121 # Plan to visit the tourist attractions of Kochi

I am planning to cover all the tourist attractions of Kochi, and doing some research to plan my photography trips. Here are some interesting facts and places (established) to visit. Many of them I have visited earlier. This time I want to visit them, with an intent to blog.

About Kochi

Kochi, the commercial town of Kerala, a vibrant, lively city of palm green filled with interesting artefacts in every corner. The combination of mainland Ernakulam, Willingdon island, Mattancherry, Fort Kochi, Vypeen island, Bolgatty palace, Ernakulam is the business and tourist hub of Kerala.  There is lot more to Kochi than just a city skyline. Kochi encompasses a wide range of natural landscapes even before the Arabs, Chinese, Dutch, British and the Portuguese sea surfers followed the sea route to Kochi and left their impression on the land. Kochi blends it's rich cultural heritage with the comforts swaying in the breeze over backwaters.
