Kochi harbor sunset is really nice. Either you can book a sunset tour provided by or you can go to Kochi fort area and enjoy the sunset. There is a government ferry service between Ernakulam and Fort Kochi. Or its connected by road. If you are going in December end it will be too crowded

"The Land of Chinese Fishing Nets, Forts & Museums"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 17, 2017
Kochi, the Fin Capital of Kerala State is the most sough after city there. It has transformed a lot over the last few decades and the urbanization might have destroyed a lots of its Heritage Importance.
Still we managed to experience the Best of its Heritage - St Francis Church at Fort Kochi. This is where Vasco Do Gama's tomb is there. It is still preserved. It is said that he passed away here and his tomb was made in this church and later his remains were taken to Portugal. It is now a live church and during prayer timings travellers are not allowed. But after prayer timings you could explore the church understand its heritage and have a dose of the Portuguese era in Kochi.
Later we visited the Chinese Fishing Nets which is a unique way of laying fishing nets overnight and get the catches next morning. This style of fishing nets is unique to this spot at Fort Kochi, you wont find it elsewhere. The old charm of these has faded away due to non-maintenance and the area is not kept clean at all. There would be tons of eating stalls all over the promenade and that has destroyed the charm of this unique beauty of Fort Kochi. Very sad.
Then we proceeded to Greenix Village in Fort Kochi. Greenix Village is a cultural art centre promoting Kerala's varied art forms under a single roof.
Every evening they showcase Kerala's best known dance drama Kathakali, its martial art form Kalaripayattu, a daily cultural audiovisual history at their in-house museum, classical indian music in the late evening & yoga training classes every morning.
This cultural art centre also houses an art gallery restaurant, a curio shop, book shop & vignettes of Kerala's cottage & craft industry. The village opens at 06. 00 am & closes by 10. 00pm. A Must Experience.
We also explored the Muziris Heritage Project, the dream project of Kerala Tourism for preserving India's ancient trade port and its heritage. Muziris, located in between Kodungallur-Paravur, is the largest heritage conservation project in India. They take you in boats to the various Ports that were build during Portuguese and Dutch Era in Kochi. The Government of Kerala has initiated the Muziris Heritage Project to reinstate the historical and cultural significance of the legendary port of Muziris. The region is dotted with numerous monuments of a bygone era that conjure up a vast and vivid past. A nice Tour understanding the history and cultural significance of the Portuguese and Dutch Era. I liked this tour and one should try and cover this when near Fort Kochi.
Nearest airport is Cochin International Airport. The nearest airport to reach Fort Kochi is the Nedumbassery (also known as Cochin International Airport) International airport which lies at a convenient distance of 20 Kms from Cochin city. The international airport of Cochin is well connected to all the major cities of India along with several international cities in abroad including Singapore and gulf countries. On arriving at the Cochin airport one can either hire a private taxi and board a bus to reach the heart of Cochin city.
Try local delicacies on the seafood side such as Fish Mappas, Appams, Stew and the traditional Sadya on a plantain leaf here.
