Kerala to be re-branded as 'The Land of Adventure'

P. Bala Kiran, IAS, Director, Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala, in an exclusive interview with Voyager's World; talks about the novel initatives and promotional plans that are expected to boost tourist arrivals to the state.

ANJU ANNA ALEX

The new tourism policy is expected to give more thrust to tourism infrastructure. Can you elaborate?

The government of Kerala will unveil its new tourism policy focused on 'green carpet' initiative. Under this initiative, the tourism board of the state plans to build a sustainable destination management system. Envisaging the green carpet initiative as a comprehensive awareness campaign, the government plans to embody the state as a cleanest, safest, healthiest state to woo the tourists across the world.

Moreover, our aim is to target the youth by offering them adventure tourism.

What are the new eco-tourism initiatives? I also came across the fact that Kerala Tourism is trying to promote adventure tourism.

The Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala is following a robust development plan in order to promote the adventure tourism of the state as it has huge potential and can substantially contribute to the overall growth of the tourism sector. With the prime focus on developing new possibilities to drive the adventure tourism, the tourism board is keen on working closely with the forest Department. The endeavor of joint efforts with the forest department will result in the growth of adventure tourism without harming the environment.

Kerala will be re-branded as ‘The Land of Adventure’ to woo the younger generation of tourists by offering them activity and water-based tourism. Moreover, the Department of Tourism has planned to develop water based activities like Kayaking, Cruise tourism. With the prime focus on developing new possibilities to accelerate the growth of adventure tourism, Kerala Tourism has been working with the Forest Department. The joint endeavor will result in the growth of adventure tourism without affecting the environment. Additionally, the state government plans to develop 10 eco-tourism circuits to connect various forests in order to promote green tourism.

Kerala offers vacationers to explore adventure activities like trekking, wildlife safari, mountain climbing, river rafting, paragliding etc. To promote green tourism, the state government plans to develop 10 eco-tourism circuits to connect various forests. As per the Kerala Tourism survey report of 2016, sixty-five per cent of our population is below 35 years of age so we want to create an activity-based image for Kerala. All along its coast lines it plans to develop water parks and promote water based activities. We will subsidise water sports and incentivize these.

What are the efforts to promote tourism in North Kerala?

The state is extensively focusing on promoting the Northern Kerala as a tourist destination. To increase the geographical spread of tourist arrivals to the state, Kerala Tourism now plans to promote its Malabar region aggressively through a ₹325-crore project. This include unexplored destinations like Kozhikode, Wayanad, Vekkal, and Kannur. Kerala Tourism will link up the circuit through an exciting river cruise project - called Malanadu cruise - that links eight rivers and backwaters of Kannur and Kasargod districts. Apart from the river cruise, Kerala Tourism is investing in light and sound shows at Bekal and Kannur, music fountains, monsoon tourism in Wynad, etc.

To attract vacationers across the world, the state is also offering diversified holiday packages, featuring an outing through Kozhikode and Wayanad districts, covering beach, Pookot lake, Muthanga Wild Life Sanctuary, Soochipara and Meenmutty waterfalls and Banasura Sagar Dam.

Once the unexplored Malabar region takes off, the state is hopeful of doubling its tourist arrival numbers. The goal is to double foreign tourist numbers by 2021 and grow the domestic tourist (currently it is 13 million) by 50 per cent.

Despite an aggressive marketing campaign Kerala stands at no. 18 in attracting domestic visitors. Any remedial measures in this direction?

Kerala Tourism spends around 30% of its budget on branding and marketing. The share of digital media has gone up in the state’s advertising and marketing budget. It accounts for 20 percent of the total in its latest campaign. Furthermore, the state will be re-branded as ‘The Land of Adventure’ to attract the adventure enthusiasts across the world.

In 2016-17, the state saw 13.1 mn domestic tourists, up by 5.4% as compared to the previous year. The state is looking to push up domestic tourist arrivals by over 8% every year. Further, the aim is to double the number of travelers from home as well abroad by 2021 targeting the millennial travelers. And to achieve this there is no other way, but to reinvent ourselves. Henceforth, while retaining and increasing the existing portfolios and locations, the focus would be to attract new generations. North Kerala will be promoted in a big way with a major thrust on experience-led tourism.

