How To Reach Alleppey

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

For those still in a tizzy about how to reach Alleppey, it would be good to remember that although there are several ways to get to the city of Alleppey, but there is only one way to reach the backwaters of Alleppey, and that is by road. You can take a flight to the nearest airport or a train to the nearest railway station, but either way you would have to hire a cab from there to reach Alleppey. It is the 10th largest city of Kerala and offers some of the best natural beauty that the state is famous for, be it the crisscrossing canals that intersect the small fishing villages or the houseboats that glide past silently with its load of eager tourists.

      • Trip to Alleppey

        Had a great trip, however was not happy with the stay at Alleppey Houseboat.... The request raised was for four star hotels, in Alleppey the house boat offered was a three star. Munnar, thekaddi were the place to visit.... We really enjoyed the trip.... It was awesome experience in thekaddi to know about the spices and plantation. Munnar is beautiful place for sightseeing.

        I took the Kerala trip via sethi travels. This was my 2nd trip through Travel Triangle and it was a great experience. Nitin from Sethi travels helped us planned our trip in a nice manner. Our trip itinerary was as follows : 1. Munnar(2N) : Misty Mountains Resort --> Great place to stay with an amazing view 2. Thekkady(1N) : Coffee Routes Resort --> 10 kms from city, in between the forests; very peaceful and blissful stay 3. Alleppey(1N) : Soma Houseboat --> Heritage room (Dlx) of this houseboat is one of the best budget room, One of the highlights of our trip, Food is okay, an be improved 4. Varkala{1N) : Hindustan Beach Retreat --> Near to the beach 5. Day6 : Varkala --> Kanyakumari (+sightseeing) Planning trip is one part and execution is another, which depends a lot on weather and driver. Fortunately, for us weather was really good and Sethi Travels made sure that driver was Really Really good. Our cab driver (Mr. Shah) was one of the main reason why our trip was so awesome. He guided us a lot during the trip, was very interactive and really helpful. I would also recommend taking elephant bath in Munnar/Thekkady, it would be an experience to remember :)

      FAQ's of Alleppey

      Read on to find out why our customers love us!

      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. 

      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.

      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.

      Cochin International Airport is the nearest to Alleppey, around 73 kms away.

      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.
