I and my wife and I will be landing in Kochi aiport at about 9 PM. We are planning to spend the night in Kochi and catch a bus to Munnar next morning, as early as possible. For this, we are thinking of going to Aluva bus stand area, as I have heard there are buses at good frequency to Munnar. Is Aluva a safe area to go to in the night? Are there hotels nearby? Since its just for a night, we don’t plan to book any hotel in advance in Aluva. Are there plenty of budget hotels there and will it be easy and safe for us to reach there and then look for a hotel?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
