How to get from Kovalam to Cochin..

by Jessichops

There will be 3 of us travelling from Kovalam to Cochin, and were wondering:
a) what's the best method of transport to use and how long would the main options take?
b) Our preferred other option would be to travel overnight, is this an available for this route and how / how much?

If we were to hire a driver for this journey, how long would it take in a car and how much would it be (roughly)?

Thanks in advance

Kovalam to Cochin would take you around 4.5 hours on road by cab/taxi, will cost you between Rs3000/ to Rs5000/ depending on the kind of vehicle you will need.

Bus will be the other choice, Rs200/ per person on A/C Volvo buses from Trivandrum bus terminus. You will however have to take a cab from Kovalam to Trivandrum, will cost you Rs400/ by cab/taxi.

Train is not advisable, as its a short journey, but you still can take a day train by a/c from Trivandrum to Cochin would cost you Rs250/ per person and again you need to take a cab to the station at Trivandrum. The station and bus terminus are opposite to each other.

Train needs to be booked in advance, buses will be available without booking

For Over night travel, it is not advisable because train will leave you at Cochin at odd hours(around 3:30am).

You need to reach Trivandrum station from Kovalm. From TRIVANDRUM CENTRAL TRAIN STATION, there are many trains all thru the day and evening.You can pick one that is convenient to you. Train tickets about 4:45mnts one way.Check the website http://www.indianrail.gov.in. If you can reserve in advance, it's better.Train journey is picturesque!!

Incase you take care, you need to pay for return trip also even if you don't use it. May be car will take a little longer due to traffic.Ofcourse you can take a bus too from Bus station, may take a bit more time depending on the stoppages it makes and traffic. If you wshh to take care, suggest you to hire from your hotel.

all the best,
Suru

Take a train.

The 2076 JAN SHATABDI Express leaves Trivandrum Central station TVC at 06.00 in the morning to reach Ernakulam Junction in Cochin ERS at 09.15 am. It covers the distance of 200 km in 03.15 hours. It has AC Chair Car; very comfortable - like an airline seating.

I think you will be best taking the train - AC chair car - but tickets must be booked at least a couple of days in advance. Trains are excellent value in India and tea/coffee/snacks are always available throughout the journey.
Enjoy your journey.

Travel Tips for Kochi

Good South Indian Food

by cochinjew

People who have travelled to India and especially the southern cone of it, know very well that the Indian Restaurants in the west usually represent a very narrow aspect of the cuisine of this much varied cuisined country.
For some reason or other, I prefer the cuisine of South India: Idlis and dosais for breakfast; Lunch Meals with multiple vegetable curries preferably on banana leaf and for dinner: curries to choose from: preferably fish of which there is plenty in cochin the people who have to be the nicest people in all of India.. then again i have not experienced all of india and possibly never would, never mind, they are very nice
homecooking is excellent in kerala... on each of my visits i get at least invited into homes for about 50 per cent of my meals.. that is okay..

Efficiency at Cochin International Airport

by cochinjew

Air Asia from KL arrived on time at 1600. Doors opened at 1605. I was first out of the plane and the first on the Immigration Line. 1610 had already been through immigration and Collected the bags. 1615 paid for the taxi and 1620 I was inside the taxi on my way to Metropolital Hotel in Ernakulam.
I have noticed that since they stopped checking people and their baggage going back about 10 years, the immigration and customs procedures are a breeze. Good on You Cochin

Paradesi Synagogue [continued]

by FruitLover

The Paradesi Synagogue was built in 1568 by descendants of Spanish, Dutch and other European Jews that became the Malabar Yehudan people or Cochin Jewish community in the Kingdom of Cochin..

It has served as a functioning synagogue throughout the centuries, and preserves a unique record of Jewish presence in India.

The Clock Tower was added later in 1760.

In fact, the Mattancherry Palace temple and the Mattancherry synagogue have a common wall

Dutch Cemetery

by SirRichard

This cemetery seems a bit abandoned and most of its tombs are partially covered by the plants, but is interesting to read the inscriptions and imagine the kind of people who are buried here.
It was built in 1724 to bury Europeans who died here on the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Now is managed by the Church of South India.

Paradesi Synagogue

by Willettsworld

The Paradesi Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in the Commonwealth of Nations (former British Empire), located in the area of Kochi known as Jew Town. It was originally built in 1568 by the Malabar Yehudan people or Cochin Jewish community. Paradesi is a word used in several Indian languages, and the literal meaning of the term is "foreigners", applied to the synagogue because it was historically used by "White Jews", a mixture of Jews from Cranganore, the Middle East, and European exiles. It is also referred to as the Cochin Jewish Synagogue or the Mattancherry Synagogue. It is the only one of the seven synagogues in the area still in use. The complex has four buildings and was built adjacent to the Mattancherry Palace temple on land gifted to the Malabari Yehuden community by the Raja of Kochi, Rama Varma. The present building dates to 1664 after the original building was destroyed by shelling during the Portuguese raid in 1662. The Clock Tower was added later in 1760, which is why the date is shown on the clock face.

Open: 10am-12pm & 3-5pm Sun-Thur.
