Cochin (a.k.a) Kochi is a major metropolis in Kerala. During the colonial era, Cochin was first occupied by the Portuguese, then the Dutch and finally the British and thus this city is packed with plenty of historical attractions.

Most of the Cochin city is surrounded by the sea. Fort Kochi and its neighbors, Mattancherry and Willingdon Island, make up the west of the city. They are interconnected with bus routes and the ferry service, which ensures that transportation from these places is easy.

The streets of Cochin are vibrant, with cool cafes and colourful graffiti culture giving us a very energetic experience. Fort Cochin, Mattencherry Palace, Chinese fishing nets, Jewish quarter & synagogue, St. Francis Church, Dutch Cemetery etc are some of the major sight seeing places in Cochin
