Things to do when in Alleppey, Kerala

Alleppey, also known as Alappuzha is a town in Kerala in southern India. Know for its scenic backwaters, Alleppey is also considered to be one of the oldest planned town in the region. Every tourist who has been to Kerala has been to Alleppey for its backwaters, more specifically all tourists have stayed in a boathouse which tours through the Alleppey backwaters. It is called the Venice of the East but that comparison does not make a lot of sense to me, as it is not its architecture but it natural beauty which attracts the tourists.

The town has been built between the beach and the backwaters, tooting green-yellow auto-rickshaws, jewellery shops, Keralan sweets and snacks stores, and a some canals running parallel to the streets sums up the town. Most of the guesthouses and restaurants are also in the town, but one should move away from it and head to the backwaters to breathe in the real Alleppey.
