Get to know Kochi with Viator

The atmospheric port town of Kochi is more than a gateway to Kerala’s languid beaches and backwaters: It’s a treasure trove of culture, with layers of Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Arab, Chinese, and European influence embedded in its architecture, places of worship, and cuisine. But Keralan heritage lives on in the city''s colorful Kathakali dance performances and spice markets. Kochi is a short ferry ride from its busier, modern counterpart, Ernakulam, among other islands.
