Allappy Backwater vs Kochi Backwater trip by KTDC

Hello All,

I am bit confused between Kochi and Allappy backwater trips.

Actually I don't want houseboat stay. I only want to enjoy backwaters of Kerala.

I know that Kochin daily tour by KTDC is very economic. But I heard that it's scenic beauty is not so good as Allappy.

So, can you people please guide me to choose between those two places for only backwater day trip.

And one more thing we are going in first week of January. So, can I get small boats in Allappy for our trip with in economy range or little bit higher. We are total 4 people including my parents.

Many Thanks in Advance,

Regards,

Prateek S

Hi John,

Thanks for replying my query.

But as I mentioned, I don't want house boat...because it is more costly.

Do you have any other option for enjoying backwater beauty through small-2 cannals by country boat or any other less costly boat ??

Actually we want half day trip(~5hrs), and we are four people. And we are taking a budget of 1000/person max.

One more thing, do you provide hotel/homestay also in Allappy and what are the charges ?? We stay there for one night and next day after morning we will do backwater trip. And evening we will depart for Munnar.

If you want, you can mail me all details personally: prateekshukla1857@gmail.com

Hello PrateekShukla1857,

if you are staying Alleppey the previous night then you can have backwater cruises in Alleppey

Take a shikkara or motor boat that cost Rs 450 per hour and you can go for the canal cruise
