Wander along the harbour side road and check out all the sights and incredible smells of the wholesale warehouses and shops that line the road and check out the oils and perfumes in the smaller shops Turmeric, cardamom, nutmeg cloves star anise . They are all in abundance as well as the ubiquitous handicraft shops

The Old Jewish quarter, lovely shops no hassle, great antique shops and cafes/ restaurants.Spice shops in this part of town do not reduce their prices too much with haggling making it exceptionally bad value for money.over all a Good place to walk around.

The Mattancherry Palace is full of information. The wall paintings are awesome and well preserved. The artifacts, the images, the costumes, materials, weapons used in those time etc. Overall a good experience.

Dutch palace was ok. Old history repeated. Museum was very small. Jewish synagogue was good. Go if you like history. Lot of art ware shops. Shop with caution . Most are not genuine.

This is a very old palace. This used to be the residence of the royal family in Kerala. It is very old building and has been converted to a museum. It is great for people interested in history. Teenagers and youngsters may find this place very boring. Also the place is very crowded.