Kerala Tourism has planned several trade shows across high potential domestic markets in order to promote state tourism. Some of the planned trade shows are outlined below:

Recently Kerala has received a lot of accolades including Munnar being adjudged as the Best Destination for Romance at the Lonely Planet Magazine Indian Travel Awards 2017. Kerala Tourism was also voted as 'India's favourite Waterfront Destination' for Alleppey by the HolidayIQ Better Holiday Awards. The ‘Responsible Tourism’ (RT) initiatives of Kerala have yet again garnered recognition with the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) describing them as a model for other destinations to replicate. Comments.

These accolades are recognition to the efforts of the Tourism Department. These promising awards demonstrate the versatility of the state as a tourist destination. Moreover, they inspire us to raise the benchmark in taking up new initiatives to enhance tourism projects or initiatives. The state’s tourism department will continue to keep up the positive momentum with its perennial growth trajectory.

Moreover, Kerala has bagged 9 national awards across various segments of the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry whereas Kerala Tourism has been lauded with 6 National Tourism Awards 2015-2016. Shri Kadakampally Surendran, Hon’ble Minister for Tourism, Government of Kerala received six National Tourism Awards from The President Shri Ram Nath Kovind on the occasion of World Tourism Day 2017. Interestingly, Kerala Tourism has been lauded with Hall of fame award for the ‘Most Innovative Use of Information Technology - Social Media / Mobile App’ for the ninth consecutive year. Kerala tourism also bagged an award for the Best Responsible Tourism Initiative for ‘Kumarakom’. The categories for other awards include Best State for ‘Comprehensive Development of Tourism’ and Best Civic Management of a Tourist Destination Category ‘C’ for ‘Sarovaram Bio Park’. Sarovaram Biopark is the only eco-friendly biopark in Kerala promoting the conservation of mangrove forests and wetlands. The biopark is located right at the heart of the city. Out of these six awards, Kerala Tourism bagged two awards in the marketing category, including ‘Best Tourism Promotion Publicity Material’ for a film tourism brochure- ‘Your Next Blockbuster Destination’ and ‘Excellence in Publishing in Foreign language other than English’ for a Spanish Brochure titled “Reanimar – Enel Propio Pais de Dios”. The film tourism brochure highlights the picturesque beaches, exotic wildlife, hill stations and unexplored backwaters that are amongst just a few of the prime locations that can be used to shoot any form of media.

You have been spearheading the initiative to promote inclusiveness by announcing a policy to initiate barrier free travel experience for differently-abled tourists. Your comments.

Kerala Tourism is implementing “Barrier Free Kerala Tourism” this year, which shall result in creating accessible spaces to the differently abled and elderly tourists. Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala (generally referred to as Kerala Tourism) provides funding to small projects that create facilities and infrastructure useful for tourists in destinations across the state. As the first step towards providing more services to the disabled, the tourism board plans to equip all major tourist destinations in the state with basic facilities for the differently abled tourists.

A set of guidelines have been prepared and released for guiding those agencies preparing projects. We will be following this up with meetings with agencies running museums, cultural centres and shopping zones, to encourage them to adopt these guidelines and make modifications on site. The challenge will be to convert popular tourist sites and making these disabled friendly.

When is the best time to visit Kerala? What is the expected growth in footfall for this year?

Tourists visit Kerala to experience the natural beauty and vibrant culture of the state. Monsoon season is one of the best time to visit Kerala. Kerala attracts maximum footfall during this period owing to the popularity of Ayurveda treatment. As per the Ayurvedic traditions, monsoon is the best time to undergo the Ayurvedic treatment as the weather becomes perfect during this time frame, making the therapy much more effective. Over the years, Kerala has emerged as the most preferred honeymoon and wedding destination across the country. The state has its own charm to attract domestic as well as international tourists during different seasons of the year.

Another key attraction of visiting Kerala during monsoon is Onam, which takes place around August-September. This festival is amongst the must watch traditional festivals of India. The monsoon time is also the period when the picturesque boat races are held.

Kerala has witnessed 10,38,419 foreign tourists and 1,31,72,535 domestic tourist arrivals during 2016, with an increase of 6.23 percent and 5.4 percent respectively. The tourism department. The state targets to increase domestic tourist arrivals by over 8% and international tourist arrivals by 13 percent, every year.
