Alappuzha, or Alleppey, as the world has come to call, is the land cradled amidst the glorious backwaters of southern India. Alleppey proudly wears the title of ‘‘Venice of the East”, which is more than justified by its web of rivers, interspersed with meandering canals. The bustling city is a mix of colonial buildings, surrounded by rice fields. Apart from being a merchant gateway, it is also historically prominent for its classical literature and cultural exchanges with the west. However, backwater tourism remains the main attraction here, with houseboats flocking the many waterways and channels. Alleppey is well connected by road, rail, and air. While Cochin International Airport is 78 km away, the district has its own railhead too. The waterways make for conveyance too, as an SWTD (State Water Transport Department) boat jetty rests just opposite the bus station.
