Steps have been taken to construct floating restaurants at boathouses in

The minister who reviewed the Tamilnadu hotels in Mettur and Salem
on Thursday said, reviews are being carried out in all the districts to
improve the tourism industry in accordance with the modern times. All
hotels operating under the Tourism Department will be upgraded to par
with private hotels.
In accordance to the announcement of the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu,
the Yercaud hill station will be upgraded at an estimated cost of Rs.10
crore said K.Ramachandran. Further, in Yercaud, a water-based sound
and light show with 3D technology is being set up at the Emerald Lake

lift to view points, build infrastructure and other tourist facilities.
