The coastal city is more an exclusive vibe, rather than a tourist destination. The culture that exists here is mixed and diverse. At a single locality, for example, Fort Kochi had been co-existed by Jews, Tamil Brahmins, Jains, Konkanis, Christians and even Buddhists. Most of the travel packages that tourists planning to visit are kick-started at this place. Being known as a significant trade centre ever since the Portuguese had set their foot in Kerala, Cochin is addressed as ‘Queen of Arabian Sea.’ Now, if walking through the colonial streets of Fort Kochi, one could get to see all those historical monuments built mostly by Dutch, then Jews, British and Portuguese. The most attractive examples are St Francis Church, Dutch Palace, Bastion Bungalow, Santa Cruz Basilica, Bolgatty Palace and Jewish Synagogue. Peaceful evenings of Kochi can be spent by Marine Drive walkway by the banks of Vembanad Lake with Chinese fishing nets. Some adorable beaches that are located in Cochin are Kuzhupilly Beach, Cherai Beach and Puthuvype Beach. Furthermore, the palace where the erstwhile Cochin Kingdom had dwelled in Thripunithara, has been converted to Hill Palace Museum. It exhibits old royal ornaments and weapons used by the royals.
