Cochin


Plan the best holiday ever in Kochi Backwaters

Popularly known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, Cochin (Kochi) is one of the finest natural harbours in the world and is the gateway to the enchanting backwaters of Kerala. Kochi is the business capital of Kerala and is one of the fastest growing cities in India. It is comprised of a group of islands scattered along the Vembanad Lake. An interesting ensemble of various cultures like the Portuguese, Jewish, English, French, Dutch and Chinese, Kochi is a tapestry of vivid and varied colors, which attracts scores of tourist from far and wide to its shores.

The most important activity in any Cochin tourist itinerary would be a ferry ride across the vast expanses of Kochi backwaters. Hemmed with swaying coconut palms and Chinese nets silhouetted against the backdrop of the setting sun, the backwaters make a breathtaking spectacle. The majestic houseboats that glide across the water form another dramatic spectacle that not many cities in India can boast. Cochin backwaters indeed occupy a top slot in the tourist map of this beautiful city.

No matter whether you are here in Cochin to explore the charm of the bygone era, savour the tantalizing seafood delicacies, explore the culture heritage and art forms or just to break free from the daily grinds, Cochin will be a good choice. There are many popular tourist attractions around including Bolgatty Island, where the Bolghatty palace, built by the Dutch in 1744 stands. The man made island of Willington Island is another must see spot in Cochin. It was made by filling the dredged soil around a tiny natural island that existed previously.


Step back in time by making a trip to the heritage zone of Fort Kochi where you can see vestiges of Dutch, English and Portuguese colonial rule even today. The shady avenues, the sleepy streets and the imposing European heritage and true cosmopolitan temperament of Kochi will make you fall in love at first sight!  A leisurely stroll along the streets that tell a thousand tales about its past is a delightful way to discover the charm of this city. Enjoy a boat ride across the blue lagoons to take a peek to the unhurried pace of its rustic life and its true beauty, shop till you drop at any antique shop or enjoy the life go around from a wayside café.  It would be a good idea to check out any authentic Ayurveda facility in Fort Kochi to indulge in a relaxing ayurvedic massage that will make you relaxed and refreshed. Options are truly yours while you are in Cochin.


Fort Kochi beach is an ideal place to have a tryst with sun and sand and to spend a quiet evening. There are many seafood restaurants and eateries along the beach that serve fresh fish delicacies and grubs at easy prices. Cochin tourism is a diverse experience on its own that is beyond words. Come and experience the magical charm of this friendly city that is one of the favorite tourist destinations ever!
