Arrival in Cochin

Arrival in Cochin

Cochin (or Kochi) is a quaint, colourful coastal town with Portuguese and Dutch influences. It’s still an important seaport for trade in gold, textiles, fish and spices. The spice market here is still one of the best in Kerala. Down by the water, you can see the legendary Chinese fishing nets in action. You’ll stay in the colonial home of a local family in the historic Fort Cochin district (we can arrange a hotel instead if you’d prefer).
