Join us on a holiday to Kochi

A majestic blend of diverse cultures, religions and architecture, Kochi (also known as Cochin) is one of Asia's most unique travel destinations.

Located in India's southern Kerala state, the port city has a long and rich history dating back to 1341, with the remnants of its former influences easily visible on our Kerala, Bangalore and South India tour. A Kochi tour will provide the chance to see an intriguing mix of centuries-old mosques and synagogues, Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial architecture and modern skyscrapers, making for a special locale that is unlike anywhere else in India.

Kochi is perhaps best known for the Chinese fishing nets that line its shores. These stationary nets have been used here for centuries, and have since become synonymous with the city. The best place to see them is in Fort Kochi, a historic coastal area that is also home to sites such as 16th-century Saint Francis Church and 19th-century Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica. Elsewhere, Mattancherry Palace delights visitors with its mix of European and Keralan architecture, as well as its beautifully preserved and intricate murals, while Paradesi Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in the British Commonwealth, offers a fascinating look at the city's Jewish history.

Some of our package holidays to the Taj Mahal also include a visit to nearby Marari beach, a serene and scenic spot perfect for some time spent relaxing on soft white sand.
