Tourism development requires massive investments in the development of infrastructure, primarily in the form of accommodation facilities, transportation services and public utilities. Tourism, by definition, is centered upon travel and on staying away from home. Hence the provision of both transportation and accommodation will be integral elements within the development programmes. In kerala holiday package have been designed with the above aspects in mind.
Transportation developments need to take into account the need for external linkages (ports, airports, international rail terminals, etc) to allow tourists to gain access to their choice destinations, as well as provision that allows for the circulation within the destination area (local roads, vehicle hire services, etc). Accommodation developments may reflect particular market segments at which the destination is being targeted (for example, luxury hotels for discerning international travelers). Otherwise they must cater to the diversity of tourism demand by providing not just serviced accommodation in the form of hotels, but also cheaper or more flexible forms of accommodation that includes:
• Apartment blocks
• Villa developments
• Time-share or caravans and
• Camping sites
The expectations of quality that many tourists carry with them also have implications in the quality of public utilities, water supply, sanitation and electricity that are provided to the tourists. These are the essential underpinnings to most forms of modern tourism developments. In earlier times, the quality of the above mentioned services was not up to the mark in certain destinations. But with the availability of better technologies, things have changed like never before.
