Overall Guide : Ernaakulamm... an amazing place....i jus luvd it the first time i visited... the beaches,, the surroundigs, etc... its a city which hosts many parties clubs n all.... u`ll have a great time there... Kochi is not the capital of Kerala,... more but it is a great deal more charming than Trivandrum, and, blessed with a good airport and infrastructure, is for many the ideal gateway to the state. In fact, this has been the case since 1341, the year nature carved out Kochi's harbor with a massive flood, and the city became the first port of call for Arabs, Chinese, and, finally, European sea merchants, who sailed for barter into what came to be known as the "Queen of the Arabian Sea."

Overall Guide : A stinching and unhygienic city. Rudely behaved city bus employees. Big shopping names, but unethical, expensive and on top exploiting. 90% of footpaths are occupied by vendors, tea shops, permanently stationed cart shops and exhibiting boards of shops. Everywhere, food... more waste and drainage smell. Unhygienic, but expensive hotels. If you have 2 days of work plan for a week as two days will be hartal shut downs. People will not answer you straight forward.

Overall Guide : It's very bad in the beach. It is full of waste materials. The children"s could not play. There are so many noise pollution on the road and so many traffic are there. We can"t cross the road. It is very... more dangerous because of theives they are taking our purse and running what police are doing.The items which we are bought from shops are very affordable. In temple when we are removing the sandal some one is taking the sandal and running.

Overall Guide : This is a very beautiful city. People here behaves friendly to those who are decent. But you have to be careful with people who stay here with bad intentions. Being a big citymany bad elements also assemple here. If you... more are vigilant about your movements you need not to worry about anything. You should vsit nearby places like kodanad to enjoy and understand the local people.

Overall Guide : Sleepy city. Stinks also (I mean literally), especially the gaps between the concrete slabs on the main roads. But otherwise a great place for shopping and eating. A lot of history. Can generally manage with english, which is unlike other... more places in Kerala.
Not to be missed shopping , backwater/harbour cruises , art galleries
