Chinese fishing nets in Cochin

arrow pointing down

A sleepy seaside town with buckets of history

Stroll along the harbour to see the iconic Chinese fishing nets, check out the churches and enjoy a massage

Few places have a history like Cochin (Kochi). This ancient port once traded spices with the ancient world, and later became a colonial outpost for the Portuguese and Dutch. The European flavour is still strong in this sleepy seaside town.

You are in the home of Ayurveda, the indigenous knowledge of life and longevity, so treat yourself to massages and traditional therapies for body and soul.

Stroll along the harbourside to see the intriguing Chinese fishing nets – you can buy a fresh catch directly from the fishermen and take it to a nearby restaurant to have it cooked to your preference.

A closer look at Cochin reveals some unusual history, including synagogues that are home to India’s Jewish communities, and churches founded by the Apostle Thomas, one of which contains a relic of the saint’s elbow.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
