Standing strong with some of the most renowned tourist locations in the world for houseboats is the land of Alleppey in the southernmost Indian state of Kerala. The backwaters of Alleppey have gained prominence throughout this century and is only getting more popular by the day, helped immensely by the sweet, cool weather in Alleppey, almost all year round.

Summers (March to May)
With the setting in of March begins summer. The season is marked by the rising temperatures and moisture levels. Being a town of backwaters, it is no surprise that the rising temperature marks the humidity rise, thus making it one of the least favourable seasons for tourism. The temperatures vary between 25 degree Celsius to 37 degree Celsius with occasional showers towards the end of the season. However, this season is the best time for any tourist looking forward to cutting costs on accommodation (since summer is off-season).
Monsoons (June to September)
The Monsoon season begins from the first week of June and stretches up to the last week of September. Alleppey receives heavy rainfall during monsoons which could mar your travel plans especially if you are looking for a lot of activities. But this might just be the perfect place to be for a romantic vacation. The most important tourist activity of the region, a houseboat ride, along with other activities are occasionally hampered due to the heavy rainfall. However, this is when the famous Snake Boat Ride happens - an event which attracts tourists seeking off-beat experiences. This season also offers discounts and great deals offered by hotels looking to fill up their empty rooms.
Winters (October to February)
The best time to visit the 'Venice of the East' is during winters when the weather is pleasant and calm, with temperatures ranging between 17 degree Celsius to 32 degree Celsius. Winters in this tropical paradise are not too chilly and a light jacket would suffice even at night. The boat rides and other tourist activities are in full swing during this period.
Regardless of how splendid the scenery of Alleppey is, the weather plays an important role in letting you enjoy the complete experience. Although you will be in awe of Alleppey no matter when you go, head there during the winters for that perfect experience.
