Homestay in Kerala

Homestay is novel idea in Kerala. As a tourst destination Kerala is not so popular for home stays. Even we search in internet the results are not worthy and useful. Its also difficult to get homes for rent. Recently I have searched house for rent in US, the result is marvellous and useful. For example Rent Edmonton gives lot of information on their rental properties in Edmonton area of the state. As compared to these informations the information provided by our local sites are very less.
The homestays in Kerala is still sleeping behind the travel facilitators of the state. This will put heavy expense on the shoulder of tourists and foreigners. If they provide their facilities through the internet, then the tourists can approach the homestays directly and both will benefited mutually.
Its time to use the technology for everything

Kerala or Europe?

Kerala, Gods own country has its own peculiarities and versatilities. The long beaches, backwater and hills are really panoramic. Is there any place in the world similar to Kerala? I am sure its not.
I think there may be places betterthan Kerala for nightlife, shopping or skeing. If you like night life, shopping or skeing, it is best to choose Europe. In Europe France and UK have lot of places for fun and visit. There are lot of churches and other monuments related with the emperor are in France and UK. Now a days the travel and accommodation are immensely cheap in Europe compare to earlier days. In Paris, there are lot of luxurious hotels are available for cheap rates if you reserve earlier through online.

London in UK has another historic place to see. The historic monuments and modern structures are beautifully coincided. You can live like a King in London in luxurious hotels for cheap rates.

Manchester in London is another location in UK to visit. This place is popular for foot ball and cricket. Reserve your accommodation before going to Manchester. You get royal accommodation for cheaper rate.

Have a nice time in Europe.

Web portals - bunch of informations

By the arrival of Computer and Internet, scope of Tourism has increased a lot. It is very easy for a person to gather details either of a remote location or a popular place by browsing internet.
There are many web portals, which provides details of a bunch of similar categories of places or location. Recently I have visited a website which provides lot of information about plenty of hotels in Dublin. This portal provides details of hotels in Barcelona and even about the hotels in Israel. Actually this is a web portal, which provide huge information on the subject they handle. When you come to the portal of hotels in Dublin, you get all the details of most of the hotels in Dublin along with online booking facilities. This is really increase the density of tourism in that destination.
In Kerala also these kind of strategies are stared and best web portals are flourishing. Hope this will boost up the tourism activities in Kerala.

Varkala - Thiruvananthapuram

Varkala is a seaside resort and spa. It is also an important Hindu centre of pilgrimage. The final resting place of the great social reformer, Sree Narayana Guru, is near Varkala, atop a hill called Sivagiri. High cliffs with mineral springs rise majestically from the coastline. According to a myth, sage Narada was approached by a group of mendicants who confessed to having sinned. Narada threw his valkkalam (cloth made of the bark of a tree) into the air, and the place where it landed was subsequently named Varkala. The mendicants were directed by Narada to offer their prayers in the newly created place by the seashore. The place where they prayed for redemption, came to be known as the Papanasham Beach (Papanasham means redemption from sins). The 2000 year old Sree Janardhana Swamy Temple and the Nature Cure Centre are the two main attractions here. A century old tunnel is another attraction.
