24 hours in Kochi
Lovely to just stroll around Fort Cochin, especially to see the big Chinese fishing nets along the waterfront. You’ll have no problems as a single girl, especially if you stay in this area, as it’s a popular spot with travellers in Kerala. If you haven’t already booked accommodation, Waltons Homestay was wonderful, I’d definitely recommend it. For me, the Kerala Folklore Museum in Ernakulam was probably my highlight as such a wealth of stuff inside – colourful masks, costumes and musical instruments, plus an amazingly decorative theatre on the top floor where you may catch an evening kathkali performance if you’re lucky. You’ll need to get an auto rickshaw here from the boat jetty in Ernakulum – ask for Theyvara junction. Have a great time!
