Kochittes love celebrating festivals regardless of religion or caste. Some of our best childhood memories come from getting invited to your friend's place to eat biriyani for Eid, eat rum Cakes and drink wine for Christmas and eat a sumptuous sadhya(more payasam) for Onam.
Kochi is the sunset spot
There are many locations in Kochi where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. Enjoying the sunset from the top of the lighthouse at Vypin or you can just sit on the benches at the Queen’s Way at pachalam and enjoy the sunset with a glass of tea or coffee or ice cream or bajis with songs playing in the background.
