Alappuzha is now the hub for backwater tourism in Kerala. House boats locally called “Kettuvallam” are available on hire on a daily basis as well as for longer durations to take visitors on the old waterways. These house boats in general have 2 bedrooms and attached bathrooms. Some of the boats have the bedrooms fitted with air conditioners. A routine trip includes food cooked on board in the traditional kuttanad style.

Alappuzha also known as Alleppey, is a town in alapuzha district of kerala state of southern india. A town with picturesque backwaters & lagoons, it was described as the List of places known as Venice of the East byLord curzon. It is the administrative headquarters of Alapuzha District.

Myself & my family got a chance to visit these places couple of months ago.We went on the pullikattil  house boats on this trip & the house boat was fun to be.I managed to get some clicks on the boat & the owner of pullikattil house boats liked these very much.He requested me to share the snaps with him ,which i did very eagerly..
