Kerala is one of the few places in the world you should visit at least once in your lifetime for exclusive unique experiences. There arrives a question as to which is best for tourism Kumarakom or Alleppey when you plan your Kerala tour

Alleppey in Kerala with its picturesque canals and network of backwaters, beaches, and lagoons is undoubtedly one of the best places to spend your vacation.

It is one of the best places to  enjoy the backwater houseboat rides. The geographical speciality of this land with its interconnected water bodies makes it undoubtedly one of the most fascinating places on the earth.

Enjoying a houseboat ride through the enchanting waters of the Vembanad lake is a great leisurely activity. The tiny hamlets lined along either side of the lake and the vast expanse of paddy fields along the way provides a great view.

It is a great place to enjoy your life with your family away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It is also a great place to explore the calmness of the village life. It would act as a perfect location for the whole family to come together and spend some quality time with each other.

You could relax on the sundeck and enjoy time with your family as the houseboat calmly wades through the tranquil waters of Vembanad lake (the longest lake in India).

Due to a large number of canals connecting the villages, you could thoroughly enjoy a trip to Alappuzha and experience the calm village life as it unfolds in front of your eyes

Alappuzha is bustling with tourists most of the year; houseboat ride is not the only kind of enjoyment that Alappuzha could offer. The place is also famous for its beaches and sumptuous seafood. 

But for those who are looking for a getaway to a naturally beautiful, peaceful place to spend some time especially with your partner then Kumarakom in the adjacent Kottayam district is a perfect choice. 

Kumarakom is a cluster of small islands and lies around 40 km away from Alappuzha. The place is famous for its scenic beauty, mangrove covered lagoons and the Kumarakom bird sanctuary.

Unlike Alappuzha, the number of canals is limited in Kumarakom and the most of the view will be of nature's silent beauty. But the place is also famous for the houseboat rides but the number of these boats is less compared to Alappuzha.

It is an alluring destination which is apparently less crowded and quiet compared to the tourists’ favourite Alappuzha. It is a perfect destination if you want to spend some quiet time and wants to be in the lap of nature. Maybe that is why it is mostly preferred by honeymooners.

The backwaters of Kumarakom are enchanting and the place is a perfect destination to spend your honeymoon days. An overnight trip through the Vembanad lake will be a romantic experience for the newlyweds.  

Kumarakom is a treat for honeymooners who are looking for a relaxed trip. You can also spend some time at the Kumarakom bird sanctuary, where you could see many rare migratory birds.

But as we mentioned the availability of houseboats is much higher in Alappuzha than Kumarakom. And for those who love to experience the backwater ride more than anything then Alappuzha is a better option than Kumarakom.
