Cochin to Chennai

by cherrybug

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how long it will take me to travel from Cochin to Chennai by train and whether I can get a direct train or if I would have to change.

Also how much would a one way ticket cost by air?

Finally can anyone suggest some midrange accomodation in Cochin popular with backpackers?>

Thanks

RE: Cochin to Chennai

by sacs2k1

There are many trains which will take you from Cochin to Chennai. It depends on what class of journey you like (Ordinary Sleeper / AC Sleeper) and if you want Day Journey or Night Journey. Here are the train names:

CHENNAI MAIL
RAPTISAGAR EXP
TVC CHENNAI EXP
DHANBAD EXPRESS
GUV CHENNAI EXP
HOWRAH EXP
AHILYANAGARI EX

The journey is approx 10-14 hours depending on the train.... You can visit www.indianrail.gov.in and click 'Train Fare / Accomodation'

Hope this helps...

cochin to chennai takes 12 and a half hours and leaves chennai at 8:30pm from chennai central. According to the info i have it is on the Alleppey express train no 6041. If your in india much longer i would recomend gettin the magazine "Trains at a Glance" it has all the train routes and time tables with all the info you need for 45 rupees. you can get it from most train stations at the ciosks. 2nd class sleeper is the best option and try and get an upper bunk if you can or a side upper its much more convienient.

The reliable DAILY trains are two. One is Trivandrum to Chennai mail and another one Alleppey to Chennai express. BOTH these trains are direct trains and you don't need to change.
It takes about 12-13 hours for one way travel.These trains are over night trains , that is,they leave late afternoon/evenings and arrive Chennai in the morning between 6-8am.

Airfare depends on when you travel and the airlines.

what does mid range mean interms of rupees.?

take care.

Travel Tips for Kochi

A few tips

by PierreZA

Travel light, as you have a lot of shopping oppurtunities! It is much better to wear cotton shirts, as T-shirts become clingy, soggy and does not "breathe" well. Mosquito repellent comes in very handy.

Give this a miss

by cochinjew about Sea Star Restaurant

Right in front of the Cerai Beach. Purpose built for the foreigner with a menu reflecting that. Hot and Humid, no power on the day we were there, other places had generators, but good view of the beach. Limited menu reflecting foreign tourists taste for snacks

Kerala and her Jews

by FruitLover

Of all the maritime nations that traded with ancient India, the Jews were the first to come to India not only as traders but as settlers. They made their home on the South-West coast as early as the first century, if not earlier.

The Jews then were the first aliens to settle in India, and it was as a result of generosity and tolerance to all religions, shown to them by successive Hindu rules in SW India.

Some sources say that the earliest Jews were those who settled in the Malabar coast during the times of Solomon, and after the Kingdom of Israel split into two. They are sometimes referred to as the "black jews".

The Paradesi Jews, also called "White Jews", settled later, coming to India from European and Middle Eastern nations such as Holland and Spain, and bringing with them the Ladino language. Spanish and Portuguese Jews (Sephardim) settled in Goa in the 15th century, but this settlement eventually disappeared. In the 17th and 18th centuries, Cochin had an influx of Jewish settlers from the Middle East, North Africa and Spain

Dutch Cemetery

by illumina

The 282-year-old Dutch Cemetery in Fort Kochi is considered to be an authentic record of hundreds of Europeans - both the Dutch and the English - who arrived in India to expand their colonial empire. It is the oldest European cemetery in India. Consecrated in 1724, the cemetery has 104 tombs. It is now being looked after by St. Francis Church.

The gates are closed for fear of damage to the graves, but they can be opened on request.

Fish Market by the Water and the Chinese Nets

by cochinjew

Fisherman arrive in the morning, bleary eyed, after the nights spent in the Arabian Sea, the larger catches have already been sold, I am told that they call by cell phones as they approach Cochin and haggle and sell their wares, the other fish are sold to the shop keepers right there and also to the various hotels and kitchens in the island. some fish are still left over and there is an engaging batter about the sales of these.. it is interesting to watch them, as they go about a ritual which must be very ancient.
