Alleppey :

Day 4

After breakfast Check out your resort and drive to Alleppey ; also known as Venice of the east by its special geographical features as the place is famous for its vast back water stretches and paddy fields.

We choose to stay in the Resort for the First day and this was the best decision . We were confused weather to stay in the houseboat or in the Resort hence we spent two days in Alleppey . On reaching Alleppey we started for Karishna Puram Palace - which is a great Monument of History & St. Sebastian's Church in Arthunkal church which is 200 years old . & Some time on Marari Beach - Its clean , less crowd except some shops .

As soon as we finished the church we headed toward the resort to see the sun set - Alleppey Beach Garden its a private property where you can spent some quality time and its on the shore . The background music of the waves will always be there to entertain you .
