Cochin – Queen of the Arabian Sea.
Kochi (Colloquially called Cochin), is the second most important city on the west coast of India. Flanked by the Western Ghats on the east and the Arabian Sea in the west, this small town has outgrown its original bounds to become the most commercial and industrial city in Kerala. A place for a complete family vacation, Kochi is unarguably the ideal starting point for exploring the unplumbed diversity and beauty of Kerala.
The first European colonial settlement in India, Kochi remained the capital of Portuguese India until 1530. Kochi was once an important spice trading center on the Arabian Sea coast from 14th century onwards. Tucked in the beauty of coconut palms and widespread pristine blue waters, this dynamic city falls on the main trade route between Europe and China.
