For a small city, Cochin seems to have too many malls and urban areas. The CBD/Central Business District is awesome to browse through including MG rd, broadway and all. However, no match for Banglore or Mumbai, I must say. Recently learned suburban cities around Kochi are also getting malls. Like in Muvattupuzha, Kodungallur, Kottayam Will the Cochin city expands to cover this region to be the next biggest city in the western coast after Mumbai?
