Hey all! My sister and I are going to India for the first time and need a little advice!
We will arrive at Cochin Airport around lunchtime on the 29th December. We are staying in Allepey and working our way back to Fort Cochi.

What is the best way to get to Allepey from the airport in the shortest time possible?
We are trying to cramp in as much as possible in our 3week trip

many thanks
Laura x

you can take a cab, bus or a train depending on the time/budget you hvae. If cab then best option is to ask the hotel(where u intend to stay in allepy) to send one. If on shoestring budget..if u arrive before 2.00 pm, then you can check around to get buses to allepy too. Train might be a bit of inconvinience as from cochin nearest station is Aluva and then u might have to check for trains stopping at Aluva southbound via Allepy....

thanks for the advice, the pre arranged taxi might be the way to go. I'll ask my host to negotiate prices as I dont want to be ripped off!

At the airport you can hire a prepaid taxi. It is done in small office just outside the airport and the prices are fixed.
There are more threads about this, I just remember this one, Only 4 days in Kerala - possible???

You don't need to worry about negotiating because it is fixed on a reasonable basis and need not pay anything more than what you paid.
