If you are charmed by colourful bazaars; if you like discovering local food and culture, you will thoroughly enjoy an exploration of Ernakulam's Broadway area – the traditional nerve-centre of business in the city, which appeals due to its knack of selling everything under the sun and its proximity to one of Cochin’s most popular promenades - Marine Drive.

In this Tour:
• Take a public ferry to reach Broadway and Marine drive from Fort Kochi and enjoy breathtaking views of the backwaters during the twenty minute ride.
• After disembarking at Ernakulam Jetty, we will walk along the picturesque Marine Drive promenade, until we reach the bazaar.
• We will explore the car-free pedestrian zone by foot, travelling through several winding streets, seeing fruit and vegetable shops, spice shops, a bustling fish market, cloth merchants, hardware stores, footwear shops, grains and oils, etc. which offer a great insight into traditional Kerala cooking.
• Lining the streets, many of these shops have long established reputations, with third or fourth generation family owners. Here, you can learn about the way these businesses work.
• The walk ends at the CSI Immanuel Church, the oldest Protestant church in Ernakulam.

TOUR NOTES: Please note, the food on the street is delicious but does not meet national or international hygiene standards. Although we only go to very popular places, with good local reputations, these stalls do not cook using bottled water or wash their utensils with it. So eating street food is always risky. If you prefer not to risk it, but still want to see what it’s all about, then at the end of the walk, we can take you to Haldirams where you can try chaats and other popular dishes in safe and hygienic conditions.
