Description

Kochi, formerly known as Cochin, is a laid-back and vibrant city on the tropical Malabar Coast and the best way to discover it is by bike! Join your local guide for this cycling tour of Kochi that will take place in the colonial sights and local hotspots, and leave you completely smitten with the city.

Start at Fort Kochi and head over to the iconic Chinese fishing nets. Witness the early-morning buzz along the waterfront. Pass by the small fish market, a chaotic place in the morning trading rush, before heading into Kochi's main bazaar.

From here, take a truly historic ride into the spice traders area of Bazaar Road, where you will see old streets that are lined with fragrant spice warehouses and colorful stores. Breathe in the smell of ginger, cardamom, cumin, turmeric, and cloves while walking through this atmospheric area. We will stop for a tea or a coffee at a local tea shop and take a moment to talk about the history of Kochi.

Then, proceed to Jew Town where you can take a moment to admire the frescoes adorning the Dutch Palace, and see some of the amazing antique shops in the area. We'll peek inside to see one of the famous snake boats, before exploring more parts of Mattenchery (the Muslim area) and Palace Road (the Hindu area).

In the Hindu area you will see a few temples, as well as vegetable and fruit markets. If you wish, we can stop for some refreshments here, a chance to really take in all the scenery around us.

You will then get back on your bike to cycle back along Kochi's waterfront, heading towards the centre of town. Call into a local laundry to see how the dhobis beat the clothes clean before making the final peddle back towards the heart of Fort Kochi. Before ending this Kochi bike tour, we will go around some of the famous churches in the area, as well as visit the Dutch Cemetery. As the oldest European cemetery in India, the 104 tombs here provide great insight into the lives lead by the Dutch and English migrants in India.
