Kerala Blog Express took off with 27 bloggers on 10th March from Trivandrum. Aimed with the idea to promote Kerala Tourism this contingent was chosen after a stringent contest held online with travel bloggers vying to get into the top 27 slot of winners. Around 600 bloggers from 80 countries participated in this first of its kind tourism promotion exercise.
The winners of the contest are
Edgar Alan Zeta-Yap.
Eva – unaideaunviaje.
Oscar Augusto Risch Neto.
Stefania van Lieshout.
ThePinay Solobackpacker (Gael Hilotin).
These bloggers would get to enjoy a 2 week sojourn of Kerala where they get to experience the destinations, culture, people and life by the backwaters, beaches, wildlife and hill stations.
2 weeks of fun filled holiday would come to an end on 25th March 2014 and each blogger is required to write blogs on their experience. A luxury bus specially branded for Kerala Blog Express is on the move from day one taking these winners across the beauty of Kerala. Going by the blog posts by these chosen savvy bloggers this Kerala Tourism initiative is already a hit. All credits to Kerala Tourism for this nouvelle initiative.
