Alappuzha

With the Arabian Sea on the west and a vast network of lakes, lagoons and fresh water rivers crisscrossing it, Alappuzha is a district of immense and natural beauty. Referred to as the Venice of the east by travelers from across the world, this backwater country is also home to diverse animal and bird life.
Today Alappuzha has grown in importance as a backwater tourist centre, attracting several thousands of tourists each year. Cruising on a boat through remote tribal villages along the tranquil backwaters of Kerala is a superb experience.
Alappuzha is also famous for its boat races, houseboat holidays, beaches, marine products, and coir industry. A singular characteristic of this land is a region called Kuttanad. A land of lush paddy fields, Kuttanad is also called the Rice Bowl of Kerala and is one of the few places in the world where farming is done below sea level.

Cochin

Cochin or Kochi is set on a cluster of islands, is one of India's largest ports and a major naval base. This place represents the true flavor of the Keralites. Cochin has been a busy harbour right from days known. The port is situated in the heart of the city. Pepper, sea-food, rubber and coir are exported from here. The backwaters, the lagoons, the palms, all fascinate the visitors.
Cochin consists of mainland Ernakulam, the islands of Willington, Bolgatty and Gundu in the harbour, Fort Cochin and Mattancherry on the southern peninsula, and Vypeen Island north of Fort Cochin, all linked by ferry. Most of the hotels and restaurants are found in Ernakulam.
The influence of Chinese, Jews, Arabs and Europeans is evident in Cochin and its people. The oldest church in India, 500-year-old Portuguese houses, old tiled houses built in the Chinese pagoda style, the famous Chinese fishing nets, a Jewish community whose roots go back to the Diaspora, synagogues and mosques all tell the fascinating story of this harbor town.
The older parts of Fort Cochin and Mattanchery are an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English country village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast. Cochin is one of India's largest ports and a major naval base.
