A day well spent at Kochi

It was a Diwali long weekend, and since we were not visiting our family – don’t judge me 😀 – we planned a long weekend trip to Kerala. Kochi was the first leg of the trip. We planned our stay around Fort Kochi, which takes about an hour and a half from the airport. As we were planning to spend just a day in Kochi, we had booked a very basic homestay to freshen up and rest the very night we reached. Since we did not have an itinerary in place, we quickly Googled ‘Things to do in Kochi’, and looked up a few places to roughly plan our day. We decided to walk around the area and explore as many cafes as possible.

Our Stay: Immanuel Home Stay

You can also stay at: Zostel, Kochi

Fort Kochi has some of the most beautiful cafes in the country. Mentioned below are some our must-do things that we would love to do it again.

  1. You make your visiting city look wonderful. A great way to expand the beauty of her map. Cafes are always that sweet attraction that makes a city worthwhile visiting. We need these liquid and hot beverage books to catch our breath. Beautiful pictures, attractive to any tourist hoping or wishing to visit some day.
