The Chinese nets are characteristic of Kochi but felt this place is overrated! Good only in photographs and the fish out there is way too expensive!

Beautiful Place. Go early morning or in the evening. Ask one of those guys to let you in. They will, for a small amount. And do buy the fresh catch and enjoy a nice meal. Totally worth it.

A couple of months ago, I spent about a month in Kerala , India. It was in Cochin that I took one of the very best photos I ever have taken. I was a professional nature photographer for 40 years. I admired the sunset with the fishing nets in the foreground many times. But, on one very special night, I... More

A very smarter way of catching fishes. It's a see-saw. On one side, there is a net and other side there are weights. So when the weights go up, net goes down. After some 15 mins, get the weights down and the net comes up with the fishes. After all a Chinese way.
