Alappuzha Backwaters, Kerala

Alappuzha Backwaters, Kerala

Dubbed by many people as the Venice of the East, Alappuzha Backwaters has been a significant part of Kerala’s maritime history and is now a popular destination for its holidays, boat races, beaches, coir industry and marine products. 

The main draws here include the Alappuzha beach, which is a popular picnic spot; the entertainment facilities at the Vijaya Beach Park, the 137-year-old pier; and an old lighthouse that has been fascinating visitors who came to the place.

One of the most delightful things that you can experience in this part of India is a cruise on a houseboat. While there are similar cruises all over the country, the one in the backwaters of Alappuzha is unique in a way that it is a reworked version of the original kettuvallams used in the olden times to transport rice and spices. 

Kettuvallams were once called “boat with knots”, as their entire body was held only together with coir knots. But today, houseboats in this region already have all creature comforts of a good hotel, which include furnished bedrooms, cozy living rooms, kitchens, modern toilets and even balconies, which are great if you are in for fishing. While cruising on one, you will definitely enjoy uninterrupted views of the Alappuzha Backwaters. For booking a trip to this wonderful destination, check out the Kerala holiday packages here at La Vacanza Travel.
