Alappuzha - Venice of the East


      Kettuvalloms or Houseboats (Riceboats) are country boats that were used in the early days for the transport of goods from the isolated interior villages to the towns. With the advent of roads, bridges and ferry services, gradually the Kettuvalloms went off the scene. Now these kettuvalloms are back again as a major tourist attraction. A ride on a Kettuvallom is a fabulous way to explore the fascinating beauty of the backwaters.
Alappuzha is a small district in the god's own country - Kerala abundantly gifted with beaches, lakes, lagoons and canals. Alappuzha fondly known as the ' Venice of the East'for it's large network of canals. The canals are fringed with a green boundary of tall coconut palms. Known for its backwaters it has a wide range of lip-smacking traditional fish recipes. Get hold of the traditional kerala cuisine like Tapioca and fish Curry, karimeen ( fish ) fried and the authentic sadya which is bound to take away all that tastes you have had till date. Plan your trip so that you can experience the enthralling Nehru Trophy Boat race on the second Saturday of August that takes place every year. So dear folks! !What are you waiting for? Try to get there, the Venice of the East ' at south of India in kerala waiting for you.
