This post though is about what makes Fort Kochi particularly inviting – its various cafes and food joints. Most of the particularly famous ones and the more popular cafes / restaurants are clustered around the Burger Street and the Princess Street, two parallel running cobbled stone streets in the heart of Fort Kochi.

It is well known for its heritage buildings, Dutch, Portuguese and Chinese influenced architecture, upscale eateries and cafes and art galleries.How to get there: To reach Fort Kochi, we boarded a KSRTC bus from Thodupuzha the previous day to Ernakulam and got down at the Ernakulam Jetty bus stop. There is a jetty every 15 mins from Ernakulam (Cochin city) to Fort Kochi and only costs 6 rupees!Distance: 60 kmTravel time: 2 hours in bus to reach Cochin city, Ernakulam; 15 mins in jetty to Fort Kochi.Where to stay: There is a surplus of options in Airbnb to book homestays or heritage hotels in Fort Kochi.Recommended: Coconut Grove homestay. It was a rare find on Airbnb and our host is a super host.We arrived late at around 7.30 PM to our Airbnb homestay in Fort Kochi. Our host welcomed us with fresh lemonade which was a gratifying delight in the humid Fort Kochi weather. As it was too late to do any sightseeing, we decided to call it a night and gorged on Pizzas instead in our room.Places to see in Fort Kochi1. Mahatma Gandhi beach and Chinese fishing nets2.
