Kochi City Guide


Kochi - Kochi is a merry mix of the ancient and the modern, a bustling city in the throes of becoming a metro, yet enveloped in antiquity and history. New developments range towards the upcoming Vallarpadam Terminal and the IT Park to generate huge economic benefits. Yet, the city has been recognized for its rich cultural background and heritage. Clearly demarcated into two regions - Ernakulam and Fort Kochi (Old Kochi) - and sandwiched in between is the man-made Wilingdon Island. In truth, Kochi is an electric blend of life in various shades and flavours, the new and the old, technology and culture.
