Cochin, departure 18.00 hrs

Cochin is one of the oldest settlements to be established by Europeans and is regarded as one of the most important historic ports in the world, the centre of the worldwide trade in spices. The fishing nets at Fort Kochi are worth a visit: lined up along the shore, their lifting beams still sway above the water and the nets continue to bring in catches of fish. The township of Mattancherri is also a worthwhile destination with sights including the Dutch Palace and the Pardesi Synagogue. From Cochin, overland excursions will take you to the famous Taj Mahal mausoleum and to Delhi. Delhi consists of two parts: Old Delhi with all the atmosphere of the Orient, and New Delhi, planned and constructed by the British and the capital of the country. Of special interest in Old Delhi are the Jama Masjid Mosque and the Red Fort.
