Hello all.

Just booked a flight into Kochi from Delhi that lands at the airport near Kochi at 3:50 on November 1 (according to the itinerary, at least). I had been hoping to get to Alleppey that night, but the evening trains from Ernkaulum are limited. There is one at 5:25 PM and one at 11:35 PM. Is there any likelihood of arriving at the Ernkaulum train station for the 5:25 train? ANd if we take the 11:35 train, will we be able to get to our accomodation via rickshaw or car or foot since it will be after midnight?

The alternative is to leave early in the morning the following day, but as we only have three days to spend in Alleppey and the backwaters, it would be nice to get there as close to landing in Kerala as possible.

Or, does anyone how much it would cost to hire a taxi/car to go directly from the airport at Kochi/Ernkaulum to Alleppey?

And--one more thing--how feasible is the bus option?

So many questions.

Thanks!

##If somebody sees "3.50", he will get an impression that you are arriving "early in the morning".

##Only after reading the second sentence, he realises that you are arriving in the Afternoon.

##In the Topic heading, you mentioned "Alleppy Airport". I was little bit surpirsed when did Alleppy get its Airport.!!!

##Coming back, the Kochi Airport is about 15Kms. away from the City and a little bit closer to another important Town,Aluva (**Alwaye). Ernakulam is Rly.Stn.Name in the Kochi City.

Sorry for any confusion in the heading. the slash between airport and train was meant to correspond to the order of Kochi and Alleppey. so the airport in Kochi and train to Alleppey is what I had intended to mean. and I'm going to have to rapidly get used to the 24 hour time stamp.

##Perhaps, you could have given the topic heading as
"Reaching Alleppy from Kochi Airport" so that you could have got the advice even for Road Journey from Kochi Airport to Alleppy!!!!
