good atmosphere. Can spend time with your family and kids here. Near to beach. Good hotels are there nearby which serves quality food with recent price. You will get cycles for rent. You can use that to explore more. Childrens park's there. Many shopping options as well.

Odd to think that Princess Street is an attraction in itself? Not sure why. It is really just a short little road, with a couple of shops. Really, it should be considered as part of the overall Fort area. Ok, so about Princess street : 1. About 400m long 2. Got a few tourist shops 3. Got a couple of... More

I was staying near Princess Street so visited a lot. I found an excellent money changer, good shops, and some good restaurants/cafes too.

Good items no doubt, but highly pricey and no bargaining. Would suggest to just have a look around and buy the same things at a highly cheaper rate (with bargaining) from MG Beach.

Princess Street is a short walk from our hotel at Burgar Street. . The prices here are higher than elsewhere and you need to haggle to get a bargain. Stanley Wilson's travel agency is located here; we booked our 3D2N Munnar tour here and it was one of the highlights of our trip. There are restaurants and cafes on both... More

Great for busy shopping. Haggle! You will get taken from shop to shop by the owners as they all are from the same families it seems but this is the place to get bargains if you are prepared to stand your ground when you haggle.

It's a beautiful street, it combines perfectly well the specific beauty of Keralite architecture with spots that cater for foreign tastes. It can be a bit commercial but it is, nevertheless, a charming spot in Fort Cochin.

Very tempting street. You want to buy everything they sell here. Small street built in Portuguese style having restaurants and shops both of the sides.

It was my favourite street in 2012 and it is again on this trip. Some great cafe's either on the street or just off it with a wide range of shops. It was sad to see the cigar merchant shop had gone but times do move on I suppose. As before the traders here are very aid back and you... More
