The town of Alleppey has some tourist attractions, but the main reason to visit it is to do a backwater tour.
In the town center you will find a couple of Hindu temples, which in opposition to other temples in the region, are open to non Hinduists. In downtown Alleppey you will also find a market and some souvenir shops worth visiting. Alleppey has also a beach, but not suitable for swimming.
One of the things to do in Alleppey, apart from tasting the South Indian food, is to have an Ayurvedic massage.
