Some great restaurants but also small shops, cafes, travel agents etc. Quite busy but still manageable.

I spent a lot of time on and around Princess Street during my time in Kochi. There are many good cafes and shops. It's really close to the Chinese Fishing nets and other sights. Stop here for lunch or a quick refreshment!

Lovely area for a walk, very quiet with a beautiful atmosphere and nice earthy/grass smell! Lots of boutique shops, homestays and ayurvedic clinics.

I would not make a trip specifically to this street, although if in the area it is definitely worth a browse. Near the Chinese Fishing Nets, the square and St Francis Church. Lots of tourist shops and restaurants and activity.

A typical hive if tourist activity cantered around the usual amalgam of gift shops, souvenir sellers and other tourist cantered business. Be judicious and shop around. There are bargains to be had!

This is a very attractive - and accordingly touristy - little street. The only remaining "original" street from Cochin's colonial days, it has a number of pretty colonial buildings which are now shops and restaurants.

Princess street is quite a busy little place, with a lot of restaurants and hotels crammed in, along with little shops offering spices.The place is sort of the happening area in the city with so many restaurants and souvenir shops nearby....
