The ancient port city of Kochi is the melting pot of God’s Own Country, a confluence of cultures that dates back to the 14th century. To truly understand Kochi, we suggest you begin your holiday at Fort Kochi. Explore the Paradesi Synagogue, the oldest in India and the Mattancherry Palace that was gifted to the King of Kochi by the Portuguese.
Head out at dawn to the Kochi Harbour to watch the sun rise over the Chinese Fishing Nets, one of the most iconic sights of the city. We also recommend taking one of the many cruises that take you round the Kochi harbour. Cruise past Willingdon Island and the scores of steamers and ships that line the harbour. Enjoy a sumptuous Malayali lunch before heading to Cherai Beach, the perfect place in the city to people watch and see the sun go down.
