Kochi

A Classic Maritime City

Once heralded as the Queen of the Arabian Seas, Kochi is a city steeped with history and old world charm. Upon its classic shoreline, is a unique architectural blend of Arabian, European and Asian influences that compose Kochi's vibrant scenes.

Fort Kochi, near the coast, is both a touchstone to the past, and a relief from the city's booming cosmopolitan heart. Witness and participate in the daily haul of the Chinese fishing nets along the shore. Ride a rickshaw to the Museum of Kerala History, to experience a multimedia show that magnificently depicts the region's storied past. A short train ride away, the silky sands of Cheral Beach provide a haven for travellers seeking a relaxed take on island life. Try the local food and enjoy cuisine that is truly distinct from the rest of India.
