Lonely Planet describes Kochi as a “nicely chilled city” and details the bohemian cafes and welcoming homestays. They describe how street art will feature in the 2020 Kochi-Muziris Biennale, to cement India’s place on the contemporary arts festival map.
As one of our most popular Kerala tour destinations, we couldn’t agree more. Kochi is a glorious fusion of colour, culture and cuisine, with something for every visitor to enjoy.
This port city has been a primary merchant and traveller gateway since 1341, with infrastructure and architecture influenced by its various rulers – the Portuguese, Dutch, Mysoreans and British. That’s why you can visit the Commonwealth’s oldest active synagogue, a 16th Century European church, and a Portuguese built, Dutch-renovated palace all in the same day!
