An important tourist destination in South India is 'Venice of the East' i.e. Alappuzha or Alleppey. Alleppey is famous for its beaches, lagoons, backwaters and paddy fields but most famous for its houseboat cruises. Traveling in the backwaters on a houseboat is like bringing the wonders of nature in the comforts of your home. Watching the changeable scenery, taking in the cool breeze and listening to the wild and exotic birds chirping while you are relaxing is the ideal way to spend your holiday.
The best time to visit this wondrous place is in its winter months which are from November to February. The nearest airport to Alleppey is the Kochi International Airport which is 75 km away. Alappuzha has a train station that is 4 km away from the main city. Frequent ongoing trains are available from here. The Alleppey Beach and Lighthouse are two major tourist spots in this place. It is advisable to stay at the edge of the shore as the currents flow swiftly, especially in the monsoon season. You can engage yourself in water sports and activities like water bikes, boating and kids can go to the park nearby. The lighthouse built in 1862 is a compelling attraction for tourists and is open from 3 p.m. to 4 30 p.m. The Marari Beach is also a splendid place to hang out. Shores lined with palm trees give the perfect atmosphere of a beach where you can sit back and relax.
