Alappuzha provides a unique canvas to the traveller, where life revolves around water



Alappuzha provides a unique canvas to the traveller, where life revolves around water. Here there are few roads; only waterways. Though roads have been constructed in the last two decades, some areas are so enclosed by water that they are navigable only by boat and ferry. Houseboat cruises operating in these backwaters connect Alappuzha with Kumarakom and Cochin in the north and Kollam (formerly Quilon) to the south.
