The chinese fishing nets is really cool and interesting to see, they people who works with them gladly ask you to join them, afterwards the get really annoying and want money, i tried to give them 100 rs , but that wasn't good enough. I hate dealing with people like these.

Very nice park and interesting fishing technique. The catch is small but fisherman still have fish fresh for sale. At the park you can find fresh coconutwater and other souvenirs.

These nets are still used to catch fish although there is no commercial fishing done. Any catch is kept and eaten locally or sold to tourists however the main source of income is from the government who subsidise the fishermen to keep up the tradition just for a tourist show. The fishermen will also give you a demonstration of their... More

I travel a fair bit, and I am a sea food monger and I love to cook, that being said the Chinese Fishing Nets at Fort Kochin come as a welcome treat. You walk by the sea shore where the days fresh catch is up for grabs, at throw away prices, then you walk across the street to a line... More

If you like boats or fishing this will be fun for you :) Especially as most of the fishermen let you come up onto the boat and haul in their catch (for a tiny tip of 20rupees). Around the area are lots of touristy clothes and crafts stores selling some beautiful things.

Heavy tourist badgering however, but if you don't stand for it, and just enjoy watching the fishing, I believe it is great. The nets operate at night too. Watching a full net of fresh fish being sold to... More

Look, this is interesting historically, and they are still in use. However they are also a money making machine as any unwary tourist who gets close to them is assailed by lots of touts pressuring them to pay. Suggest you stand on the promenade and watch others being pressured. If you stand to one side and watch you can get... More
