Cochin Vacations

Cochin VacationsCochin or Kochi is also known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea and as the Gateway to Kerala. Both are very apt names for this beautiful city which was visited by Arabs, British, Chinese, Dutch, and Portuguese over the centuries. They have all left their indelible mark on the city. Let New Age Tours plan your Cochin vacation so you get the best out of your visit.


Cochin has grown over the years and is a leading commercial centre and port in south India. It today includes Fort Kochi, Mattancherry and Ernakulam, its twin city. The sea has always been integral to Cochin’s development. Something which is not seen anywhere else outside China is the Chinese fishing nets that line the waters. As you walk past the harbour city watching the fisher folk using them you will notice several old homes that are built by Europeans in the past.


The oldest church built by Europeans in India, St Francis Church is in Cochin. Vasco da Gama, the first Portuguese trader to reach India from Europe by sea was originally buried here.


Mattancherry or Jew Town is a charming part of the city which is home to the oldest Jewish synagogue. Built in 1568 it has beautiful blue Chinese tiles and Belgian chandeliers. Giant scrolls of the Old Testament can be found here. The road leading from it has old Jewish homes which sell priceless antiques today.


Nearby is the Dutch Palace of Mattancherry which today houses old paintings and murals. Another Dutch palace was built on Bolghatty Island, just a short boat ride away from the mainland. Today it has been converted to a beautiful hotel and even boasts of a small golf course. A harbour cruise is a good way to see all the important landmarks of the city and there is a chance you could spot dolphins too!


Cochin is good place for shopping particularly for textiles and handicrafts of the south. Antique lovers will not be able to resist the treasure troves of Mattancherry! Fill New Age Tour’s online form today to plan your Cochin vacation!
