“Fun shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Shops are good, shopping easy, no pressure... not much anyway. I thought the standard of items for sale was pretty good. It was a very picturesque street to wander down - I felt quite safe the whole time in Fort Cochin.

“Nice place for an afternoon stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Lots of shops, cafes and hotels - one where you can pay to use the pool if the day gets too hot for you (Grande Residencia Hotel). Avoid Princess Inn hotel as there are thieves working at the hotel. I would also avoid the facing restaurant which is convenient but pretty average and the service wasn't so hot - I think the waiters were high or something. Head up to Dal Roti (just past the parade grounds) for some incredibly tasty North Indian food. 5 mins away but worth the stroll.

It a street in the core of the Kochi more tourist district. The street is packed with shops and cafes, some of which are nice.

“Don't miss a visit here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Great place to walk around and see all the stores. Make sure you really want to buy before you do. Good to think and come back later. Great variety of things for sale., mainly Kashmiri. Good local supermarket for snacks and drinks.
Our favourite travel agent Charlie at Carnival tours is based here. Good for advice on every tour in the area. Booked our tours, drivers and train trips. We were very happy.
My daughter and I went to the beauty parlour here and had various treatments for good prices, including excellent massage and pedicure. All the locals friendly and helpful. We waked this way every day of our stay and got into conversation with many locals. Will return on our next trip.
