Kerala, popularly known and believed as God's Own Country, is an ideal destination for business traveler as well as holidaymaker. The state is blessed with myriad features like dense tropical forests, beautiful beaches, cliffs, rocky coasts, an intricate maze of backwaters, still bays and astounding 44 radiant rivers. Spending days in Kerala is rejuvenating to say the least, especially at the backwater destinations, connected through meandering inland lakes. You can have such an unforgettable experience at the Kochi Backwaters in Kerala.
A string of picturesque and lovely islands, lagoons, small rivulets and swaying coconut palm trees make Kochi a perfect backwaters destination. A conducted cruise on the local ferries through the winding waterways to several quaint spots like the coconut plantations and the coir villages is the main tourist attraction of Kochi. Popular as Queen of the Arabian Sea , Kochi is formed of a group of islands on Lake Vembanad , which opens out into the Arabian Sea to form one of the finest natural harbors in the world.
The ancestral rulers of Kochi with their sophisticated outlook traded goods as well as knowledge with visitors from far off lands. The Arabs, Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch and the British have all left their mark here. The Jewish synagogue , the Dutch Palace , the Chinese fishing nets, etc remain witness to the magnificent European and Asian architecture that once prevailed in this seaport city.
