Upon arrival at Cochin airport, we will meet you and accompany you to your hotel to check in and freshen up.
Cochin is a vibrant city with a lot of sightseeing objectives, so on this first day of your Kerala Ayurveda tour we will spend some time exploring the attractions, depending on your priorities. You can visit the Kochi Fort and the Dutch Mattancherry Palace and witness the many colonial influences that have shaped the city of today: the Portuguese St Francis Church is where Vasco da Gama the explorer is buried, and it is also India’s oldest European church, while the Jewish Synagogue was built in 1568 and displays fantastic chandeliers and tiled walls.
The Dutch Palace has amazing murals which depict Hindu temple art and the Hill Palace is the largest archaeological museum in Kerala.
Time depending, you can also pay a visit to the Chinese fishing nets brought to Kochi / Cochin by the Chinese explorer Zheng He. Finally, take in the sounds, smells and flavours of the spice market in the evening.
At the end of your day, you can relax at your hotel, have dinner and enjoy a restful evening.

Our destination today is Alleppey, where you will have the opportunity to experience life on a houseboat of your own. The houseboats used to be used by fishermen through the canals of this “Venice of the East”, and you can now enjoy a relaxing day sailing through the beautiful backwaters, taking in the scenery and the villages you will be passing through.
