Best Places To Visit In Alleppey

Let the experts guide you to the best of the city of backwaters

The abundance of places to visit in Alleppey will leave a tourist in awe of the beautiful town. Nicknamed as the “Venice of the East,” Alleppey is famed across the world for its backwaters and canals that criss-cross each other. Families, friends, honeymooners and solo travelers flock to Alleppey, or Alappuzha as it is also known, for a chance to relax and rejuvenate themselves. It is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations of the state, mainly because of the backwaters, although there are several other Alleppey points of interest.

Sightseeing in Alleppey is not just limited to the backwaters. There are also sunny beaches here such as the Marari Beach. Located nearly 11 km away from the city center in Mararikulam, the beach offers a sense of seclusion. It is a great picnic spot, and when you move away from the heart of the beach area, you can also come across small coves and lagoons to soothe your soul.

Other Alleppey tourist places include several temples and churches such as Mannarasala Temple, the Ambalappuzha Sri Krishna Temple, Arthunkal Church, Krishnapuram Palace and Alappuzha CSI Church, which is the oldest Anglican Church in Kerala. The Krishnapuram Palace is a must visit for all history buffs, who want to learn more about the culture of Alleppey and Kerala in general. Arthunkal Church, also known as the Saint Sebastian Forane Church, is a 16th-century place of worship. The annual ten days festival held here referred to as Arthunkal Perunnal is one of the most attended in the state.

If you are pressed for time and are looking for places to visit in Alleppey in 1 day, then make sure to enjoy a day cruise on the backwaters instead of spending a night here. Watch the villages glide by as you lie back and enjoy the lush greenery all around you.

    Ludhiana

    Sranamrit's 4 days trip to Alleppey

    Everything else was very well planned. The only thing that was not good was the location of the resort in munnar. It was actually too far from the main city. And the houseboat was also okay. But the staff and everything else was so good. I loved the jeep safari. This was a perfect vacation that i was looking for.

    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. 

    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.
