Kochi, also known as Cochin, is a major port city on the south-west coast of India. Kochi with its diverse culture and global outlook has been at the heart of trade routes between the Arabian Peninsular, Africa and Asia for millennia. Traditionally characterised by the spice routes Kochi is rapidly evolving as a hub for innovation.
Serenity in the South
Serene Kochi has been drawing traders, explorers and travellers to its shores for over 600 years. Nowhere else in India could you find such an intriguing mix: giant fishing nets from China, a 400-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese houses and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. The result is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast.
