                                      KOCHI CARESS

               A  breathtaking sunset  at Kochi harbour

 

Kerala is often called "God's Own Country" and that is not too far-fetched an epithet.U can short visit to Kochi and Kumarakom.

Your trip to Kerala be timed with the south-west monsoon striking the Malabar coast.U can stay at the Taj Malabar,Kochi and the hour long drive from the airport introduced to tropical  Kerala and its coastal backwaters.The hotel is situated on the man-made Willindon Island , which is about eight km from the city and has a great view of the harbour.

U can be accommodated on the sixth floor and have portfacing and sea-facing views.It also to be offered  an amazing glimpse the famous Mattancherry River.Through the windows,u can get a spectacular feel of the maritime pulse of coastal Kerala.U could see boats and ships of all shapes and sizes cruising down the river.U also spot eagles & kingfishers swooping into the waters.

Interestinly,the monsoon hit the Indian subcontinent precisely on the day (May 29)u can reach Kochi.The sight of the rain in the faraway horizon is quite spectacular.

The waterfront restaurant in hotel is a spendid place to laze around with a tankard of beer and a Lobster Thermidor!U could virtually feel the sea waves caressing  your stressed-out souls.

One should not leave Kochi without tasting the traditional Kerala cuisine.Try Tuna Vattichattu(tuna curry),Meen Moilee and Karimeen Pollichathu (Kerala fish fry).You can try Taj Malabar or Casino Hotel for the best seafood.

Kochi is a place where one is revitalised by the cool sea breeze that blows all your exhausion away.Kochi is not for shopaholics,though.As far as sightseeing is concerned,the old antique shops  and the synagogue in Jew Town,delectable seafood and Chinese fishing nets at the Vasco Da Gama Square,a magnificent view of the Kochi skyline at the Bolgatty Palace,shopping and dining on M.G.Road and a glimpse of the fort and Bruton Boatyard at Fort Kochi are must-visits.With its laid-back vibe and great views,Kochi is undoubtedly one of the finest places in coastal India to rejuvenate and indulge in soul food.
