Kerala travels

In conditions where the local planning processes and control are poor, development will tend to be spontaneous and will produce anarchic patterns in which the negative impacts will often be more pronounced. When analyzing the examples of linear-zonal development across the globe, we get important insights into the current state of affairs. It is widely evident when investigating these aspects in certain parts of Kerala. When exploring kerala travels across the length and breadth of the state will reveal this one aspect.

The physical developments in tourism are, of course, linked with a range of environmental and social impacts, but the closest ties are arguably economic in character. Tourism may:
• Aid economic development through the generation of foreign exchange earnings
• Exert beneficial effects upon the balance of payment accounts
• Create substantial volumes of employment
• Assist in the redistribution of wealth from the richer to the poorer regions
• Promote and finance infrastructural improvements
• Diversify economies and create new patterns of economic linkages

Less positively, however, tourism’s economic effect may also:
• Increase the dependence upon foreign investors and companies
• Introduce instabilities and weaknesses in the labor markets
• Divert investments from other areas of development

In Kerala, the travel and tourism sector is a major contributor to not only the state exchequer but also to the Gross Domestic Product (GNP). This is due to the fact that this state is blessed with a salubrious climate due to the large sea coast along the Indian Ocean. From beach resorts to hill stations, this place teems with a wide biodiversity unseen elsewhere. In the coming years, more developments are expected when the global recession gives way to an economic boom.

  • International Tourists are required to carry their original Passport and Visa on their vacation to Kerala. However, it is advisable to make many copies of these and other important documents and keep them separate from the originals. Also do carry some ID document on you at all times.
  • You may need to make an oral declaration of your baggage as you disembark in one of the airports of Kerala. Although there is no limit to the amount of foreign currency you bring in, you may require to fill up a Currency Declaration Form if the value of foreign currency you bring in is more than US$ 10000 or its equivalent. Instead of bringing in physical cash it makes sense to bring in Travelers’ Checks and Credit Cards.
  • A Visa to Kerala, India could be valid from anywhere between 15 days to 6 months. If you require an extension on the Visa, please do apply well in advance to- Foreigners Registration Office Office of the Commissioner of Police, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum). Ph: 0471-2320555.
  • International tourists originating or traveling through Yellow Fever endemic countries should carry a Yellow Fever Vaccination certificate to conform to the existing International Health Regulations.
  • Use of cash can be avoided as most hotels and accommodations accept major credit cards such as AmEx, Masters, Diners and Visa.
  • Change your foreign currency into INR (Indian Rupees) only through authorized foreign currency exchange agents. Most established hotels either have such a forex desk or can arrange for the same.
  • Women are advised to wear decent clothing. Low necklines and swimwear are best avoided even on a beach. Nudity is a legal offence; hence do not go topless on the beaches. It is also advisable to abstain from abusive language and intimate gestures such as hugging and kissing in public. Use of drugs and narcotics too is a heavily punishable offence in Kerala.

In India you can see lots of places which are best for romantic and Kerala is one of them where you can enjoy in all seasons.

It is identified for its attractive beaches and extensive backwater. You can find lots of places over there like Forts, Hills, Monuments, Museums, Pilgrim centers and Waterfalls etc. I’d definitely recommend travelers to take a tour towards this place.
