      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.
