When to fly

Tourists are attracted to Cochin all year long, but the city sees its peak travel season between the months of December, January and February, when rain is scarce and temperatures hover in the mild 20s. December also sees many booking flights to Cochin as the city comes alive with annual festivals. One such example is the Cochin Carnival – one of the greatest festivals of the year, for Cochin residents, although this event is attended by locals and tourists alike. People flock to the colourfully decorated Fort Kochi to witness unique games, people dressed in fancy dress, a massive procession which is led by an embellished elephant, music and fireworks.

The Indira Ghandi Boat Race, also held during December, is an annual water sport event and festival. Join the other locals and tourists, watching and cheering as the oarsmen race along the backwaters of Cochin.

Cheap flights to Cochin can be found during the off-season months of July, August and September, when monsoon rains fall over the city. The shoulder season months of March and April can be a good time to find cheap flights to Cochin as well, although temperatures are at their highest, around 26 to 31 degrees Celsius and the weather can be rainy at times.

Why visit

The historic port city of Cochin is the perfect starting point for exploring the Indian state of Kerala. The islands that make up Cochin (or Kochi) offer a taste of everything: history, culture, international influence and local culinary delights. The only real question after you’ve booked your flights is where to begin exploring the charming city.

Many travellers taking flights to Cochin choose to start their visit by exploring the historic Fort Kochi on the peninsula of Mattencherry. Here, gargantuan Chinese fishing nets line the seashore as old colonial buildings line the neighbourhood’s alleys and streets. Basilicas and churches remain as testaments to Cochin’s Portuguese past, while the remains of the VOC Gate and David Hall reflect the Dutch side of Cochin’s history.

Certainly, Fort Kochi is a far cry from the cosmopolitan mainland of Ernakulam, where highlights include the Ernakulam Shiva Temple and the shopping mecca known as Marine Drive. Also worth the trip in Cochin is the Hill Palace Museum, where visitors can see the incredible collection of 95 diamonds and thousands of other precious stones that make up the Cochin Royal Crown. While visiting Cochin, the local beaches are a must, too. Cherai Beach is a particularly popular choice for its scenic views and safe shores.
