In the morning after breakfast checkout from houseboat and proceed to Cochin. Set on a magnificent estuary, serene Kochi
has been drawing traders, explorers and travelers to its shores for over 600 years. Nowhere else in India could you find such
an intriguing mix: giant Chinese fishing nets, a 450-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese- and Dutch-era houses
and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. Out of all the places you will see here the most admirable is the
Jewish Synagogue. Also known as Mattancherry Synagogue, it
was built by Jews. What is attractive here is the Glass work,
Chinese titles, Belgian Chandeliers and the wall paintings.The
second place you will visit is the Dutch Palace built by
Portuguese in 1557, as a gift to the then King. A 2 story building,
it has a central courtyard and a number of temples inside it.
Nearby is the Santa Cruz Basilia and St. Francis Church. After
visiting these, we will move on to see the Indian Portugese
Museum, established by Dr. Kurtheera. It has got 5 sections
including Altar, Treasure, Procession, Civil Life and Cathedral.
In the evening we shall take you to Cherai Beach. (En route we
will pass by the Cochin harbor. Here you can see hundreds of
ships fastened in all colours and sizes). It is one of the most
alluring beaches of Cochin. It also happens to be the longest
beach of Cochin. It’s the place where you enjoy the scenic beauty
of beach and the Chinese Fishing Nets which make it an
altogether different place to be in. Made up of teak wood and
bamboo poles, these are famous for the way they are designed.
After Cochin city tour proceed to hotel and check-in.
Overnight stay at hotel.
