ALAPPUZHA by siril thomas
India
lappuzha Backwater Known as the 'Venice of East', with the Arabian Sea in the West and a large number of lakes and lagoons crisscrossing it, Alappuzha is one of the most beautiful districts in Fascinating Kerala. Famous for a horde of things, Alappuzha stands out for its breathtakingly amazing beach and enchanting Backwaters. This beach along with its famous backwater Houseboats and Boat races attracts thousands of tourists every year. Earlier known an Alleppey, it is now famous for the Snake Boat Races held here every year around the time of the Onam festival. Fun, frolic and entertainment are at their peak during the boat races held at the Punnamada Lake in Alappuzha. You can enjoy the exhilarating snake boat races of Alappuzha every year on Fascinating Alappuzha Backwaters Tours, Kerala. Sailing in a Kettuvalam (Houseboat) along the Backwaters of Alappuzha is an experience one cannot forget for a lifetime. A singular characteristic of this land is a region called Kuttanad. Kuttanad, also known as the 'Rice Bowl of Kerala', is the only place perhaps where farming is done below the sea level. The scenic countryside here is a rich crop of bananas, yams and cassava. Kuttanad stretches for 75 Km sandwiched between the sea and the hills and are one of the best Backwaters of Kerala.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
