A wide range of things to do from visiting historical and religious sites to markets and shops. From the square to Jew street it's worth a visit. Shops are willing to haggle, people there are friendly and good natured and there is a lot of good fun in this. Made a couple of visits over a few days and had... More

It has a port from where the cruises to Lakshwadeep islands set sail. All luxury liners also berth here. It is a thinly populated island with a lazy ambiance.

The entire island is owned by the Cochin Port Trust and hence no one can purchase any land here but only lease it from CPT. Though a creation by chance, since there is a restriction in ownership, the area... More

The island is man made, I went there with family, the waterside road is wonderful for joggers and children's park is ok, as it didn't look well maintained. I went there in the evening and the sunset view was breathtaking.

One gets to this place by bus or boat from Ernakulam mainland. Surrounded by the lovely backwaters and lots of greenery, this is a place with a quite, unhurried charm of its own. Major hotel chains have their properties here. Great place for a walk around.
