Fort Kochi (Beach)

Backwater ferry / bus / three wheeler auto rickshaw A leisurely walk through the city is the best way to discover historic Fort Kochi. An obscure fishing village that became the first European township in India, Kochi has an eventful and colourful history to tell. Its reputation as a seafaring commercial town was such that Nicolas Conti, an Italian traveller of the middle ages remarked: If China is where you make your money, then Kochi surely is the place to spend it. The town was shaped by the Potuguese, the Dutch and later the British. The result of these cultural interfaces are seen in the many remains of Indo European architecture that still exist here. The huge cantilevered Chinese fishing nets which were brought here by traders from the court of Kublai Khan, are a fascinating sight on the Kochi shore line.
