Provide advice about a home-stay tourism business in Kerela, India
Whilst we continue to provide Joseph and HREASEDC with information, contacts, and links to organisations who can help with setting up a home-based medical care program, we would like to explore the possibilities of setting up a home-stay tourism business to generate income for the medical program.
Home-stay is an accommodation option where tourists pay a small amount of money and stay with local people to experience their culture and way of life.
The Kottayam district in the southern Indian state of Kerela is a very popular tourism destination for tourists. It has a lot to offer the tourist.
Please help Joseph understand what is involved with setting up such a tourism business. What sort of information does he need to gather to set the business up? Can you provide guidance on whether this is a good idea or not?
