Alleppey, also known as Alappuzha in official documents, is a picturesque location renowned for its lovely backwaters and the houseboats that offer overnight accommodations. During the dry season, Alleppey’s coastline has some of Kerala’s top beaches and water sports.
In Kerala, a state in southern India, Alleppey is adjacent to Kochi. Many travellers from around the world are drawn to it by its palm-fringed interconnect network of canal backwaters. Alleppey is frequently thought of as a superb destination for a honeymoon or a wonderful family vacation when combined with other stunning locations in Kerala like Munnar and Thekkady.
There are plenty of houseboats, homestays, and rejuvenating Ayurvedic resorts that make staying in Alleppey brilliant. The houseboats pass through the serene backwaters, where you can catch glimpses of green paddy fields, and choir-making activities, and witness the life of locals in Kerala.
Be sure to catch a traditional snake boat race in the months of August and September and try out some toddy (palm wine) at a local toddy shop for adding a touch of authenticity to your travel experience in Allepey.
