What We Love About Cochin

Over the tropical coast of Malabar is Cochin, India's major port bordering the Laccadive Sea, filled with many islands which tourists can freely explore. However, Kochi, as its also called, is also a cosmopolitan city and where you can also enjoy a cultural excursion at the Mattancherry Palace, old spice warehouses, Jewish synagogues, mosques, and churches! Another must-visit destination is The Fort. Here, tourists can enjoy a laid-back walk through tree-lined streets surrounded by buildings and structures with Portuguese, Dutch, and British influences.
