Kerala’s shopping carnival is set to commence from December 15. The extravaganza is likely to metamorphose the Indian state into a one-stop retail destination for bargain-hunters buying tickets on flights to travel to India.
With Grand Kerala Shopping Festival (GKSF) all set to kick-start from December 15, 2012, Kerala, India’s southern province known as a holiday hotspot, is all set to vie for attention of true-blue shoppers who are making tickets reservations for India flights landing in the country around the period.
In a bid to promote this state of India as a global shopping destination, the tourism authorities are coming up with the sixth edition of GKSF. Vacationers can indulge in buying spree till 31st January 2013 and make the most of every penny spent on visiting India and buying flights tickets.
With lucky draw prizes, gifts, campaigns and discounts – the land rich in natural splendour is going to transform into a verdant paradise for shopaholics and merrymakers. Myriads of unique and cheap souvenirs, ayurvedic products, gold jewellery, handloom textiles, handicrafts, tribal artefacts and coir products will be on offer.
A “Global Village” set in beautiful Bolgatty Island, off the coast of Kochi, is another drawing card of the festival. Featuring panoply of stalls from participating nations showcasing their wonderful cultures, traditions and crafts, it surely is going to catch the fancy of westerners who are buying tickets deals on flights arriving in India.
The retail-therapy fiesta coincides with peak tourism season and popular Sabarimala pilgrimage. Irresistible delights for retail therapy, serene backwaters, dulcet climes and year-end jamborees to boot – it is a time when holidaymakers buying flights tickets can have the best of everything.
