Known as the Gateway to Kerala, this enchanting city has had an eclectic influence, with a range of cultures, such as British, Arabs, Dutch, Portuguese and Chinese leaving their marks here. While in the city, you can visit a lot of historical and architecture sites, particularly Fort Kochi that is drawing most of the visitors who can explore it by walking or cycling.

To make your Kochi holiday more worthwhile and memorable, here are some of the best things to do to include in your itinerary:

  • Get an Ayurvedic massage therapy - At Fort Kochi, you will find a renowned Ayurvedic center, which is situated on a picturesque seaside that is surrounded by lush tropical foliage.

While Kochi offers many places of interest, here are the attractions that you should not miss:

  • The Backwaters - This covers a chain of brackish lakes and lagoons that lie parallel to the coast of the Arabian Sea in Kerala, and in Kochi in particulalr, it stretches from Kochi Azhi to Munambam Azhi, with serene backwaters popularly known as Veeranpuzha.
  • Marine Drive - A picturesque promenade in the city, this was constructed facing the backwaters and is a favorite hangout for the locals. It has several shopping malls and a walkway that has two contemporarily constructed bridges. The view of its setting, the rising sun over the mouth of the sea and its gentle breeze has made this place a main tourist destination in Kochi.
