Alappuzha, also known as Alleppy is a dream destination to many. It is famous for its breathtaking backwater views and the touristy vibe it provides! It is located in the state of Kerala, which we call 'the gods own country'. By air, the best way to reach is to fly down to Cochin International Airport, from where it takes approximately 2 hours to reach Alleppy. Well connected by road and rail, it is an easy to reach holiday destination.
Here's the story of how I explored this beautiful place in 3 days with only meager amount of Rs.2500
The trip was planned between me and two of my college friends to meet up after a long gap of 4 years. So Alleppy was indeed the perfect choice we made. Our first choice of stay was a hostel called Carpe Diem. But since we were meeting after a long time, we couldn't resist ourselves from being the talkative kids that we were back in college. Since the hostel caretaker restricted us from being ourselves, we decided to move to another hostel/home-stay. The second choice we made turned out to be exactly the kind we wanted. It was named 'South canal Holidays' and it was the most welcoming environment we could get. We got a private room for Rs.3000 for 2 nights. The rooms were very good. They had a lovely garden and great view. Once we settled for the place, we left out to explore the much famous land praised as 'Venice of the East'.
