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.

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.
