If Dubai is building artificial islands in the sea, our men from the 'God's own country' are all set to build a floating village!
The proposed water-wonder, according to the Kerala government, will be a cluster of 100 houseboats offering over 600 rooms equipped with all modern amenities.
The houseboats, called 'Kettuvalloms' in Malayalam, are boats made by tying together pieces of wood and are a great hit among tourists who wish to explore Kerala's backwaters. The houseboat village will come up off the coast of Kochi by December this year.
