Cohin - Full-Day Tour with Guide w/Car

by bobnfran

Hi to all!
We will be arriving in Cochin by cruiseship for just one day on Sunday Nov 28 from about 9:00m to 5:00pm. We would like a "private" English-speaking tour guide w/car for the day for transport from and to our ship and to sightsee, enjoy lunch and soak up the atmosphere. Do you know of a guide or can you direct us to one? Do we need a guide? What are some must-see things to do and see in our very short time?
All help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks much,
Bob and Fran

Travel Tips for Kochi

Books

by PierreZA about Incy Bella, The Book Shop

This shop, like Idiom Books, do have a very good selection of books. Books on India, Kerala, Cooking Books, but it seems that they have a very good selection on the Religions practiced in Kerala and Cochin (eg Judaism in Cochin).

Dining by the Shore

by cochinjew about Fort House Restaurant

Dinner at Fort House Restaurant
We had celebrated the new year 2007 here, a nice dinner and some fireworks. I had not been back since then, even though I was here twice in 2007.
After being so disappointed by Talk of the Town, after the lovely massage we had decided to eat at the Fort House Restaurant. Since its humble beginnings in 1997 when there were just a few cottages and I had stayed in one of them in 1999, now there are two storied accommodations but the restaurant at the edge of the water remains the same, unchanged, including the seating and the chairs and the tables. I fondly thought of one of my earliest visits to cochin in 1995 when I stayed at the nearby Seagull hotel at that time one of the few places to stay, in a run down room which cost 8 usd at that time! Also remember there was a strike and no autorikshaws were available and we had to catch a lift in a Police Car to the old airport in Willingdon Island.

Tip 25
There were two couples from Italy sitting next to us, who ate French fries with rice! Certainly the travelling Europeans are tired of the Indian food?

Jewtown and streets of Kochi

by kentishgirl


The streets of Cochin are relativley easy to navigate, and to be honest it isn't a huge place either so you shouldn't get lost.
There are plenty of small shops on the narrow streets to keep you entertained. Some of the streets here had very European characteristics, others very Indian and then we walked into Jew Town.

Small shops, traditional trades like lace makers were abundant here, and at the end of a small street was the synagogue - pretty amazing I thought.

Dutch Palace

by illumina

Mattancherry Palace, also known as the Dutch Palace, was actually originally built by the Portuguese, and was presented to the Raja of Cochin in 1555. It was renovated by the Dutch upon their capture of Fort Kochi in 1663, and this is what probably gave it its popular name.

In 1951, Mattancherry Palace was restored and declared a centrally protected monument, and was undergoing further restoration by the Archaeological Survey of India when I was there in 2009.

It is noted for its beautiful murals, executed in the best tradition of Hindu temple art. The king's bedchamber is particularly beautiful, with its illustrations from the Ramayana which date to the 16th century.

Entrance to the palace costs a mere 2 INR. Photography inside is forbidden, but see the excellent video from Kerala tourism (link below).

Kochi- Cochin

by mallyak

Kochi (colonial name Cochin) is a vibrant city situated on the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula in the breathtakingly scenic and prosperous state of Kerala, hailed as 'God's Own Country'. Its strategic importance over the centuries is underlined by the sobriquet Queen of the Arabian Sea. Informally, Cochin is also referred to as the Gateway to Kerala.
Kochi is the arguably the ideal starting point for exploring the unfathomable diversity and beauty of Kerala, rated in the top three tourist destinations by the World Travel & Tourism Council and featured in National Geographic Traveler's '50 greatest places of a lifetime'.
