Kerala- Asia's best travel destination

Kerala Tourism got a boost when the million-plus readers of the acclaimed travel portal, SmartTravelAsia.com, placed the state as the best Asian holiday destination ahead of Bali, Phuket and the Maldives in a poll conducted over 3 months across Asia (India, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and the Middle East), Europe and North America.

25 Reasons why you should visit Kerala

'Discover Kerala' initiative for UAE nationals

A Malayalee association is organising a unique initiative to lead a delegation from UAE to Kerala for exploring the art, culture and traditions of the south Indian state.

The initiative “Discover Kerala”, which has been taken up by the World Malayalee Council (WMC) in association with Kerala Tourism Ministry, will enable a group of 20 UAE nationals to visit “God’s own country” by the year-end.

“Through the first-of-its-kind initiative, WMC aims to familiarise the chosen delegates, including government officials and prominent community members, with Kerala’s tourism potentials, especially backwater tourism and eco-tourism, and the art forms, culture and traditions of the state,” WMC publicity and media convener Sajan Veloor said.

“We are also trying to let them understand the potentials of Ayurvedic treatment methods,” Veloor said, adding, this will be the first time that a group of Emiratis are visiting Kerala on an official trip.

“Officials of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing have already expressed their interest in such an initiative. On the other hand, we have secured the support from the Kerala Tourism Ministry. Our members from the business community are sponsoring the Emirati delegation, by bearing all expenses for their travel and stay,” he said.

K-Factory '09: Review & Questions


Details of this quiz

QM: Snehaj Srinivasan

Good content was the USP of the quiz and quizmaster. Also important to note was the gradation of rounds in the finals (easiest first ending with a Stage 2).

Quiz had two LVCs, a brands round on buzzer. A few dry rounds and a theme round.

A good quiz with a vibrant audience marked K-Factory as the main event of ICE ’09.

Special mention to the great hospitality of DMS (esp the incharge Sadiya). Definitely hope to quiz again in God’s own country..
