After we reached back to the port boat jetty, we drove to the Fort Kochi, which was a 20 min ride. Fort Kochi is a region toward the south-west of the mainland Kochi. It s famous for the old Portuguese Colony, Mahatma Gandhi Beach, and Chinese Fishing nets. We strolled around the Portuguese Colony, and it was neat & clean, very well maintained. Post that, we walked to the Mahatma Gandhi Beach & we walked across the beach. Then, we walked to the Chinese Fishing nets where fishers were carrying the sea animals in the vessels.
It was already dark, so we thought of having dinner at one of the cafes in East Fort. We drove to the Mocha Art Cafe, which was a 15 min ride from the beach. We had plates of pasta and sandwiches there along with the cold beverages. It was around 9 PM when we finished dinner, so we decided to drive back to the hotel and take a sound sleep before taking off for Bangalore the next day.
We reached the hotel by 10:30 PM, the delivery person from Revv came to collect the car around 11 PM. The next day we woke up and checked out of the hotel, and reached the airport. We took off from Kerala with the thought of coming back soon to this state, because it is as beautiful as we see in pictures. The locals are very welcoming & very helpful that you'll feel like home. Please visit yourself and share the experience.
