Wondering what experiences does Alleppey has to offer? Well, it has many up its sleeve and they are sure to mesmerize you. Alleppey is famed for its astoundingly beautiful waterways, lakes and lagoons that offer a lifetime experience. Laze around and relax as the cruise glides through the palm fringed narrow canals winding through the vast expanse of paddy fields. So, the first thing in the list is the backwater cruise either on the houseboats or the canoe or motor boats.

Another thing to experience here are the Snake Boat Races which are held around the months of August and September and are a spectacular sight to behold. Tourists from all over the world come to see these races. It is truly an amazing sight to see long snake-like boats rowed by around 120 men compete in a race. The Nehru Trophy Boat Race, Rajiv Gandhi Boat Race and Payippad Boat Race are a few of the popular ones. For the competition, many varieties of multi coloured and well decorated snake shaped boats are prepared.

Other things in your list of experiences should include visits to the plethora of religious sites and the Alleppey beach. The beach should be visited during sunrise or sunset to capture the mesmerizing beauty of nature with golden sands under your feet and the majestic Arabian sea in front in your sight.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit this ‘Venice of the East’ in none other than the ‘God’s Own Country’.
