Today arrive at Cochin International Airport. Meet and Greet by ‘Contento’ representative who will be waiting for you outside the arrival terminal. The representative will assist you to the cab assigned for you.  Your 07 day tour in Kerala starts with your drive to your hotel in Cochin. 

This lovely seaside city is flanked by the Western Ghats on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west. Its proximity to the equator, the sea and the mountains provide a rich experience of a moderate equatorial climate. Strictly speaking, Cochin is a small town. But, Cochin has outgrown its original bounds and is now the general name given to much of the region adjoining the original town, which now includes Cochin, Fort Kochi, Mattanchery, Ernakulam and many other nearby towns and villages.

On arrival, check in at the hotel and later proceed for a sightseeing tour of Cochin. Below are the places you will be covering in your short tour of Cochin.   

  • Jewish Synagogue (Closed on Friday, Saturday and on Jewish Holidays)

Jewish Synagogue, situated at one end of the Jew Street in the Jew Town enclave of Mattancherry in Fort Kochi. This synagogue was built in 1568 by the Malabar Yehudans or Cochin Jewish community.

  • The Dutch Palace (Closed on Friday)

The Mattancherry Palace is one of the finest examples of the Kerala style of architecture mixed with colonial influences. The Portuguese built it as a gift to King Veera Kerala Verma.

  • Chinese fishing nets

Legend has it that the famous Chinese explorer, Zheng He, introduced the Chinese Fishing Nets to the fishermen in Kochi over 500 years ago. Even though he would leave, these would become staple sights in these parts.

  • St. Francis Church (Closed on Sunday during Mass)

It is here that the famous explorer, Vasco-da-Gama, was originally buried. His remains would be taken back 14 years later but to this day, the exact spot is clearly marked.

Later back to hotel.

Thekkady – Alleppey (190 kms / 4.5 hrs)

Today morning after breakfast from the hotel, drive to Alleppey, also known as Venice of the East. 

Alappuzha – most still call it Alleppey – is the hub of Kerala's backwaters, home to a vast network of waterways and more than a thousand houseboats. Wandering around the small but chaotic city centre and bus-stand area, with its modest grid of canals, you'd be hard-pressed to agree with the 'Venice of the East' tag.

On arrival embark a private houseboat which will be waiting for you. Enjoy traditional lunch and dinner on board. The cruise today will be from 1200 noon to 1700 hrs.

Houseboats in Kerala, south India, are huge, slow-moving barges used for leisure trips. They are a reworked model of Kettuvallams (in the Malayalam language, Kettu means "tied with ropes", and vallam means "boat"), which, in earlier times, were used to carry rice and spices from Kuttanad to the Kochi port. Kerala houseboats were considered a convenient means of transportation.
