Venice of the East
Affectionately known as Alleppey to locals and tourists alike, Alappuzha acts as a major transport and cultural hub on the Kerala backwaters. A boat trip on the scenic backwaters remains one of the top things to do while on holiday in Alappuzha, with the canals that connect the city to the lakes, lagoons, and rivers of the backwaters giving the city its nickname, "Venice of the East." The rustic houseboats that bob on the water here, and the green paddies and rows of palms that surround the urban area, come together to form one of the most memorable and striking scenes in the state. Alappuzha is in Alappuzha District. Use our custom trip planner: Alappuzha and all its delights await.
