Alleppey- A place with magical charm
Alleppey, or also known as the Allappuzah, is a small picturesque town of Kerala, which is prominent for backwater tourism. Positioned in the middle of Arabian Sea and Punnamada Backwaters, the captivating town is embellished with canals, lakes, lagoons, paddy fields, wooden houses and backwaters, and all these together make it a popular Indian tourist destination. Also called as the "Venice of the East”, it is undoubtedly a destination of dreams.
A land of elation and romance, it is the world of simple delights. One of the most sought after romantic destinations of India; it certainly has components to cast a romantic spell on you. Vistas of exquisite houseboats sailing in the backwaters, enthusiasm of seeing a glittery night on a houseboat, miraculous experience of watching twilight from houseboat deck, sense of cool zephyr flowing through the emerald paddy fields on a starry night, rhythm of flowing river water, exhilarating exquisiteness of the villages far away and mouth-watering food of Kerala, all these amalgamate together to make Alleppey a tranquil world of desires.
Apart from houseboats, there are many more things to explore in Alleppey. Kuttanad, situated in the very heart of backwaters, is rich in paddy fields and thus it is named Kuttanad, which means a bowl of rice. The oldest Church of Kerala, Champakulam Church is also located in Alleppey. Some other attractions of this city are Alappuzha beach, Sea View Park and Karumadikuttan.
The buoyant town with bountiful natural beauty is just idyllic for spending some serene moments.
