Hi, my wife and I will arrive in Cochin on Nov 1 night-time.
We are first-timers in India.

We have four full days (Fri-Mon) in Kochi. It's for us to relax and 'warm-up' before our flight to North India on Tue morning.

Things we'd like to see/do
- Fort Kochi
- Munnar
- Backwaters
- Train ride, just for the experience

We're not too interested in beaches (plenty in Southeast Asia where we live).

Some qns:
- Any suggestions how to do them within this time period? Or is it too much?
- How is Munnar compared to Cameron Highlands? Also, will the Neelakurinji flowers still be around in early November?
- Are there any train rides that let us see the backwaters?

Thanks a lot for your help

I suggest you forget Munnar, for the time you have at your disposal, it's approx 8 hours up there and back by car.

If you want to experience a train ride then maybe take the train from Kochi to Allepey where the backwaters are, spend 1 night and take a car back to Kochi or you could consider staying in Fort Kochi and using it as your base and possibly do a half day backwater tour with these people. they will pick you up from your hotel and drop you back.

If your budget allows there are some really really nice Heritage Hotels in Fort Kochin where you will be able to relax.
