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.
Shopping in Alleppey: Alleppey is famous for its coir products, made from the fibers of coconut husks. 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. The spices bought from here are comparatively of better quality than what you will find at Kochi and would be homegrown and organic. Make sure to buy some organic coconut oil and fish pickles also.

It is always a good idea to get a massage or a spa treatment from places approved by the Kerala Tourism Department. Having said that, a couple of places where travellers can experience this Kerala speciality are Keraleeyam Ayurvedic Resort and the Sree Krishna Ayurvedic Center in Alleppey.
For vegetarians, the best place is Hot Kitchen on Mullackal road and Sree Durga Bhavan Udipi Hotel on Cullan Road. For tourists looking for multi-cuisine options, Vembanad Restaurant on AS Main Road and Kream Korner on Mullackal Road are the best places to enjoy tandoori, Indian, Chinese and Continental cuisines. Royal Park Hotel on YMCA road and Chakara Restaurant on Beach road are bar-cum-restaurants having a good stock of drinks.
Shopping in Alleppey is confined to a few small shops scattered around the backwaters. Tourists are specially recommended to buy the coir products like ropes and yarn that are sold by the local vendors. There are no shops per say, but tourists can enjoy shopping for carpets, pepper, coconut oil, areca nut, cardamom, and sugar. The prices of all the items are very reasonable.
Cochin International Airport is the nearest to Alleppey, around 73 kms away.
It is pretty easy to travel within Alleppey, thanks to the regularly available local buses, autos as well as taxis. Boats and ferrys are also available for places that cannot be reached by roads. You can also walk over to some of the attractions.
