Viva Fort Kochi

Again, another gem in Fort Kochi. Princess street is a lovely place to walk, browse and have coffee on an idle afternoon.

An awesome street to walk around. You get to see a lot of homestays and heritage inns in this area. It lies in the heart of Fort Cocin

After landing at Fort Kochi, wandering through the streets of Princess street was a throw back in time. Clearly, one can see the modern creeping in, but every now and then, there is a architectural feature that signifies how this part of the world was touched by a wide range of cultures from the Europeans(Dutch, Portuguese and the British) and...

We strolled through Princess Street and went into Taj Antiques just off there in Quinrose Street. Berna was very knowledgable about all the striking items she is selling and even gave us quotes for shipping some fabulous bits back to the UK. Very helpful lady and not pushy for a sale at all.

Some cute cafes and shops and all the usual tourist tat. But it has some allure. Imagine if it was paved and all businesses had simple planter boxes outside bring colour and perfume to the atmosphere It could then beat its rival in Edinburgh ! Was not going to suggest any fake pipers,maybe a snake charmer!

A couple of shops, hidden bars and not a lot else. The attraction here is the warm, low key buzz. If staying in the area, this quicky becomes a very comfortable home from home.

For me the Princess street is typical of the area around Fort Kochi, with little shops selling souveneirs,spices,clothes etc. very similar to the Jew town area.Lots of restaurants in the vicinity so travellers looking for mementos of their Kochi visit can spend their time wandering here. Remember to bargain hard!

What a lovely street this is. Lots of businesses selling their wares with a good variety. Some nice places to eat, and if you're looking for a western coffee you'll find one here.

Filled with restaurants and antique stores - Do take care of your belongings as pick pockets are quite common. Do bargain for the antiques - they are not necessarily antiques!
