People don’t say that Kerala is one of the favourite places to be at for nothing. Not only is it one of the coolest holiday destinations but it is also culturally rich. It is the land where people celebrate many festivals with pomp and ceremony regardless of what religion they belong to. There are many things that Kerala is particularly famous for. They include the wonderful backwaters and beaches, the cool and quaint hill stations, the intriguing villages, the hills and mountains, the swaying palm trees, the never ending seas and oceans, the beautiful songs and dances, the elaborate cultures, and so much more. Kerala is truly heaven on earth for many people from all over the country and also from other parts of the world. There is much to do and see. Many people often mistake Kochi to be the capital city of Kerala when in truth, Trivandrum is the capital. This is because Kochi tends to come to the forefront more in the minds of people when they think of Kerala.
Fort Kochi is one of the places in Kerala that has a lot of colonial influences. As a matter of fact it is that place that is home to one of the few, rare, surviving synagogues in the country. The streets are clean and narrow and there is much to do here. Let us examine them further. You can get to Fort Kochi either by road which is a much longer way or else you can take the ferry from M.G. road and in about 30 minutes you will reach Fort Cochin. From there, you can take an auto or a bus to the beach. A few kilometers before reaching beach you can take a walk which means that you can spend some time shopping. Beware of the shop keepers though because they can overcharge for the things. There are many things that you can choose, such as post cards, decorative pieces, jewellery, and other such things.
