This particular area was where the boys stood and watched as the girls came out of... More

We liked to talk long walks in the afternoon to the docks and when we returned we like to go through Princess street. It is full of beautiful streets, a tourist office, restaurants and cafés and an incredible book store with all sorts of books, post cards, games, very interesting

Princess street is a shopping district so to speak - completely lined by family run shops. But the best part of the place is the small restaurants/cafes. This is where you can take a break from all the siteseeing, open up your book and take a pause from life. If you are already in fort kochi, a must place to... More

Princess Street is packed with tourist delights: small hotels and lodges, speciality shops and tiny eating places. Well worth a visit and, who knows, you may be tempted to buy a shirt made of Ayurvedic cotton from Walton's or something similar from another store.

Our hotel was here, so we spent time in the shops and the Kochi book shop. Less aggressive shop owners than in some other spots. Nice "antique" shop with reproduction curios.

Princess street is located within the heart of the historical district in Kochi and is walking distance from the beach, historical sights, and great food. It has a number of restaurants and backpacker hotels & hostels. Overall, a great location even if to just spend a couple of hours. Sit in one of the roadside cafes and watch the world... More
