Lots of faces....streets bustling with people from different country, Chinese fishing cantilevers, container terminal, huge ships carrying cargos, indeed a nice sight. A stroll around the place was really refreshing, we had pure fruit juice at one of the joints which was served without any siode, water, ice or sugar. Lots of colorful stalls selling clothes, gift items etc.

A lovely area which can be reached via the ferry from Fort Cochin or Tuk Tuk or via an organised tour. The streets are lined with shops and stalls selling lovely Keralan gifts A real buzz.

If you came that far, get yourself together and join the crowd in climbing the stairs to see this special palace. It is in quite good condition and it has beautiful wall painted panels.

Very inexpensive, contained some interesting displays. It was the only place we visited in India that charged for parking - even in a rickshaw!!

This is a lovely neighbourhood with several places of interest including Mattancherry palace and Padres Synagogue. It's not far from Fort Cochin and well worth the visit!
