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.
