Backwaters of Kochi

Kochi allures the tourists with its antiquity – the quaint ambiance and monuments of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry - with its modernity – the bustling MG Road, Broadway and Marine Drive - and finally with its nature’s bounty – the stretch of backwaters.

A ride through the backwaters around Kochi city offer you a great picture of the land, with many islands scattered here and there and  lush greenery along the banks. Another characteristic feature of Kochi visible while on a backwater cruise is the sight of Chinese fishing nets. So when you visit Kochi, hire a tourist boat from Marine Drive and enjoy the beautiful ambiance of backwaters here.
