Itinerary Details


Kochi Arrival

Welcome to Kerala! Upon arrival, a private transfer will be provided to the hotel. Cochin, also known as Kochi, is one of the principal seaports of India and a growing center of international trade and information technology.

The region has Arab, Dutch, French, Portuguese, and Chinese influences.

Kochi is a scenic city sprawled over several narrow islands and a strip of peninsula sheltered within a saltwater lagoon. Coastal Cochin is an intriguing mix of giant fishing nets from China, a 400-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese houses and the remains of the British Raj.

Evening at leisure and overnight.

Hotel: Trident Kochi

Kochi

Kerala Kathakali

After breakfast, enjoy a heritage walk through Fort Kochi. This walking tour gives you a glimpse into Cochin’s rich history and heritage showcasing the mixed Dutch, Portuguese, British, and Jewish influences that make the city unique. During the tour, you will visit the old quarter of Fort Kochi, exploring the quaint streets of this city on foot.

Also visit Fort Kochi’s seaside promenade and get a glimpse of the daily life in Kochi, including the Chinese fishing nets. A legacy left behind by the earliest people to call on the Malabar Coast, these nets are unmistakable as one enters the harbor. Records show that they were first erected between A.D. 1350 and 1450.  Constructed out of Teak wood and bamboo poles, they work on the principle of balance. The best place to watch is from Vasco Da Gama Square, a narrow promenade that parallels the beach with stalls that serve fresh seafood and tender coconuts.

Later in the afternoon, enjoy the Kerala Kaleidoscope. Showcasing quintessentially magnificent vignettes of Kerala`s rich cultural traditions, Kaleidoscope Kerala is essentially an exclusive, uniquely choreographed repertoire of live classical dance and music performed in a heritage theater with legendary ritualistic folk invocations and martial arts.

Evening at leisure and overnight.
