Kochin is a melting pot of culture from as far as Arabia, China, Portugal, the Netherlands and Britain. The bustling port city is enriched with multi ethnic inhabitants and culture. The famous Chinese fishing nets along the sea shore of Fort Kochi are built by the Chinese traders who came here in search of the spice route. 
Alappuzha: The water locked Alappuzha, is part of the famous backwater country - captivating natural scenery of interconnecting, labyrinthine canals, lagoons, lakes and endlessly beautiful Arabian sea shoreline. This is boat country. Boats are sewed into every aspect of life here… boats and canoes for transportation, house-boats for tourists and the famous gigantic snake boat races for celebration.
