Care to carry Kochi home in a souvenir? Remember it by the smell of rich spices that could stock your larder for months, or by handcrafted elephants, Kathakali dancers and snake boats carved from rosewood. Maybe cosy knick-knacks made from coconut shells are your pick, or painted mats and curtains woven from bamboo. Show Kochi off at your next fancy do by sporting a Kerala kasavu sari, or adorn your walls with expansive murals from the city. Round off your shopping spree with a visit to the city’s many malls. Loosen your purse strings, indulge your material cravings and pamper yourself with a traditional ayurvedic spa treatment and massage.
