If you wish to experience this island of history, culture and architecture, here are a few tips:

1. Early mornings, weekdays or late afternoons do the trick: As Fort Kochi is a historic place, you are likely to see large groups of people flocking the streets later in the day or during the weekends. The more relaxed you are, the higher are the chances of you exploring the place and appreciating its beauty.
