* Reaching Fort Cochin :
Cochin being one of the biggest city in Kerala is well connected and equipped with different modes of transportation. The Cochin Airport is just 41km away from Fort Cochin. The city is well connected with Ola/Uber, Rikshas and Metros etc. Shouldn't take you more than Rs.500 to reach Fort Cochin.
* Stay @ Fort Cochin :
There are Oyo to 5 star hotels available in the water front of Fort Cochin. However, personally I always book an AirBnb while travelling to Cochin. It is cheap, flexible, safe and private. So if you out with your buddies for a getaway, AirBnb is just the right choice for you. Another plus to it is, you have places which are hardly 1km away from the beach. So waking up to a bright blue sky with a view of the endless horizon of the sea is not a dream anymore.
On a personal note, 'The Spencer Home' is a beautiful AirBnb stay in Fort Cochin. With hardly 1km distance from the beach and the surrounding cafes, this is just a dream stay. The bright green garden and the old traditional Nalukettu style architecture of the place is what makes is unbelievably closer to nature and serene. The stay hardly costed me Rs.1200/night.
