A nice little street to wander around and window shop, some great shops worth a visit but need bargaining skills. Otherwise take the ferry (Rps 25!) to Ernakulum and shop where the locals go.

We lived at a home stay near princess street. It has so many heritage homes which have been converted into homestays. Excellent facilities and lots of eating places make staying here a delight.

The only place we saw Western tourists but it was nice wandering down the street in the late afternoon. Little shops selling clothing and cafes. I was expecting a lot more bustle and a lot more harrassment. Nothing like Matancherry had been in the morning.

nice shops, worth a visit. Some shop keepers are very keen to get you into their shops and felt like a broken record when I kept saying no thanks or later as I like to choose where i go and not feel I have to go somewhere but apart from that it is a nice area to walk round

Like the place for its liveliness. You suddenly feel that burst of energy inside. People enjoying sea food at roadside restaurants, families enjoying their walks, and kids playing around.

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!

This is probably one of the most lighted and happening places in fort kochi. There re many cafés, restaurants and home stays on this short stretch. Lot of shops to buy souvenirs.
