Reasons to visit Kochi

Passionate Keralan culture

Kochi has a laid-back atmosphere which makes it the perfect place to soak up the vibrant local culture. Each Indian state has its own soul – and Kerala is known for its expressive range of performing arts including Kathakali, a dance combining opera, ballet and pantomime that dates back three centuries.

An annual New Year Cochin Carnival brings traditional dance into the streets in late December. There are also opportunities to visit local places of worship, such as the Ettumanoor Mahadeva and Jain temples.

There are plenty of options in Kochi. Try the quaint cultural views of Fort Kochi Beach or escape from the city on the powder-soft sands of Cherai Beach.

Journey along the Keralan coastline to discover paradise coves – Alappuzha is the home of the state’s famous houseboat cruises and has a beach set beside tranquil lagoons.

Intriguing international influences

The city’s coastline is famous for its iconic Chinese fishing nets – a legacy of its historic trading links with China. These traditional rope nets are fixed in place with 30-foot-high bamboo sticks. If you’re lucky, you may glimpse a local perched on these structures as the tides ebb and flow beneath.

Examples of European architecture – such as Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica – also add to the contrast of styles across the city. At the Kerala Folklore Museum you can learn about how these influences shaped indigenous traditions.
