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.

      Thanks Travel Triangle and Duniya Zamana for such a wonderful trip. Special mention to Aftab for staying in touch through out the trip. Only challenge was the Cab and Driver who was highly ill-mannered and rude. Strong recommendation to avoid CHANDHU Cab services for future bookings to Kerala trip. Alleppey indigo luxury Houseboat and estuary island and resorts were the best memories.

    • Trip to Alleppey

      We had a wonderful time in Kerala and had a great person in Manisha who helped us make the right decisions. The stays at "Coffee Routes" and "Dream Catcher resort" were cater made for a grand gateway from the bustling surroundings and busy life and we cannot thank "there holidays there" and Manisha in choosing these exotic places for us. The weather was a spoilsport at Alleppey but we had a nice comfortable stay in the houseboat. Slight issues with the the AC functioning in the houseboat but that was a local issue. Manisha checked with us at each stopping point during the trip and made additional arrangements when we requested for a different pick-up/drop-off point. A very memorable and wonderful trip for me and my family. There Holidays There and TT are highly recommended for anyone"s Kerala tour from a very satisfied me :)

    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.
