  • Known as the 'Venice of the East', with the Arabian Sea in the West and a large number of lakes and lagoons crisscrossing it, Alappuzha is one of the most beautiful districts in Kerala. Alappuzha stands out for its breathtakingly amazing beach and enchanting Backwaters. This beach along with its famous backwater Houseboats and Boat races attracts thousands of tourists every year. Sailing in a Kettuvalam (Houseboat) along the Backwaters of Alappuzha is an experience one cannot forget for a lifetime. A characteristic of this land is a region, Kuttanad, also known as the 'Rice Bowl of Kerala', is the only place perhaps where farming is done below the sea level. The scenic countryside here is a rich crop of bananas, yams and cassava. Kuttanad stretches for 75 Km sandwiched between the sea and the hills and are one of the best Backwaters of Kerala.
