  1. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Cochin, India
    The famous traditional Chinese fishing nets are so-called because it was the Chinese who first introduced this style of fishing to Kerala. If you want a detailed look at their workings you'll need to tip the fishermen - I felt the 100 rupees we paid …
  2. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Cochin, India
    Our guide proposed an extra stop to see the dhoby wallahs at Dhoby Khana, still using the traditional washing methods employed here when the Dutch Army established the facility in 1720 and brought in workers from Tamil Nadu and Malabar to wash their …

  7. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Kovalam, India
    For me, one of the pleasures of our stay at the Travancore Heritage Hotel (as must be true too of others in this area) is its proximity to a beach used not only by tourists but also locals. I have read opposing views on this subject, and clearly some…
  8. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Kovalam, India
    On one morning of our stay at the Travancore Heritage hotel we took our cameras and went for a walk through the village on its doorstep, Chowara. The friendly locals took no issue with my camera, and several willingly posed. Sights such as a small Hi…
