Cochin (often locally known as "Kochi") is a bustling, busy city in Kerala, south-west India, made up of different districts, the most picturesque of which is Fort Cochin. This ancient port has been influenced by traders from the Middle East, China and Europe for over 600 years, and now resembles a quiet and watery 18th-century village surrounded by lush greenery. Itís varied past is reflected in its steep-roofed bungalows and colonial residences, its spice and antique shops and its cathedral, palaces and synagogue.
Five minutes' walk from the centre is the harbour, with its distinctive row of Chinese fishing nets, and the Arabian Sea with its long stretches of beach overhung by forests of coconut palms.
