MG Road area from PORT

by dundalkspur

Hi -I am on a cruise and need to get to MG Road from the port . Is it far ? Can it be done by taxi ?

Thanks

Re: MG Road area from PORT

by onelifetolive

We are currently vacationing in Kochi and so the information I am providing is reliable.

Going from the port to MG Road is very doable by taxi or you could even take an auto-rickshaw assuming that only two passengers are involved. Using an auto should not cost more than R50 depending on which part of MG Road you are looking to reach - MG Road is quite a long road. Using a taxi would cost you more but again it should not be much more than R100 or so.

Just make sure that you agree the rate with the driver beforehand otherwise you run the risk of getting into an argument at the other end. If you are planning on doing a fair amount of sight-seeing/shopping, it may be worth your while to take a taxi on an hourly basis - the charge works out to about R120 per hour for an air-conditioned taxi.

The current rate of exchange is about R49 to the US dollar so we are talking relatively little money by US standards.

Travel Tips for Kochi

Help the fishermen!

by Willettsworld

First erected between 1350 and 1450, the cantilevered fishing nets indicate trade links with China. Known as Cheena vala they are fixed to the land with an outstretched net suspended over the sea and large stones suspended from ropes as counterweights at the other end. Each installation is operated by a team of up to six fishermen.

I got called over to one by 5 guys who were working on it and they showed me some of the small fish they had caught with names like toad fish and pen fish. I then helped them by pulling up the net which they say they do between 250 and 350 times a day!

Good Keralan Food

by PierreZA about Hotel Cochin Fort

I had a few meals at this restaurant. They serve South Indian food, and I had some very good food here. During my last visit (Oct 2008) they had a staff problem and service was poor, as was some of the food (ice cold rice).
You will see people drinkning "tea" from teapots and mugs - tat is actually how they serve there ice cold beer! Keralan Food

Fort Cochi and the fishing nets

by cadzand

You haven't seen Cochin, if you haven't seen Fort Cochin's famous and mysterious fishing nets.
Like totems from another age stranded in time, they perch along the backwaters.
Those Chinese fishing nets are the most efficient means of backwater fishing and Fort Cochin is full of them. Dexterous fishermen constantly rise and descend them.....

St. Francis Church

by MikeAtSea

The inside of St. Francis Church is very simple if one compares the church to similar buildings in Europe and one imagines what important explorer lay here buried for so many years. Work started on the church in the middle of the 16th century and both the Dutch and Portuguese used this church. Most tumbstones from those times have been removed and memorial plates can be seen on the outside of the church of the various dignitaries that served this community.

Spices, spices, spices

by PierreZA

The best way of visiting spice wharehouses and NOT SPICE SHOPS, is to specifically ask a tuk-tuk/taxi driver that you would like to visit such places. In the course of a few hours we visited places where ginger, tumeric, black pepper and other spices were processed. It is facinating what you find inside old delapidated buildings. Then there is the Pepper Exchange in Jew Town, which you may visit.
