  • Experience the real local life of Cochin during an Ethnic tour

    Start with the visit of the famous Chinese Fishing Nets of Cochin. The huge cantilevered Chinese fishing nets that droop towards the waters like over-sized hammocks have become a hallmark that represents Fort Kochi on every postcard... Next stop to the Steam boilers, standing harmlessly at one end of the Kochi Beach. They were once the powerful boilers that pushed a ship across the ocean in Cochin Dry Dock for twenty years from 1956. It used coke, coal and fire wood as fuel. Head to the nearby Fort Immanuel, bastion of the Portuguese in Kochi and build in 1503, it was a symbol of the strategic alliance between the Maharajah of Kochi and the Monarch of Portugal. By 1806 the Dutch, and later the British, had destroyed most of the fort walls and its bastions. Today, remains of this once imposing structure can be seen along the beach. Visit is at the St.Francis CSI Church, the oldest European church in India built in 1503, where the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama was originally buried. Pass by the Santa cruz Basilica, one of the finest and imposing churches in India. Follow your local journey with a tuk tuk ride – the most popular mode of transport among the localities, go along with your local tour and stop at the Dhobi Khana (laundry station), established by the Dutch in 1720 for washing their army's uniforms. A group of washer folk continues to toil as they have done for more than half a century. Continue through the small streets of Mattanchery, and arrive at the Fruit market on Palace road where locals get a variety of fresh and organic produces at bargains prices. Don’t miss a stop at the Spice Market too, where exotic odor of the finest ginger, cloves, cardamom, turmeric and pepper emanate from the spice warehouses lining the street. Make a pause and have one “meter tea” at one of the tea stall. Later on take an opportunity to interact with a Brahmin Family in their home. The Brahmin are the highest of the four Hindu castes of priests and scholars of Vedic literature, their traditional occupation is to conduct rites at marriages, births and other auspicious occasions. While there, you will observe a Kolam demonstration and find out about this traditional custom of drawing in the houses entrance with sparkling powders or fresh flowers, to invite the Goddess Laxmi to bring luck and prosperity.. You will also be invited to a Konkan family in their house to try out some squiggly lines drawn on your hands... Return back to your hotel or your next destination.
