Alleppey Tourist Information

Here's some important information as recommended by Lakhs of our travelers

Here is some essential Alleppey tourist information that you might need on your travels to the beautiful city and backwaters of Alleppey. When visiting Alleppey, don’t go with preconceived notions of it being just another backwaters destination. It is much more than that; all you need to do is to explore it extensively. Make sure to take along an Alleppey tourist map, if you can find one with distance and directions to the most popular attractions of the place, and you will be all set to enjoy a great trip.

Nightlife in Alleppey: Being a small town in rural Kerala, there isn’t much of a nightlife here. The bars and pubs, few as they are, are located right on the edge of the city and don’t offer much in the way of excitement. There are several restaurants in the city center if you are hankering for a taste of local delicacies other than what is available at the houseboat. Some of these restaurants specialize in South Indian cuisine, whereas some offer a global food menu, including Chinese, Italian, and Continental. If you are looking for a couple of drinks only, then it is advisable to go to these bars. Otherwise, it is better to stay in at your houseboat. In fact, the houseboat cruises in the evenings, which take you to the edge of the sea, is all the excitement that you might need when here. Imagine watching the sun set over the horizon, seemingly near enough to touch, and you will be able to understand the beauty of the place. What else could you possibly need?

Food in Alleppey: One of the best-known fact about Alleppey is that it offers some of the best seafood in the state. Starting from fishes of several varieties to crabs, octopuses, mussels and a lot more, you name it, and Kerala has it. Alleppey is a great place for seafood aficionados. However, good food in Alleppey is not limited to just seafood, since it is a great destination for vegetarians to have their fill of delicious food as well. Alleppey traditional food includes the staple dishes of the state, including dosas, idlis, appams, and other rice based dishes. Toddy, a strong local alcoholic liquor, is a must-have drink when here.

Carpets are also pretty well-known, and if you have can transport one home then make sure to buy one. You can also shop for the freshest spices at the local markets.
