God’s Own Country – Kerala Promotes to the Trade

Known as God’s own country, Kerala in India had a well attended trade workshop and presentation in Dublin last night (Wednesday). This is a destination that exudes peace and contentment for the visitor, so it is not surprising that the international visitor numbers have increased by 24% over the past decade.

Kerala has 580km of coastline with many beautiful beaches, there are are also hill stations, and homestay accommodations where visitors stay with a local family. Stunning scenery coupled with an amazing heritage and local culture make Kerala a great destination.
