The Kerala Government and the local people have jointly messed up this place. The local attractions "you buy (fish), we cook" is unattractive, as they are completely done in unhygenic and dirty shacks - the place is filled with bottles to plastic to sheer domestic waste... a complete deplorable condition of a wonderful hangout...

this place is famous for the Chinese fishing net market... also there are lot of fishers who are fishing. it was a nice experience to watch them work as a team and catch fish. there is market to buy lot of accessories like hat, sun shades etc.. also you can enjoy the crowd by sitting in open restaurants.

Take the opportunity to pull on the fishing nets and see your catch - great fun. The fishermen expect a tip but best way to do this is give an amount that they can share amongst themselves

Chinese fishing nets is a very good place to visit. Early morning after 6AM the fisherman's come to this place and they start to catch fish using this nets, its really mind blowing to watch. We can buy fish and many sea creatures from there for fresh.. so when u visit Kochi take a visit to chinese nets.

Is near a crowded junction of Kochi. It can be quickly seen but nothing more to do after that. most likely you would head to many attractions in the vicinity

Cochin was a very interesting place owing to the different cultures but most people and places are the same. We obtained the services of a Tut-Tut driver who was most informative about the place. We paid $10 per hour but I am sure you can do much better if you tried. We visited many places but the Fishing nets were... More

this is strip along the beach which is quiet amazing view and ambience around it. you could get an overwhelming view of the sunset across the beach and is best enjoyed with your closed ones. appropriate time i would suggest is around 18:00
