You may have to wake up some hotel guys,
one of them may even turn you away. Thinking that we are trying to scare you
away? Yes ... you are right, but the chances are that if you have stayed
with us through all this ... now that we start talking Cochin, you'll hardly
move. That's the magic of the city.
Cochin is the financial centre of
Kerala, the city where it's difficult to separate the old civilization from
the modern lifestyle, so intertwined are these two here. In the western
India, Cochin is second to only Mumbai in terms of commercial activity. The
city has had cultural and trade relations with the outside world all through
the early years. Also known as Gateway to Kerala, the foreigners have left a
strong imprint on the development of this city ... but that is not what we
are asking you to come here for. That Cochin is ensconced between Western
Ghats and Arabian Sea definitely helps ... and the fact that its climate is
pleasant throughout the year (because of its proximity to the equator and
the sea at the same time) makes it all the more tempting. Even if you want
to explore entire Kerala, Cochin is ideal launch pad for such a visit.
Cochin Vacation Options
- Cochin Tour
Tours to Cochin - Cochin is a city that moves at a fair
clip and is among the most modern cities of India. Once an unimportant
fishing village, the place became the first European township in India. It
now boasts of several reasons making it a vacation option that you'd like to
die for ... well ... not literally. Instead visit Fort Kochi, only 12 km
away from Ernakulam, an alluring small heritage town that seems tailor made
for travelers. Take a stroll through the place as that is the best way to
know the area. See the Chinese fishing nets brought by the traders from the
court of Kublai Khan that are huge by any standards. Feel the history of the
place by going to Mattancherry Palace that was built by the Portuguese and
later renovated by the Dutch. You'd love the mural paintings detailing
scenes from ancient Hindu legends such as Ramayana and Mahabharata. Continue
with the historical part of the city as you visit the Jewish Synagogue, the
oldest and grandest in the Commonwealth and Hill Palace Museum,
Thripunithura that was the residence of the royal family of the city. Don't
stop now as you are yet to see the St Francis Church and the local spice
market that has made this place famous for years.
