It was during my trip to Lakshadweep, I have planned to check out the city of Kochi from which my cruise ride to those beautiful Islands was suppose to start.

Kerala, this state on the Malabar coast has everything to offer for a tourist right from serene beaches to scenic hills, from tea & spice plantations to dense forests & calm backwaters.

Having covered most of the places in this state during my previous trips, I decided to explore the city of Kochi.

 

Kochi, the largest city in Kerala, has historically been an important port city right from the 14th century - colonised by the Portuguese, Dutch & British at different times in history, the city still preserves an intriguing mix of architecture from its varying colonial past.

The fort Kochi area has it own quaint charm, It is buzzing with tourists, but each at their own pace - this part of the city has a homestay in every corner! We chose to discover this area on foot since all the places we wanted to see were close to each other.

Constructed in the year 1505, this Catholic Church located in Fort Kochi is famous for its Gothic style of architecture and Portuguese interiors.

Fort Kochi is a small village along the Arabian coastline and is famous for the Chinese Fishing Nets, Dutch Cemetery, Synagogue and Churches.

Bearing witness to the entry of Chinese into Kerala long ago, legends tell that these nets were a gift of the famous Chinese King, Kublai Khan. Fishermen even today use these elaborate conventional fishing nets, making it the only other destination other than China to have and use these fishing nets.

It was my first ever only-on-foot town exploring and I was not disappointed at all. Just have an umbrella ready for the sun or the rain.

The Sunset Cruise on the Arabian waters is an amazing 2 hour journey beginning from Marine Drive in Kochi during the time of sunset.

Located on the north end of the Vypeen Island, the Cherai Beach offers a beautiful view.

Beaches are amazing creation of nature where people can relax, enjoy beautiful moments and feel freedom. Fort Kochi beach, Kerala is one such calm and a beautiful place.

Kochi is one of the best places to spend time in the city and provides an amazing view of the sea.

Pickup a walking tour map from the Tourist Info centre, I hit the road to explore the streets of Kochi.

Getting done with the day, I have walked back to my hotel to get ready for my cruise ride to Lakshadweep islands the next morning. Will post more pictures and details about the Island in my next travelogue. Cheers :)

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
