Factors shaping physical development of tourism in Kerala

With respect to the development of new tourism destinations Kerala has taken the lead among the various states in South India.

·Physical constraints
·The nature of tourism resources and attractions
·Conditions that control planning and investment
·Levels of integration
·The nature of the tourism market

The spatial forms that result from this interplay are conceived as falling broadly into four categories. They are

·Zones and

In spatial terms, these different forms are associated with varying levels of concentration or dispersal and may also be located into one of the several geographic ‘contexts’ that are expressed as

·Simple continua
·Urban/rural, inland
