The city of Kochi perfectly reflects the eclecticism of the state of Kerala - mosques stand beside 16th-century Jewish synagogues with 500-year-old Portuguese and Dutch cottages lining the winding streets. And off the coast giant Chinese fishing nets hover over the waters. This fascinating city can be explored on a tour of its many highlights, while in the evening visitors can watch a vibrant Kathakali Dance Show or learn how to prepare southern Indian cuisine at the home of a local family. Kochi also makes a fantastic base for visiting the surrounding backwaters, which can be explored on a day trip from the comfort of a private houseboat.
