Kerala expanding experiential tourism facilities

Published on : Thursday, November 21, 2019

Gone are the days when regular camera-and-bottle wielding tourists thronged the typically ‘popular destinations’ on offer in the ‘God’s Own Country – Kerala. The state responsible tourism mission (RT) plans to launch 20 experiential tourist packages soon.

 

K Rupesh Kumar, state convener, RT Mission, said that they are discussing with various municipalities and gram panchayats to set up links with local stakeholders and the tourism industry of Kerala.

 

To quote Rupesh Kumar, “Today, tourists are looking for something organic and this can be provided by the local residents in each region in a holistic fashion. There is a lot of tourist potential in things we take for granted such as farming.”

 

He said that among their plans of experiential tourism are fish farming in Chellanam, Pokkali farming in Kadamakkudy and cultural tourism in Amballur.
