I always get that exclamation emoji face whenever I tell people that I am from Alleppey. I know the next would be a bombardment of questions. Always armoured with the template answers, I promise that I'll take them home to show the not so known tourists spots. Alleppey offers so much to people who come to drink in the beauty. In addition to the houseboat ride along the backwaters, the cuisine and lifestyle are to be experienced in their purest form. The numerous brackish canals and lagoons make this place true to its name Venice of the East. The green you see here is a shade that's exclusive to this place.
Alleppey's charm is in the pearl spot.
I lost my soul to this delicacy of Alleppey, the Karimeen(pearlspot). Meen is fish in Malayalam. No seafood lovers will leave Alleppey without trying the Karimeen. Its uniqueness comes from being in this backwaters, a mix of salty and freshwater. Fishing fresh karimeen and frying it, is a mandatory touristy thing to do while on your houseboat ride.
