Referred to as the Venice of the East, this backwater country with its vast network of lakes, lagoons and freshwater river is immensely beautiful. Venue for the world-renowned snake boat races, Alappuzha is also famous for its marine products and coir industry. Kuttanad in Alappuzha, known as the Rice Bowl of Kerala, is the very heart of the backwaters and is one of the few places in the world where farming is done below sea level. The enchanting island of Pathiramanal (sands of midnight) on the backwaters is a favourite hanut of hundreds of rare migratory birds from different part of the world.
