This old area of Kochi is fascinating for its old colonial era buildings and narrow streets full of activity. There are many tourist shops but they are not too annoying. Also many antique shops - some artefacts even look genuine. Also plenty of spice shops, but they are a rather expensive way of buying spices. Mixed in with these are many of the original trading places and this is the best part of Mattancherry. Keep a look out for side streets leading to the water where there are many fishing boats looking like Venetian gondolas, a design dating back to the Portuguese era
