Tourist Places
Kochi is full of heritage as well as cultural centres and tourists can also enjoy the beaches and indulge in water sports. Kerala tourism promotes exclusive tours for Kochi that is dotted with various monumental attractions that reveal the Dutch and British influences on Kerala.

Forts And Palaces
The first and foremost name that comes to mind when talking about the forts of Kochi is inevitably Fort Kochi, a timeless legacy of European presence. The Dutch Palace at Mattancherry is an exquisite palace where wall murals have been done using the tempera process of painting.

Religious places
Christianity is pretty much dominant in Kochi and the presence of numerous churches is evidence of this fact. The Santa Cruz Basilica which dates back to 1558, has beautiful paintings on its ceiling. Another famous church is that of St. Francis which is also India's oldest. The tomb of Vasco da Gama too attracts popular interest.

Walking on the beaches of Kochi is the most pleasurable and peaceful experience one can enjoy. The idyllic Cherai beach is perfect for swimming and the presence of dolphins here adds charm to the place.

Other Attractions
The Hill Palace museum, 10 kms from Kochi, is definitely worth a visit. The palace complex consists of 49 buildings built in the traditional architectural style of Kerala and is surrounded by 52 acres of terraced land with a Deer Park and facilities for horse riding. Paintings, murals, manuscripts and sculptures fill the museum. Besides this, the Chinese fishing nets (that can be seen on the harbour), the man-made island of Willingdon and the Jewish synagogue are other popular places to visit in Kochi.

Kochi is a great take-off point for
tourists to make excursions to various other places as well. One can travel to the Alapuzzha beach (70 kms) and spend a night on a houseboat. The Periyar wildlife sanctuary (190 kms is home to a variety of animals while the backwater destination of Kumarakom (88 kms) is the favourite haunt of migratory birds. The hill station of Munnar is 130 kms away.
