Being the economic capital of the southern state of Kerala, Kochi is endowed with numerous hospitals, medical centers and other wellness treatment hubs. All these hospitals are equipped with the latest in medical equipment and treatment modules to offer the best healthcare support to tourists opting for pocket-friendly, but top-notch medical treatments. Well connected to most other tourist spots in Kerala, Kochi is the easiest city to get into Kerala. It is also well-connected by land, air and waterways making it one of the very few destinations connected with all these transport modes. This ensures that people who are opting for medical tourism can also pair their treatment regimens and vacation itinerary effectively, thanks to well-connected roads.
Kochi is also one of the most preferred travel destinations in Kerala. It is blessed with various tourist locations including beautiful beaches, splendid backwaters, commercial hubs, palaces and historical monuments…something to please everyone! All of them blend in tandem with the modern outlook of the city, while still being traditional enough to retain its pseudonym ‘the Queen of Arabia’. A couple of days into Kochi and its vibrant culture, and you will understand why it deserves to be named so!
The towns of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry are a must visit for all travelers. They are enriched with beautiful beaches and uber-cool streets that still tell tales of its colonial past. If you want in on a cruise on the Vembanad Lake, Marine Drive is the right place. It is a wide walkway where one can just sit and idle away the hours enjoying the panoramic beauty of the Lake and the setting sun. Other must-visit places include the Bolgatty Palace, the Hill Palace, Santa Cruz Basilica and the spectacular Cherai beach.
Just like other parts of Kerala, Kochi also has a mild climate. It is moderately humid and comfortable all through the year. The temperature ranges from 20°C to 35°C during the year with the best months to visit Kochi being from September till the arrival of the Monsoon in June.
