Tamil Nadu set to build new hotels and parks

The Indian state of Tamil Nadu is hoping to see an influx of tourists after the implementation of its Vision 2023 plan.

As part of the scheme, the government has allocated a significant pot of money for the construction of hotels (including four and five star premises), amusement parks and eco parks, the Times of India reports.

“If India is to realise its enormous potential in this sector, we must provide world-class facilities matched with technology qualified workforce to our guests,” said Kalyani Mathivanan.

Tamil Nadu, whose capital is Chennai, lies at the southernmost tip of India and even before these additions already has a number of spectacular highlights which draw in many thousands of tourists.

These include the Vivekananda Rock Memorial perched atop a rock located 500m off the mainland, the figurine-covered Kapaleeshwarar Temple located in Chennai and the ornate rock cuttings at Mahabalipuram that date from the 7th century.
