About goSTOPS Kochi

Kochi is the bustling commercial port city of Kerala and is inarguably the ideal place, to begin with, to explore the diversity and beauty of god’s own country, Kerala. From Chinese fishing nets to the old churches and the quaint Jewish parts of the town here, you can have it all. Laze around in the arty cafes, explore the famous beaches and experience a colonial-era feel with cool winds from the backwaters, that soothe the nerves of backpackers sailing across the city.
