver Joshy was very friendly. Enjoyed talking to him through out the tour. We even visited his wife and child. He was good in communication and was very polite. Only problem was not able to communicate in Hindi. He showed us most of the places and provided information.
