The Dreamy Aymanam Village In Kerala Is Listed In The ‘World’s 30 Best Places To Visit’

Aymanam, bordered by Lake Vembanad and River Meenachil, is a pristine village located near Kottayam. This cozy village became the limelight of Kerala in November last year with its Responsible Tourism (RT) Village project. The project was awarded ‘Indian Responsible Tourism One to Watch’ at the World Travel Market (WTM). Aymanam is since then famous for its travel initiatives showcasing heritage and culture. After this global feat, Aymanam village is all set to implement the innovative ‘STREET’ project for visitors. Read on to know more!

What is ‘STREET’?

‘STREET’ is a new project by the Responsible Tourism Mission of the Kerala Government and stands for ‘Sustainable, Tangible, Responsible, Experiential, Ethnic, Tourism hub’. The project is based on the latest theme of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), ‘Tourism for inclusive growth.’ STREET aims to democratize tourism and offer a new experience to travellers. Very soon you will see the project being implemented in wards 1 and 20 of the Aymanam panchayat. Streets in these wards are going to highlight various themes based on the specialties of Aymanam. From nature and scenery, traditional cuisines to ethnic lifestyle and backwater views, you will witness it all. As soon as the project takes off, various areas of the village will have their own ‘streets’. The chosen names like Green Street, Cultural Street, Agri-tourism Street, etc, are going to be familiar to tourists in the coming years. ‘STREET’ project only has a four-year term. So we can expect to see a new version of the picturesque Aymanam village very soon!
