Trip Introduction

From the time you land up at the Kochi Airport, you know that you have come to the right place. The plane lands in Kochi and you walk down to the Airport which seems like a resort entrance. The Kochi Airport has a colonial feel to it with tiled roofs that is unlike any airport we had seen in recent times.

The Tiled Roofs of the Kochi Airport

At the airport, standing with a placard misplelled Suarabh Chokrabarty is Yahiya Khan, a smiling Keralite who is my Chaueffer for the day. Places To Visit in Cochin include Fort Cochin, Chinese fishing net, Jewish Synagogue, Hill Palace Museum. Find out best Places To Visit In Kochi, Kochi Travelogue, Kochi Tour Package. Kochi is known for backwaters. Yahiya is from the outskirts of Kochi, and speaks fluent English - Mallu style(Keralites are called Mallu's lovingly). So 'and' becomes 'Aaaand' and 'Warm' becomes 'Worm'...'Jug' becomes 'Jegg' and 'Place' becomes 'Plaice'. His accent kept aside, I liked the guy immidiately and started to see the city through his eyes. Yahiya has been driving cabs the last 10 years and mostly in Kochi, and so it wasn't difficult extracting information of the city from him.

How to get there

Kochi has direct flights from all major Indian cities and it also has a bustling International airport(Due to the Keralites moving to and fro from Middle East - their second hometown). In case you are coming from Delhi, it will be a connecting flight via Mumbai or Bangalore.It is also accessible via road through the NH 49, which connects Tamil Nadu with Kerala. Kochi has three railway stations and more information about trains can be accessed from the Indianrailinfo site.
