Corona fear, after stirring the world, is finally receding. As people learnt to face the pandemic fear and fight back with safety precautions, all sectors including tourism have started to boom up. Unlike the previous year when travelling was considered a high risk activity, now many places have resumed their tourism ventures. Kerala, now a well vaccinated state, is safe to travel. Hotels and restaurants have taken strict measures by reducing the number of seating and updating accommodation policies. From north to south, major tourist destinations have now opened. What is Kerala without houseboat tourism? Allappey and Kumarakom, famous for their iconic houseboat rides are gaining back to its glory. Cochin, having the legacy and memories of the British, Dutch and Portuguese administration, is famous for the monuments and beaches here. Cochin is also ready to intake tourists after the pandemic. If you are looking for a chilly boat ride and some Safari, Thekkady is now open to tourists. You can visit Wayanad if you are looking for a rough terrain and exploring forests. While measuring the safety, we also have to analyze the sanitization procedures employed by the tourism sector. All tourist destinations have opened following proper protocols. If someone checks into a hotel, it is compulsory to take room temperature. Secondly their luggage is sanitized before allotting rooms. Hotel staffs are asked to use proper sanitization methods and wear masks while using a public area. Kerala government has taken the initiative and vaccinated all people working under tourism sector. People who are coming to stay in any hotel should have an RTPCR negative result with them or at least one dose of vaccine shot should be taken. Rather than revenue generation, hotels have kept health as priority. They care for the wellbeing of their staff and guests equally and thereby have implemented strict rules for tourists from outside the state. If a person from another state is planning for a trip here, they are supposed to complete the two doses of vaccination or have an RTPCR test certificate taken less taken in less than 72 hours.
