A covered walking street with many shops, stores and places to eat. The merchants put the welcome mat out for the cruise ships in port and some offered free watermelon, tea and treats when we were there.

Enjoyed some of the shops in kochi, including bakery with some excellent bread...also. I sited nearby Sunday farmers market that was really interesting.

The long covered streetwalks are a great way to wander in comfort, but as a shopping destination I wouldn't rate it well at all.

Even in the heat with the roof covering, it can be warm. Nice mix of shops and stores for shopping and a quick lunch.

We were visiting Kochi from a cruise ship. We had shuttled to the bus depot a couple blocks away and started walking. We missed the mall the first time we passed it because we were on the other side of the street. We made a course correction and entered this shopping district - essentially a covered outdoor mall. We walked the length of the mall, stopping at several stores along the way. What took me by surprise was that at two points in the "mall" there were streets with vehicular traffic that crossed right through the pedestrian areas. I was lost in thought and almost walked in front of a moving truck. Vehicular traffic aside, this was an interesting experience for us. We browsed among the stores and were surprised at how much of the merchandise for sale was either jewelry or personal care products. We were also surprised that the stores have some of their merchandise displayed out in front of the stores. This told me that the Japanese are more honest than some other cultures. If you are in town and don't have a tour booked, this is a worthwhile experience.…
