|Ferry to Vypeen Island|
The city of Kochi (aka Cochin) is actually sprawled across the mainland suburb of Ernakulum, the peninsular suburbs of Fort Cochin and Mattancherry as well as across the 5 other islands of Vypeen, Vallarpadam, Willingdon, Bolgatty, and Gundu. Frequent ferry services run across the lake between the mainland, the peninsula and the first 2 islands, and bridges also connect all of them although it can be a much slower option at times. It’s a huge sprawl and traffic is a nightmare. Everyone who comes to Kerala usually love Kochi but it’s difficult when you first arrive to see what all the fuss is about.
