My best words to you, start your going-to-be amazing trip at Fort Kochi, the heart of Kochi. I hired a self-driven car in Kochi to visit from place to place. Fort Kochi has a significant amount of activities to do and places to visit there. You can expect a lot of foreign people embracing the Kochi culture. The street vendors sell variety of things like food, clothes, artifacts, arts and crafts etc. You’ll notice the beauty of it all. Imagine sitting on the shores of the Ft Kochi Beach, jamming music, eating local cuisines and feel the waves come all the way to your feet as you gaze at the distant ships, boats and cruises passing along in the distant ocean. The famous cuisine here is seafood. You’d be surprised of how fresh and tasty they are. You can watch how fishermen use the Chinese fishing nets to catch a ton of fishes. This is one of the best beaches in the state. The evenings here work its charm on the people by the cool breeze and soft music playing from restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotels provide good service and are affordable. It is also a great spot for short family trip.
