A slice of history

Old historical street in Fort Kochi with a colonial feel. Interesting souvenir shops. Good place to walk around with plenty of eateries and watering holes.

A street where everything sells at 20x price and only $ paying guests are welcomed! A best place to avoid as everything is overpriced and they expect you to negotiate form 20 times to 10 times price level, beyond that they will move over to next customer....Better purchase items from MG road at reasonable price including the Govt run emporium....

Ok, so it has some nice restaurants and little graffiti on the walls, but there's nothing special really. You'll have to walk by this street when you are in Fort area anyways.

This street is close to many restaurants and touristic main attractions. It also has a variety of luxury shops plus one budget one. Interisting souvenirs in this last one.

One of the attractions for the tourists coming to Fort Cochin. This street has many home stays, hotels, eateries shops and street vendors. You can walk around the place and is relatively safe. The police aid post is available at one end of the street and place is clan and tidy
