Ernakulam Cochin Reviews
Very few interesting shops Sep 21, 2008
The main reason to go to Ernakulam would be to shop, but if you don’t really need anything (like sunglasses or clothing), you might as well skip it. The street ‘Broadway’ is good for local shopping, spice shops, clothing and a bazaar feel, but it pales in comparison to shopping streets in other Indian cities. There is hardly any atmosphere and very few shops managed to catch my interest (and I’m quite the shopaholic!).
The most fun way to reach Ernakulum would be to take the ferry that sails from Fort Cochin every 40 minutes. If you’re lucky, some local youths pop up to practice English with you.
