Begin your day by losing yourself in the arty lanes and streets of Fort Kochi, and then proceed to St. Francis Church, the oldest European church in India - built in 1503. While web sources and Google Trips mention that the church is open on Saturdays, this is incorrect. The church is open on Sundays for two morning services, from 8 AM to around 11 AM.
After an amazing experience of a stay on the houseboat, we bid goodbye to Alleppey and started our journey towards Kochi our last day, we reached here around 12 and left to check out some famous things around. We went to see the kochi Fort and the market around it, it's just along the Arabian sea, beautiful locations, it's famous of its Chinese fishing nets. It was really something new to see. We also Visited St. Francis Church one of the oldest churches in Kochi, with it's old world charm. We also had a plan to visit the Jews Synagogue, however it was closed on that day so we missed it. There are a lot of stalls near the beachside where you will get fresh fish, you can select the size and fish and ask them to cook a preparation of you choice, it was one of the best experiences to have fish by the bay, while hearing the sea waves and feeling the breeze.  Later in the evening we also visited one of the biggest mall Lulu mall, and another uniquely beautiful and vast church that I have seen in my life, St George's old church Edapally.  The statues and the work inside the church will keep you spellbound, it's a must visit in kochi. So this was the end of our last night in kochi and next day it was time to leave this amazing place, it was a great experience to get to know keralas culture, mouth watering local cuisine, the warm and helpful people over there and not forgetting the many experiences that will last with me forever. I forgot to mention it was my first flight ever.

Our first stop was at Fort Kochi beach which was nearby to our hotel only. We come to know that its one of the posh areas of Kochi. All the bunglows in vicinity were well maintained and beautiful.  Here for the first time I saw Chinese fishing nets.
