Transport advice:Bangalore to Cochin/Kochi

by akkindia

Hi everyone

I was wondering if someone could give me advice on how to get from Bangalore to Kochi. I arrive in Bangalore early hours (4.30 am) of Sunday morning and was wondering best way (quickest) to get to Kochi. I am a female travelling alone.

Thanks so much

The quickest way to reach Cochin is by flight..ofcourse if you can afford.

Air Deccan has a flight departure 6:00am from Bangalore and arrives Kochi at 7:15am.

Jet airways leave B'loe at 10:15am and arrives Kochi at 11:35am

Indian airlines has flight in the afternoon at 1300hrs and and some evening flights are also there.

Thanks so much Suru

Just tried Jet to get prices but it says can't do e booking for Cochin yet. Also Air India no flights for my selection. Just wondering where you getting info? I am probably being silly and doing something wrong.
Air Deccan looks good except I think cutting it a bit fine as International flight gets in at 4.30 am.

Any advice on other forms of transport or other airlines?

Thank you again

Yes...you got it wrong because AirIndia doesn't fly to Cochin from B'lore.
Indian airlines (now called INDIAN)flies from Bangalore as per following schedule on sundays.
Departs BANGALORE(BLR)
Arrives COCHIN(COK) 27 Aug 2006
27 Aug 2006 1245
1340 Airbus 320 IC909
Non-Stop INR 1680.00
On other days for example the tmings of Indian are:
Departs BANGALORE(BLR)
Arrives COCHIN(COK) 28 Aug 2006
28 Aug 2006 1300
1355 Airbus 320 IC909
Non-Stop INR 1680.00

With regard to Jet airways, the directflight schedules are:
Flight No. Origin Dep. Time Destination Arr. Time Days
9W3511 Bangalore (BLR) 1015 Kochi (COK) 1135 - Daily
9W523 Bangalore (BLR) 1715 Kochi (COK) 1815 - Daily

Kingfisher airlines also has two flights everyday from Bangalore to Cochin:

Dep B'Lore 06:00hrs/ arr Cochin0720hrs
Dep.B'lore 1840hrs/arr Cochin 2000hrs.

You already know the flight details of Air Deccan.

If you are flying some time week starting from 27th Aug then you may need to book in advance because of an important festival called Onam. On otherdays i suppose you can buy and get a seat just across the counter at the airport.

Other modes of transport are trains and buses that involves over night journey and advance reservation is a must fro the trains.




Travel Tips for Kochi

India is the most Pro Israeli country in the world

by cochinjew

A study undertaken on behalf of Israel's foreign ministry by an international market research company found that India is the most pro-Israel country in the world, beating out the United States by two percentage points.
The study, undertaken as part of the "Branding Israel" project, looked at what it calls the world's 13 most important countries and included 5,215 interviewees. Asked a series of questions, participants graded their sympathy for Israel on a 1-to-10 scale. Some results, given in terms of percentage expressing sympathy to the Jewish State:
58% India
56% United States
52% Russia
52% Mexico
50% China
34% Great Britain
27% France
23% Spain
Comment: The Indian statistic is not the only striking one - note the continent of the countries clustered at the bottom and how much lower their numbers than those of Russia and China. Just as the U.S government should rethink its military alliances, so might Israelis take a fresh look at the globe. (April 3, 2009)

where Nuveux Riche Locals Eat

by cochinjew about The Grand Hotel

A little pretentious, recently done up place, with somewhat gaudy appearance pretending to be luxurious. good service as expected. Marga Chertha Meen Curry, less spicy.
another fish curry, Vartha Meen Palcurry ( sorry for the spelling, it sounded that way as I recollect) soft fried seafish pieces dipped in mild gravy
plain rice

Jewish Synagogue

by Skibbe

Built in 1568 by Kochi's Jewish community which once was the largest in India and is now just a few families. It is quite small but gives you a good history of the community. Shorts are forbidden inside but they will give you something to wrap up in.

Chinese Fishing Nets (2)

by suvanki

A combination of cords, pulleys and weights is attached to the 2 wooden poles that rise 30m into the air from a platform.

From their tips, hang 4 wooden talons, which the huge net is suspended from.

Church at Kodamangalam

by cochinjew

Attending a religious service, a non hindu one is an anthropological experience in Kerala. Since the christians and Moslems are racially the same people and converted into their religions from Hinduism, the hindus in Kerala are very tolerant of their "errrant" brothers. and the erstwhile Hindus while worshipping Christ or Mohamet has not given up many of the rituals of Hinduism and particularly many of the symbolism. Looking at a crowded service at Kodamangalam christian church, there were reminders of Hinduism everywhere and I was told by a local that these people are relatively new converts to Christianity, not like the ones who greeted Vasco da Gama..
