After all what can beat the thrill of staying overnight on a houseboat that bobs up and down on the backwaters of the Arabian Sea? Gliding past silently alongside the small fishing villages that have made the backwaters their source of livelihood will give you a sense of peace and tranquility.

Apart the houseboats on the palm-fringed backwaters, there is also a chance to enjoy a kayaking expedition on the canals. You can either hire a kayak to row it yourself, or you can hire a canoe and an oarsman to row you into the intricate canals that run across the villages and the paddy fields.

      No Planning for sightseeing. List of activities not followed. Driver less understand English/Hindi (But Driving was Fabulous), Also less knowledge. Many Place skipped. Travel Triangle Agent Surbhi Mathur not picked the call once. No assistance. High Price Tour for me.

      Kerala always has been a good destination for couples who like to enjoy their private time. And this time it was no different. Except for the fact that we were able to take more time and spend time between each other rather than finding the Road and hotels because all that was done by Travel Triangle - Teamwork tour planner folks. They had meticulously planned the places and the driver was a wonderful guy who was perfect in all the areas- including talk, drive and suggesting the time to leave and come back. The arrangements were perfect with few glitches and I agree I am nitpicking here. The points that I am adding here are for improvement purposes. 1.We missed the breakfast every time because we wake up early and try to leave the hotel room at 7:30 AM. The breakfast starts at 8:30 and the resort staff packed Bread with butter for us. I guess it would be wise to start the breakfast at 7:00 and serve those who leave early. 2. Ervikulam national park is closed during this time of the year and we had expected to cover it. It was mentioned in the itinerary but we could not cover it 3. The driver we got was amazingly co-operative so we asked him if he wouldn't mind showing Kochi and few places on the way which are not included in the itinerary and he obliged. I guess not all the drivers are as friendly as him and agree as easily. So it would be good to add the kochi places to the itinerary and they are all pretty much coverable on the day we reach if we are able to reach Kochi before 8:00 Am. I am adding the best experience points here: 1. Boat house and the honeymoon inclusion with candle light dinner was exceptional and we liked the food quality and the ways and manners of the staff. 2. The seven springs resort is in a pristine place and is located at the right spot to enjoy the prefect weather of Munnar. 3. Driver was extremely good and I would definitely recommend him for all those who are travelling to Kerala. He was very good at timing and driving. 4.Places were perfectly planned and we had absolutely no issues with lunch and dinner. I am happy this time that I chose Travel Triangle and I am looking forward for another trip with them in a very short while . Thank you !

      Well Organized. I was very happy to see the House Boat, which very nice compared to any other around there. #shreekrishnahoudeboats thank u so much. Ajeesh from Southern Travels was very active. May be at some points he would have been a bit more quickl enough to cover some more places. Else, he was good, knew all the details of the places. If his health was fine we would have been more cheerful. 7Springs, lovely place to stay. All the facilities there are really nice. Tree house was more attractive and we missed it. Overall, arrangement was excellent and I would give all 5 starts to DisciverMyTravel for that. #discovermytravel and Specially Mr. Rishi away very active and did everything perfectly. Thanks to u man. Houseboat, Candlelight Dinner, 7Springs Resort.

    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.
