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

Tourist centre. Some good cafes and small shops which were a lot cheaper for textiles etc. than at the smarter shops.

main street of Kochi, crows, restaurants, and shops as far as eyes can see. had a nice little walk here couple of times, harassed by a guy with Afro hair who tended one of the outdoor restaurants (your typical Indian experience, really).

In the middle of Cochin you can visit princess street and feel like you're (almost) back in the western world. Good place to rest and find a beer parlour. A few vendors and panhandlers but nothing annoying. Would recommend if you're needing a break and some shade.

Not TOO much hassle! I found the shops I did visit to be interesting, but it is not a very long street so not that much to see. Money changing possible and a good cup of Masala tea

Princess Street is the main thorough fare street, it seems like. Many stores of all kinds line the street on one side. A very busy place. Sorry to see several homeless there begging, bless their hearts. What's great/best part of street is viewing Edinburgh Castle and other wonderful buildings up on the hill. Second best is the hidden gem almost... More

Shos here can be pricey, but the side street just up from the Tourist Police Kiosk...seem to have the same things at reasnable rpices. They pay less rent. So if I was gong again, I'd shop more in the side streets. Take care when buying scarves that what you buy is genuine, also jewellery. Shop around.

Tiny relatively tidy street with touristy shops, hotels. As attraction of its own, it is not something very impressive. There are many nice colonial buildings everywhere in Fort.
