“The Chinese came and so did the nets!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The Chinese nets in Kochi are very unique. Especially, they proved to be excellent for photography. I got to know a lot about Kochi from a lot of history written at the Mattancherry
Palace which proved to be a good learning experience.

“Unique”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

In front of us they dipped the nets in the water and when pulled out there were quite a few fish on the nets, so also jelly fish. We even tried our hand at pulling the net out of water. Interesting.

“TRADITIONAL AND AMAZING TOO!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

During our Cochin tour ,We were not exited to visit this place but when we reached near the Chinese fishing net we were very astonished to see it. Because the technology ,in use,was very old but scientific .This place drag you back in vasco-da-Gama age of ship and voyage.If anybody visit the Cochin ,he should visit it surely.If you are allergic with Fish-smell then go with a nose mask.
