Waterfront with a hint of bohemia
Chance upon a Kerala that is quite unlike Kerala. Fort Kochi takes you to a land far-off from the rest of India in its flavour. There is the beach, lighthouse, ocean-liners, oil carriers, little cafes, continental eating out places and a hint of Bohemia. This is where travellers from all over the world meet up with like-minded people who took the plunge to discover India and Kerala and relish the joy in discovering Fort Kochi!
Fort Kochi is a fun part of Kochi to be in. This is where the sea is with the coast dotted with boutique hotels, heritage hotels, swanky modern ones and homestays. The main shopping area has a Goa feel though it is different. The lanes are full of shops, Italian food cafes, art galleries, cultural shows and more. The place has a certain vibe to it that draws most visitors here to wind down after a day of sightseeing and shopping.
Amble into Kashi Art Cafe for contemporary art work and have a slice of the best Lemon Cheese Cake and good coffee. Step into Dal Roti for no-frills dining on North Indian Food or simply get a beer at the OLd Lighthouse Bristow Hotel, which is right on the beach and watch ships at sea. Dive into the many lanes at Jew Town for antiques pieces to take back home. Fusion food and culture all add to the allure of the place.
