Kerala aims to redevelop the ancient spice route for the modern traveller by connecting with 31 countries in Europe, Asia and Far East to create a new experience for tourists. “Traditionally, we have relied on our beaches, backwaters, ayurveda and hill stations to promote tourism,” state tourism secretary Suman Billa said. “Now, we want to project the state as the heart of the ancient spice route, with links to other trading nations.

Besides re-establishing Kerala’s maritime trade relations, built on ‘pepper’ with the 31 countries, the plan is to trigger voyages and excursions for the traveller. The emphasis would also be on cultural, historical and archaeological exchanges.

Countires like Myanmar, China, Denmark, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Syria, Turkey and many more will be the part of Kerala plans to collaborate in.
