    Travel by bus

    AC bus

    I traveled by bus from Trivandrum to Alleppey during October 2008. For as little as Rs300 you can travel with an AC bus, which is very comfortable. The trip took about 3 and a half hours.
    It is best to book a day or two in advance. I initially wanted to travel by train, but all the trains were fully booked more than 2 days ahead.
    I booked through SRM/Yahtra/Golden in Trivandrum.

    Public ferry to Kottayam

    There are 5 daily public ferries that go to Kottayam between 7.30am and 5.30pm. The one I took was at around 10.30am but check the times where you're staying. The ferry trip takes around 2.5hrs and costs just Rs10 so it's an absolute bargain as it's a cheaper alternative than the Backwaters Tour.

    The day after I took the tourist ferry from Kollam to Alleppey, i took a public ferry from Alleppey to Kottayam. It's a different experience. The boat gets incredibly packed.
    It's fun to see how the locals travel over here though. It's like a bus on the water.

    The Boat parking lot

    There are hordes of houseboats to choose from for a ride into the backwaters. Ranging from 500 to 4000, for the luxurious ones with complete 5 star facilities. Make sure you negotiate well. Offseason, ur chanes of gettin a good deal are more.

    This parking lot serves as a starting point for all the houseboats near the allepy towncenter.
