The Kerala Tourism Mobile App is yet another entry to elevate the tourism sector in the state. The app was formally launched by actor Mohanlal in the presence of Public Works and Tourism Minister PA Mohamed Riyaz on Saturday.
The new app is designed to help users explore new possibilities and introduce others to the new places they find. In this way, local tourism destinations in every nook and corner of Kerala will be noticed internationally. Passengers can make inquiries using the possibility of a voice assistant. The information will be received as voice answers while avoiding the difficulty of typing.
Some of the features include exploring tourist attractions on your own, share information & visuals of new-found destinations, find clean & safe restrooms anywhere in Kerala, find restaurants and local tastes easily have real-time information about everything around you and details on nearby service providers for accommodation.
The app also provides information on the nearby attractions from the place of your stay, directions, exclusive pictures, and videos of Kerala. The Travel Desk provides you travel tips, details on maps, souvenir shops, and other essential information. Reach out to the information centres for queries regarding Visa on arrival or about your travel.

A detailed page each on beaches, backwaters, hills, wildlife, and waterfalls. There are e-brochures on each of the districts of the state.

“There are a lot of unknown tourist destinations in Kerala that can be found through this app. I have been to various places in Kerala for shooting purposes. Each place is unique. This app will make our journey more easier and informative. Hoping that this app will cause a new revolution in the tourism industry,” Mohanlal said at the inauguration.
The innovative Tourism mobile app, which will be launched in the nature of a gaming station with added augmented reality possibilities, hopefully, will be well received.
