Cochin welcomed, endured, survives and ultimately surmounted the Portugese, the Dutch and the English who were lured by the bewitching shores of this marvellous natural harbour grown from a fishing hamlet. This city has the symbiotic relationship between land and water and can be best observed during a cruise along 'kayal' between Ernakulam and Perumbalam. Ernakulam is Kochi's modern counterpart on the Kerala mainland. Kochi and Ernakulam are in front of each other across the channel. Cochin is now the commercial hub and hence can be termed as commercial capital of Kerala. Consisting of several islands over which the city has spread, Kochi has one of the finest harbours on the Arabian Sea Coast. It is also a major naval base. The close proximity of the wharves, railway terminus and airport has added to give Kochi the name as the "Queen of the Arabian Sea". Kochi is the base for tourists to see places in the interior of Kerala. Centuries old Chinese connection can also be observed in the form of huge cantilevered "cheenavals- Chinese fishing nets", hung from bamboo and teakwood poles at Vasco de Gama Square.
