Kochi (Cochin) — 3 nights

Queen of the Arabian Sea

A flourishing port city and magnet for the spice trade since the 15th century, Kochi (Cochin) proudly bears its distinct international influence and local Keralan culture.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica and Jeevamatha Church. Step out of the city life by going to Alappuzha Beach and Kayaking & Canoeing. When in Kochi (Cochin), make a side trip to see International Coir Museum in Alappuzha, approximately Alappuzha away. Spend the 19th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: make a trip to Chinese Fishing Nets, deepen your understanding at Kerala Kathakali Centre, relax and rejuvenate at Ayuh Ayurveda Spa, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Paradesi Synagogue.
