Create an itinerary including Chinese Fishing Nets
When in Kochi, make a short stop at Fort Kochi to admire Chinese Fishing Nets, representing an authentic fishing method and a landmark of the city. Although their name suggests Chinese heritage, the nets probably originate from Portuguese settlers who had colonies in Southern China. The unusual nets are fixed on bamboo or teak pillars and are lowered into the sea. Take a walk along the beach to admire the famous Kochi vista of the large, hammock-like nets appearing to float in mid-air, or purchase some of the fresh seafood being pulled out of the sea. By using our Kochi (Cochin) attractions planner, you can arrange your visit to Chinese Fishing Nets and other attractions in Kochi (Cochin).

  • Fuxk it its ma hometown
  • It was good experience with amazing construction and working of fishing net. Price of 8 medium size kanaam fish(very popular local fish) is 1000rs. I suggest you to go around 11:30AM to 12:30PM in fish market near fishing net as you will get fresh fish and they cook it there itself.
